    I have seen several posts about once you have debranded a phone you need to put the goldcard back in to update using the OTA update otherwise you will lose access to your wifi.

    Are there any problems with using my large microsdcard as the goldcard and then permanently leaving it in the phone?

    Thanks
    Paul

    Shouldn't be a problem as far as I'm aware. I'm not an authority on gold cards though

    Is there no way that the gold card info could be written over, or is it write protected, something in the basics of the card that cant be changed?

    If it cant be written over then it cant be an issue im sure :)

    I use my gold card as my sd card no problem. the gold card info is not in the writable section of the card, so you can't over write it.

    I thought that maybe the case. Might have to make my 8GB card into a gold card then too :)
