    I've read that in order to upgrade to a 32gb card that "cloning" all the files on the factory card is necessary, and that some of those files are in "hidden" folders. How do I accomplish this upgrade and make sure all the needed files are included ? Thanks.

    I just mounted the phone using USB, selected all, and then copied it to my 32GB card. I don't remember if my XP asked me about hidden folders, but it is a straight copy.

    The OS, or any apps, will recreate whatever files they need to store on the SD card.

    Which 32GB card did you purchase, may I ask? I would like to buy one I know will be compatible with the D2G.

    I bought the Sandisk 32GB from Verizon, which was cheap at the time, with my corporate discount. I also bought the same card from another vendor (don't remember which!).

    This card is class 2, and I was looking for a better one (in my previous phones I had a 16GB class 6). However, the only one I found was a class 4 with a bad review, showing that it performed slower than the Sandisk. The conclusion is that Sandisk are very conservative with their speed claims, whereas others are not.

    Beware when searching: a lot of searches (for something like microSDHC 32GB) will turn up cards that use two 16GB microSDHC. Not very useful as you can only put one in the phone!
