Or just copy all your data from the card to the computer and then back to the new one when you get it. (and yes you need to use a micro sd card adapter since your phone is not working)
I really hope this at least will help you save your data. Really sucks to hear about the breakage.
Oh and purchased apps on google will still be there when you re-log into the new phone in the downloads page of the market.
Thanks for that info! that makes sense.. I hadn't thought of swapping the SD card. That's the solution. I found out today I will have to wait till end of next week til they can replace it. Sprint is totally out of Evo's for now. Luckily they will replace it for me. and Luckily I still had my 3 yr old phone so it wasn't a problem. My old phone is so BORING compared to the EVO!
