    I'm sure you've all heard by now that Android 2.1 cannot accommodate 32gb sd cards. If you haven't heard, here's a link explaining it: Droid Can’t Actually Handle Your 32GB SD Card | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog

    When I purchased my Droid, Verizon was advertising its ability to accommodate a 32gb sd card. Now that we know the advertisement was in fact false, it gives us a pretty good argument to use against Verizon. If you’re looking to get a Droid Incredible, why not go to Verizon, tell them you’re upset that you’re the victim of false advertising and demand a remedy. In other words, it can’t hurt to ask Verizon to make up for the false advertisement by allowing you to return your Droid for an early upgrade to the Incredible. You may have to negotiate the specifics but it's definitely worth a shot. I’m trying it. If it works, I'll let you guys know. If someone else tries it, please share your experience.

    I highly doubt it will work. If you wanna give it a shot go ahead but considering its a software issue they probably wont do anything. And plus it is being addressed and 2.2 or 2.5 or whatever update comes next will probably fix it. It could work if you get the right person but with how the people in the stores are they will just say its software and will be fixed.

    Has anyone found a 32 gig card? During my last check I couldn't find one, although that has been a month or so ago.

    I've tried your "false advertisement" trick a couple times. it's 90% fail, especially with electronics. It's worked for small gadgets here and there, but overall, it's more headache than anything.

    just my .02

    You can go to your local Verizon store and install StickEmUp on the display model Droid without anyone notice you and program it to start at 1:00 AM . The Droid will take the Incredible hostage and deliver it to your house .

    .... FAIL... you forget that the Incredible comes WITH 2.1 so it will not handle 32G cards either (until after the update) but seeing as it is also advertises as capable of 32G cards it would be the same as giving you another Droid (or ANY phone with 2.1).

    Then when they say "prove it" and you don't have a 32gb memory card what then? Or if you do get one it works perfectly fine then?

    Droid does accommodate the card, it cannot format it because of Google's 2.1 code.

    Don't bother, why would you want to downgrade anyways?

    Lol. very nice.

    I noticed the flaw in the initial argument also. If the Incredible runs 2.1, it can't support a 32GB card either....so where's the benefit? I agree that the faster processor is tempting, but I haven't seen a problem with my stock processor anyways. Besides I had enough problems with my HTC Imagio that I still don't really trust HTC again, yet.
