    You can factory reset without formating internal sd. When you do the reset there is a checkbox at bottom of one of the prompts. If it's unchecked it won't format.

    Did you happen to root and uninstall any system apps after the update?

    If you have card reader plug sdcard into a computerand see if it comes up, if so backup everything, format it and retry in phone.

    If either of these don't work I'd call vm and complain that their update screwed up your phone. Sounds like it borked the mass storage system.

    If you have dropbox you can enable camera upload and it will sync those photos with your dropbox folder and then reset the device.
