    Does anyone ever have trouble taking the back battery cover off? I just got my phone on Monday, and ever since I put the cover on I've wanted to take the cover off to see if I can find where the SD card is (which if anyone could point that out for me that would be great). However, when I get where only the part where it has the slit open, I feel like I would break the rest if I keep pulling that is how good it is on my phone.

    Any suggestions? LOL

    Good lord, I'm such a dork. Nevermind everyone! I was able to successfully be brave and got the back cover off. Ha!

    I also found the SD card, which damn is it small. lol!

    I do have another question though. Say if I were to get a larger GB card, like the one I have in there now is 2GB, could I possibly get in the future a 8GB micro SD card or does it only accept 2GB?

    I've had mine off literally hundreds of times. Don't be so afraid to break it, it's not that fragile. Between battery pulls in bootloops after flashing an unstable ROM to changing batteries, it's really not a big deal. :rolleyes:

    I think alot of people are assuming that because it's flexible, it must be weak. Actually the opposite is true. Because it's flexible, it's LESS likely to break after repeated use.

    Every phone, calculator, etc I've had with a more "solid" battery cover started breaking tabs/etc after a month. My Droid Incredible back is still going strong.

    Thank you guys for checking into that for me. I was just curious was all. Definitely nice that you are able to have a large SD card on it, especially if you tend to possibly take a lot of pictures and etc and I'm one of those people that like to take a lot of pictures. :)

    Thanks again!

    Two things:

    The battery cover, as indicated before, is flexible. I remove mine almost daily (to swap batteries). It's still going fine. Only issue I've heard about is the HTC sticker-logo peeling. I use a case anyway (although a Seidio, which also peels).

    Secondly, the reason Verizon listed the SD limit as 16GB, initially, was because Android 2.1 devices could not format a 32GB card. You'd have to format them using a PC (FAT32) for use within an Android phone. Not sure if 2.2 fixed this issue, but almost all modern smartphones can take a 32GB card.

    Phones that can use MicroSD but not MicroSDHC are limited to 4GB or less. Phones that can use MicroSDHC are generally limited t0 32GB with some exceptions. Phones that will be built to use MicroSDXC will go up to 4TB. Even one of my older phones which was listed by the carrier as supporting "up to 8GB" will take a 32GB just find, since they're both MicroSDHC. Carriers have a habit of listing the max current SD size rather than what the phone can actually take.

    I got my phone just several days after its release, and I'm nearly positive that the documentation that came with it at that time listed 32GB as the max compatible microSD.

    As for the back cover, I also change batteries frequently. I probably remove the back cover 4 - 5 times a week. Hey, being able to change your own battery is one of the (many) reasons Androids are better than iPhones, right? I have the stock battery, an HTC 1500mah from [​IMG]BidAllies on ebay and an 1800mah from HTC Express. My back cover doesn't show any signs of damage.
