    I could really use all that space but I hear that some people have experienced problems while using the 32gb card. Can anyone elaborate on the issues that they know of with using this card? Thanks!

    Which card? Some problems have been due to people buying fakes after ignoring too-good-to-be-true-pricing.

    Stick with sandisk, and upgrade to a 4. Then your card will be very nice. :):icon_ banana:

    I've using a Sandisk 32 since they became available and have had absolutely no issues. I formatted it on my pc before I used it and then copied all my stuff off the 16 to it. I do remember one cautionary note from back then and that was to be sure you do not "name" the sdcard during the formatting process.

    Good luck.

    No problems here with a Sandisk 32GB card which was offered at a reduced rate by Verizon a couple of months ago.

    Just stay away from the no-name cheap cards....

    Well I've seen then on amazon for 80 bucks or so. I know that's extremely cheap but I'm going to try it and if it turns out to be a fake I'll cancel the payment and let AmEx chase after them. I figure it's worth a try before spending the full retail price if I might be able to get out for much cheaper.

    Hah!! No idea. When I got my new card I searched for info prior to installing and found that warning repeated in various threads. I'm sure there was an explanation, but it didn't stick in my little brain nearly as well as the actual warning did. :)

    They were actually only $50 from the Verizon Online Store last summer. It was a price mistake, but they honored it for those who got in on it before they corrected the price. Wish I would have bought one back then...
