SD card HOT and unusable

When I got my Droid, it came with a 16gb sd card. A couple weeks ago, after yet another reboot (I have to do this 7-10 times a day as it loses all connection if I don't), the sd card stopped working. It said it needed reformatted, I did so, a million times. It still says there is 'no sd card' inserted. I have unmounted, mounted, reformatted many times, even on my pc. It still says there is not one inserted. Oh and whenever I put it in the phone and take it out, it is HOT, like bad, the whole sd slot is. I tried a different card (a 4gb) that I had and it did the same thing. I took it to the Verizon store and was told they have heard of this but never seen it and they would sell me a new one for $40. Are you shittin me? I am not paying for a new one when I had one come with the phone. What else can I do? Im ready to freak... cant use the camera without sd or most apps, having to reboot 7-10 times a day is already a pain in the arse... and to top it all off, now I cant access any browser, google, or links. If there is a link from fb, I get the error that page not avail, if I search in google, same error, dont even try browser, goes straight to page not avail. UHG...

that does sound like a hardware issue.  have they offered you a replacement Charge?  I have never heard of the SDCard being hot, but I know you can buy them fairly cheap online.

No they did not fix or offer to fix or replace the Charge. Might have to go to a different store. The lady said it was prob the SD card, but if the slot where the card is to go gets that hot when a card is in it, I can't imagine its good for the phone.

so an instore techie told you this?  hogwash.  call up VZW, and talk to their tech support.  they are always friendly, helpful, and very quick to resolve your problems.
