Alright, as I can see from many of the posts here and elsewhere, many of us are experiencing one version of frustration or another with the 'Bolt.
Here is the short version of mine. I just received a CLNR device today which was Verizons latest attempt to solve my never ending search for a reliable and consistent data connecion. I followed the instructions, moved my SD and SIM cards over and booted up the phone. Problem now is that the replacement phone does not "see" any of the apps that are on the SD card. It knows it is there, I can send other apps to it and they show up on the SD card list. But nothing that is on the card from my original phone is visible. I am sure that I am missing something simple here but what do I need to do to get to my apps?
I took both cards out of the refurb and put them back in the original and everything on the card is accessible there.

Try transferring everything on your SD card to your computer, and then reformat the SD card (this will whipe it clean) and then add everything again.
