    Probably not. All the memory card will have is your photos, music, and some app info, but fresh installs tend to ignore it. When you put your memory card in your new phone, it will be just like if you did a factory reset on your current phone.

    Is there anyway to backup your apps? Or, do you have to reload everything from Market? I did a factory reset. It was a pain to get everything back the way I wanted. Yesterday, I experienced the silent phone again. So, I guess I will have to get a new phone.

    You can back them up using Astro.

    use astro to backup apps (under tools selection), then when you have the new phone with your SD card installed, download astro and go to tools to reinstall. do not reinstall astro or it will boot you out of the reinstall process. then go to the android market and press "menu" then "downloads", you will find your other apps there.
