    Is there anything pre installed on the phones SD card for the phone that would need to be transferred to the new 32gig card I just got? Can I just pop the new card in as is or will I have to do some special re formatting and move of some secret Samsung programming to the new card? If I have to transfer something how is it done?

    No you don't have to do anything special. Just turn the phone off, take out the old card, put in the new card, and turn the phone back on. The phone will briefly format the new card and it'll be ready to use.

    With the Epic it's not even necessary to power down the phone. Just pry off the back panel and swap out cards.

    Samsung does not store any programming on the SD card. Some Apps may have stored information on the card which you may need to transfer or re-download though. It would be easy to check with a computer via USB, or even with Sprint's pre-installed file viewer.
