Friends, I am reaching the end of frustration . . . . the consideration of making the switch to an apple product level of frustration. I love my Note II for many reasons. Too bad it doesn't work. I cannot seem to get it to permanently store anything on the SD card. It may store copied files for a day, two days, or a mere hour before relinquishing them, and then no more. By this I mean that my music player will prompt me that that it is sorry, but the player cannot recognize the file - like a bad break-up speech or something. I half expect a secondary prompt to appear stating "It's not you - it's me". Sometimes it will play the first 2 seconds of a song before skipping on to the next track, sometimes it will sound like a badly damaged CD, and skip the whole way through a song. With photos, I either get strange color blocking on portions of photos, or a black screen with a white figure and a lightning bolt. I wanted to post a photo of my niece taking her first steps . . . . with the waist down portion conveniently lost forever, for no apparent reason. I tried; a new SD card, debugging, searching in a root explorer for a .nomedia file, factory reset, SD formatting, and even got a replacement phone when Rogers could not identify the issue . . . the new phone has the exact same problems. Can anyone think of any other considerations before disassociating my family with Android forever? Arghh.
