I have owned this phone since February 2013. The first micro SD card problem was with the first system update, less than 2 months after I got this new phone. All data was lost and the card was completely destroyed, not even able to be reformatted. Since Verizon had not been saving my photos, etc. because they were in the middle of their own updates, nothing could be recovered! The second card was destroyed by the phone about 6 months ago, with some data recoverable but only because it was on my computer. Verizon's new Cloud backup saves things, but will not let you access them to actually recover what was on the card or the phone! Tonight the third card was semi-fried by this phone! In each of the two previous cases, the phone was turned on but asleep because it wasn't actively being used. Tonight, I had picked up the phone to check the weather forecast and I could see that it was "pulsing." I don't know how else to describe it-pictures pulsed! Then suddenly my card was not connected. I have turned the phone off and on several times, done a system reboot, pulled the card to reseat it, pulled it to see if the computer could recognize it, etc. It is recognized and can be reformatted according to the computer, but all data/pictures are destroyed yet again! I have not yet tried to reformat it to see if it really can be done or if the card is again completely destroyed. This has to be a known problem with Motorola as there are posts all over the internet in every Android forum that exists-and not just with this particular phone, but it seems with all of their Android phones. Of course, nothing is admitted and so those of us stuck with their garbage phones just keep losing our data and having to re-buy SD cards. I cannot wait for this contract to be up so I can replace this piece of garbage with anything but a Motorola phone; I swear I will never waste my money on another Motorola!
