    Hey guys!

    I have a 1520.3, with an SD card inserted. Have it in there since I got this phone back in October with no issues.

    Now all of a sudden randomly throughout the day I'll get the message I would if I was to just pull it out. "About Removing SD Card...."

    I took the card out today and reseated it, thinking it would help, but just now as I was sitting down playing guitar, my phone was laying on a table and it message popped up again!

    Wondering if anyone else has had this issue before and if they managed to fix it. I could always remove the SD card, but its nice to be able to say "I have 90GB of storage on my phone" (with onboard storage included)

    Any help would be great!

    When you took the card out, did you follow the "remove SD card" procedure in Storage Sense?

    You could try this: First go to settings/backup and do a backup (make sure "apps+settings" is on). Then, go to settings/storage sense. Tap on your SD card and scroll to the bottom where there is two options; 'Remove SD card' and 'Format SD card'. Try the "Remove SD card" one first, hit the button and it will tell you that you can now remove the card. Do that, then re-seat the card again. See if the problem re-occurs... if it does, you may want to do the second option, which is "re-formatting the SD card". This should clear up the issue, and if you were smart and did the backup, you'll be able to re-download all your apps and their respective settings.

    Hmmm, that's a good idea. Last night I moved all my apps to my phone and off my SD card. No issues since. Im thinking its a failing card, or now that you mentioned it reformatting could work. When I removed it last night, I turned the phone off before I removed it. Figured that was my best option
