    Hi, Never had this issue until a couple of days ago. I have only had this handset for a couple of weeks and recently it shutdown and restarted prompoting a message to be sent to HTC.

    Once that happened whenever I have moved an app from phone to SD it tells me its had failed to work......but if you try again, immediately after, it is successful....anyone had this issue and now of a resolution??

    Thanks

    I had this failure message a couple times on my htc inspire and like you if I try again right after then it moves. But that seemed to happen after my sd card unmounted itself. That was with the sd card that came with the phone. But since I got a new card (ordered from an online retailer) I have not had this issue.

    So are you using the sd card that came with your phone? Have you tried unmounting the card then remounting it?

    Backup your data, move all apps back to phone and format the card.
    Fresh format may fix certain card issues.
