    HELP... I have received a new business phone, the V8, and great it seems to be.
    Anyway I purchased and inserted a new SD card to expand the memory.

    Upon insertion i got two options (and it was over a week ago so bear with me):
    to combine memory or keep separate (or something like that)
    Which is recommended? This is the first I have seen this on Android (after having several)!

    I chose the combine, which implies to me that the phone is going to have its operating system everywhere, and create serious difficulty when I have to leave this phone.

    Can anyone advise better? All I'm interested in is to save media onto SD card.

    When you eventually have to hand the business phone back, what's on the micro-SD will NOT be readable by any other device or computer, and will need to be reformatted before it can be used again.

    If you use the separate rather than combine, all media, docs etc saved to the micro-SD will still be fully accessible by other phones and computers.

    Thanks, that is what I was worried about. Who would even want this option, creating havoc.
    Is this and Android feature, or something Vodafone have introduced?
    Now how do I reverse selecting the combine???
