    j thought i'd give every one the heads up that today a mass email was sent out telling all RS employees how to reformat the SD card. i cant imagine them opening up every box before launch and doing so. but my guess is they want this done when you boot up the device in store. i did it to mine today and only took all of 20 seconds. dont worry you an still ask them not to and take it home and do it.

    I don't get it. What is the point of them formatting the SD card?

    Are they formatted using the phone? Or using a PC? To be honest, I want to get in and out of the RS store as fast as possible. I did order 4 of them and I need to get to work right after I pick them up.

    Just as long as they don't open the phones prior to the customers purchasing them...it's something I'd rather do myself anyway.

    Ok so when people get home and want to install HTC Sync from the card they'll be SOL? I'd assume you could download it again from the HTC site but as of right now, they don't list the EVO on the download page. Seems like this would just confuse some people who actually read the manual.

    Is there anything else preloaded on the card other than HTC Sync?

    Also, I'd assume that if HTC has a software fix for it, that it's not really the card that is the problem.
  22. Do we 'know' the HTC 'fix' just reformats the card and doesn't actualyl 'fix' something else?

    Are you referring to the over the air update reformatting the card? I highly doubt that because people would magically lose whatever they have put on it. This is an update to the phones software. Not an OTA reformatting of the card.

    I understand that but a lot of people will not.

    whoa, you mean the EVo comes with a free desktop sync program, This is something palm never had for the pre but lots of us long term palm users wanted. I can't believe I never heard of this before. One more reason I'm glad I'm switching.
