    I've got the stock card in my phone and when I look at used vs available it says 14gb for both although I think I have media stored in it..The reason I say think is because Astro shows 2 folders for sd storage. 1 is sd and 1 is external sd. I have data on both that shows up when I explore.
    Does the card use 2gb of the just for format?
    Was it formatted when I bought the phone like my Inc was?
    Is it not showing a difference because I've only got a couple hundred mbs used? On my Inc it showed a difference from the first time I put any media on it.
    Thank you

    With Astro "sdcard" is your phone's built-in memory. "ext_sd" is your memory card.

    Does the card use 2gb of the just for format? A certain amount of space is used by the Operating System and the bloatware that comes preinstalled.

    Was it formatted when I bought the phone like my Inc was? Yes

    Is it not showing a difference because I've only got a couple hundred mbs used? ?????? It should be showing a difference.

    On my phone Astro doesn't have an "ext _sd" folder. Just an "sdcard" folder, of which is my external card

    Normal:
    your 16gb card is actually 15,927,345,152 bits divide that by 1024 , but because of the way it is calculated, you have to divide the result again by 1024 and then once more. You will end up with 14.83. Depending on your card, I've seen anywhere between 14.2 and 15gb.

    Thank you.
    I suspected that in the bloatware being embedded in the card as well as the phone, just not that much. I now see why they put a 16gb vs the 2gb that came with my Inc.
    Weird how it's not showing any difference but the data is there.
    Thank you again.
