Default My grand scheme to acquire a 32gb micro sdhc

I posted this in the Droid X section, but I figured people here might have some insight as well;

Quote:
I own a Motorola Droid and I'm quite happy with it, and wanted to pick up a 32gb micro sd card. So I thought to myself "if I buy a Droid X and get the 32gb micro SD card with it, then return the Droid X later, then I basically get the SD card at 50% off."

Any flaws in my plan? If not, I'm definitely going to do this tomorrow
Based on this: http://www.androidcentral.com/sites/androidcentral.com/files/articleimage/684/2010/06/droid-x-accessories/DROID%20X%20_Accessories%20FINAL.pdf

See Page 3.

Think my plan will work?

They'll most likely take the price of the card out of your returned money from the phone.

The Droid X doesn't come with a 32gb card. It comes with a 16gb card (expandable to 32gb) and 8gb of internal storage.

Update: I see what you're saying. No, I don't think it will work.

2 things:

$99 is not 50% of $149, it is more like 67%...

I just did a search and you can get a 32GB microSDHC from TopRAM (Class 4) for a bit less than that, but the SanDisks are all still in the $130+ range.

The SanDisks are $200 from the SanDisk website, and every other 3rd party selling em for less has been a scam so far, hence the mention of 50%.

And seeing as I've never heard of TopRAM til now, I'm not sure I'd trust their products. As far as flash memory is concerned, I stick to (in no particular order) Transcend, SanDisk, Kingston, ADATA, Patriot, OCZ and Crucial.

This is what I found:

I cannot see all of those being scams.

The only reputable one on that list is Amazon, and if you go to the reviews they're both 1 star; customers received fake cards.

There are reputable sellers offering SanDisk's 32GB microSD for less than $200. Provantage and J&R are never my top picks but they're not scam artists like many of the discount resellers.

That's because it wasn't from Amazon. The Amazon site lists products from other sellers. Look at the right hand side of the page for the product itself.

To the OP...

I just asked my friend who works at a Verizon store how they would handle the situation you described. He said that your plan is a horrible idea. In fact, you'd end up paying more for the SD card than if you were to just buy it outright. First, they'd take out the difference (which is about $50) from your refund. Second, you'd be charged the automatic $35 restocking fee for all returned phones - even ones that have not been taken out of the box. So if you go with this grand scheme of yours, you'll end up paying $184.99 for an SD card that you could have had for $149.99.

And it's people like you who are always looking for a way to cheat the system who ruin things for the rest of us.

On the positive, my discount says I can get it for $50. On the negative it says in 3 different places that it is not compatible with the Droid.

lol @ the "people like you" comment. way to stick your head up your ass there, sir pompous.

nothing wrong with looking for the best deal. i ended up ordering it through vzw's website, and i'll be getting it delivered overnight for $125 and some change.

but hey you stick to your high horse and pay full retail for it, because that's what "people like you" do.

tool...

That's a load of crap. When we bought these phones we were promised capabilities of up to 32gb. There's a 32gb card in the wild and it doesn't work with the Droid? BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

There's no reason it shouldn't work on the Droid. 32gb is still SDHC. Once SDXC cards are produced, those surely won't work with our Droids... but I see no reason for any micro SDHC to be incompatible.

My guess is that stuff about it not working with the Droid is just to push Droid X sales. Either way I'll find out when the 32gb card I ordered arrives. I chose overnight shipping so if it ships tonight, I might have it tomorrow night. Knowing my luck, I won't have it til monday -_-;

Strange... I submitted my order 5:45 AM... with overnight shipping, that should be plenty of time to process the order and put it on a truck, when the website says "by 3PM".

I still haven't got any "your order has shipped, here's your tracking number" email.

I'm assuming that you are talking about my post. For some reason, when you simply click on the link, it just takes you to the Verizon Wireless homepage (at least it just did that to me). However, if you right click and copy shortcut, then past it in your browser, it will take you to the 32GB Micro SD card. I'm not sure if the $50 discount is location based, but I don't see why it would be as it is an online deal. If you cannot find it with that link, just type "micro sd" into the search box on the Verizon Wireless website and find the 32GB micro sd card. It comes with a full size sd adaptor and a usb micro adaptor.

But, yes it is the 32 GB one and yes it is for only $99 (at least when I visit the site it is).

Edit: Ok, I see what you are talking about. You are talking about the PICTURE and not the description. I would assume that a 16GB micro sd card is not going to cost $99 after a $50 discount. Also, when you add it to your cart, it shows as a 32GB micro sd card. Chances are that they just don't have a pic for the 32GB one yet or they just accidentally loaded the wrong pic. Besides, the part number even states that it is a 32GB card: Part#: TADP-32GBG.

The interesting thing is that, if you click the compatibility tab on it, it only shows the DROID X - kinda weird, actually.

Also, for even more S&G, check out this comparison I did at the Motorola site: Mobile Phones - Motorola USA

Some key things to note:
  1. DROID lists digital zoom of 4X, DROID X does not
  2. DROID lists OGG, AMR WB, AMR NB and MIDI as playable formats, DROID X does not
  3. DROID list Google Talk for IM, DROID X does not (of course this point is moot since you can get it from market, right?)
  4. DROID lists IMAP, POP3 and Attachment and browser document viewer (M$ Office and Adobe PDF), DROID X does not
  5. DROID does not come with Need for Speed Shift, DROID X does.

Of course there is the onboard memory, the wireless N capabilities, and such bells and whistles on the DROID X, but it is missing the physical KB as well.

Anyhoo, now that I am done with the tangential part of my post, let me get to the point:

BOTH phones show supporting up to 32GB. So why doesn't VZW list the DROID as an option? Trying to scare people into buying a totally useless locked eFused phone as an upgrade b/c the average Joe Blow won't know that the DROID also supports 32GB microSDHC cards?

See Mobile Phones - Motorola USA - A comparison of the DROID and the DROID X.

Scroll to the bottom.

Answer is right there.

El surmised much the same as I did in another thread (before reading this one, BTW) - that VZW is not listing the DROID to 'fool' the average Joe Blow into buying a new phone.

But, you see, I'm smarter than the average bear....

That too is interesting. Maybe that particular micro sd card is locked down by Verizon and Motorola as well.

It actually showed a 32 gb card when it was listed for $149.99 (when I ordered mine)
Then they updated the website with the $99.99 price and the 16 gb pic shows up

You can get the same card at this site with free shipping if you're OK with the $138 price tag.

I care more about the site I'm buying from than the price tag tbqh. I've never heard of erwincomputers, so for all I know it's just some d-bag with a GoDaddy website selling fake cards.

EDIT: Good news, I just checked my order status and my sd card is on a fedex truck out for delivery so I should get it sometime today, but I really don't expect it til late tonight.

Strange that I never got a "your order has shipped, here's the tracking number" email.

I'm anxious to see if this works for you because my SD Card is all but filled up... can't back up any roms... not good since I'm a certified flash-a-holic. Seriously though, I don't know why it's full since I deleted all but my most recent backups and all media. I need this card if it works!

Found it on VerizonWireless. If I do a search for it, it says it is $49.99 but when I hit the "buy" button it goes to $74.99. Oh what fun! Took awhile on the phone with the rep and he had to manually credit my account for the $50.00 but I finally got it for $49.99. Thanks for the tip. Now to wait and see if it really is the 32 GB card or a 16 GB that was mislabeled on their site. Thanks for the tip anyway even if you did mean to post it somewhere else!

nothing wrong with looking for the best deal. i ended up ordering it through vzw's website, and i'll be getting it delivered overnight for $125 and some change.

but hey you stick to your high horse and pay full retail for it, because that's what "people like you" do.

tool...
Will you please let us know if the card you ordered on the Verizon site works in your Droid? Thanks!!

I just ordered that 32 GB card too. Had to "go all around the world" to do it though as when you click on "buy" the price jumps to $74.99. Finally the phone rep manually credited my account and told me to purchase it the usual way through the site. So that means that I got a $50 credit from VZW and my regular discount of 25% too plus free overnight shipping. And my email confirms it is for a 32 GB memory card. Wow. I got a 32 GB card for $30.99 including tax. I think I am in shock.

Well I ordered mine before 3:00 but the VZW website still says my order is being processed and it is now 3:00. Bummer. Guess I won't be seeing my new card tomorrow. Not that I really expected to.

I had the web page pulled up showing the $49.99 price and called Verizon and spoke to a rep. It took him quite a while to first find what I was seeing for himself and then get a supervisor to approve a credit to my account as they couldn't change the price online. Then he told me just to click the "buy" button and pay for it my usual way. I did tell him that I got an employee discount through my work but he didn't seem concerned. I verified that my next bill coming due in August has definitely been reduced by $50.00 and my emailed receipt is for $80.99 which includes $6.00 tax. I also typed in the code for free overnight delivery. (FREEOVERNT) That means that I got that 32 GB card for $30.99.
Hope you can get the same deal.

I think it is actually a boo boo on VZW's site but since I got it for $30.99 when all was said and done I am not complaining.
