A couple of times I have pointed out to people who have bad phones and bad replacements that the issue could be their SD cards.
SD cards today are made CHEAPLY. It sounds like you have a bad SD card, if you are going to replace it yourself I'd advise purchasing a class 6 sd card to replace it.
You can try putting the SD card into a computer and backing up your data, then format it on the computer and try it in your phone again. I'm betting dollars to donuts that the SD card is the root of many of your problems.
Well ran all night on a fresh card no issues and called cs and my replacement 16gb card will be here tomorrow ...I can't say the instore help is worth a flip but I give phone support a grade A for always helping and not hesitating to replace equipment. So hey people for fun pull your card and see how performance differs its been a good night gb and a faster sd card make a difference
I seem to remember Motorola running into a shortage of the class 4 16gb cards and putting class 2's in some X's. I'm wondering if those Class 2 victims might be the same people who are having so many issues with their X.
You are right about stores having issues replacing the SD cards, I think it has more to do with them simply not having those in their stock. I do know phone support will indeed send out replacements for the SD card and battery if you suspect those to be at fault.
Is the class indicated on the cards I didn't look when I pulled it out ...I got my phone during the fiasco lol when the incredible and x had delays on shipping but was early october when I got it ..once it went bad I couldn't mount unmount format or close the notification had to remove card to resolve this but not surprised if a bad batch has led to issues for people if so it doesn't matter how Verizon patches with updates only new cards will get it done
If you look at the card itself on the right upper corner there is a 4 with a circle around it.
It should look something like this picture.
Provided the Manufacturer likely won't be the same.
I've been looking at a 32GB class 10 for my next phone. They run about $70 now, maybe down to $60 by the time I buy.
