    i read a bit here Windows Phone 7 Secure Digital Card Limitations
    that windows7 phone will 'integrate' an sd card as part of the file system if it finds the sd card present right after a hard reset on first boot up.

    it says that an 'integrated' sd card will increase storage for apps etc from the 8gb on my phone to the 8+32gb on the card , which sounds good.
    however i read if you pull out an integrated sd card the wp7 phone will be virtually bricked, it will only be useful for emergency calls.

    i have wp8, i added my sd card after i setup my phone though, and the nokia storage checker sees the 8gb storage seperately from the 32gb, which i can use for photos, video & music only apparently.
    what would happen if i pulled out my sdcard? would the phone work? can i read the photos on the card on a pc?
    if i wished to 'integrate' the sdcard to the phones storage, do i need to hard reset it again? if the sdcard failed, would you be given an option to hard reset the phone or would it brick? thanks

    The link you posted about Windows Phone 7 does not apply to 8. You can pop in a card and remove it whenever you want. You can not install apps to the SD card in WP8. You can only save photos/videos/music to it.
