    Got my new phone yesterday. All went well until I tried to access my Transcend 32GB SD card transferred from my Droid X. Not listed in Files. Went to settings -> Storage. SD Card is grayed out and "Insert SD Card" is grayed out. Did a Windows repair on card. No joy. Pulled 32GB Samsung card from my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. No joy for it either. Found a16GB card laying around. Formatted it in Windows. Still no joy. Boxed phone up and sending it back today. Phone came with ICS and hadn't updated to JB yet.

    Bad phone or could it be something else? Now I am kind of afraid of this phone considering how buggy JB is. The flimsy plastic back cover is scary too. Doubt it will last long especially if you need to keep swapping stuff and doing battery pulls. Not impressed with this $750 phone.

    Did I just get a lemon or are these thing buggy?

    Can't. Phone does not see any of three working cards I tried. Needs to see them before it can format one.

    Strange one.
    Aye, return it mate :thumbup:
    Ps the back cover is very tough considering how thin it has to be to keep the phone so sleek n sexy while having removable battery :)

    New one arrives tomorrow. Amazon is great. Since no one else has this issue, I'm assuming it was hardware.

    Verizon 32GB ones come in blue and white. Mine is blue. Thought I wouldn't like it but it is really a very nice gun metal blue and you know how we Yanks like that.
