    This is the second time the same thing has happened. Last time I called Verizon and they had me clean the phone. I was not thrilled. I've combed the web and can't find anything on this. Do I need to go to Verizon for a new phone tomorrow (please say no)?

    Problems I'm Having:

    - On my homescreen, any apps stored on the SD card are displaying the generic Android icon.
    - None of them are listed in the list of all apps.
    - None of them are listed anywhere in settings > apps.
    - I go to the Market, it acts like they're not on the phone at all.
    - When I go to most of the other apps I've been logged out, if it lets me open the app at all. After login I immediately get a "stopped unexpectedly" error message. None of them will let me get anywhere.
    - On bootup I get several "stopped unexpectedly" errors from random apps I assume open on bootup.

    What I've Tried/Know:

    - Tried rebooting and pulling the battery a couple times.
    - Tried ejecting then reinserting SD card a couple times. (in settings > storage, it's still listed at the same level)

    Reformat your sd card.... backup everything on the card first.

    saved all files on the card to a file on my computer. disconnected the phone. unmounted sd card. reformatted.

    plugged back into computer, put everything back on card, restarted phone.

    By this do you mean a factory reset? Looks like the most likely next step here.

    yep. thinking that's my only option and it's just a bad SD card. i even reformatted it and left it clean and it's still giving me the errors. got a new SD card coming on Tues.

    Could even be a bad sd card slot on the phone.
