    I would try a different SD card before assuming that the SD card slot on the phone is defective.

    Formatted the card, updated to Denim with Preview for Developers, no problems yet here...let's see if it keeps working today. It seemed to recognize the card when I pop it in after I formatted it.

    The phone crapped out again today. After I loaded everything on the memory card, the phone wouldn't recognize it so I had to take it out. I looked on Microsoft's website with the IMEI number and the phone isn't in warranty apparently. I'm trying to return it with the ebay seller but he's being testy. Worse comes to worse, HOW or WHERE do I get this phone repaired??? I think the memory card reader in this phone is *BAD*. I can't find anywhere online that will fix this phone,.

    Have you contacted the seller of the phone? You might want to ask him or her for a refund or if possible a replacement. I'm sorry about this issue.

    If you can't the last resort is to visit a Microsoft store and have the card slot replaced. It'll come with a fee as you stated it's out of warranty but that's the only thing that could make the phone work normal or my first suggestion.

    Good luck. Hopefully you'd come to a conclusion.

    I've contacted the seller but I just get the runaround.

    Update: I physically touched and pressed the outside of the SD Card tray while the SD Card is in the phone, and that's where it loses connectivity. I think it's possible that something is lose where the tray is. As long as I don't touch the SD Card tray or shake the phone enough it seems to work fine. I wonder if this can be repaired somehow.

    How long have you had the phone? You don't have to deal with the seller on Ebay at all if he is being uncooperative. You can open a case in Ebay and likely get a full refund, and the seller will be responsible for the shipping.
