I've had my 8XT for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. I want to load more music/podcasts (for my commute to work) but I cannot figure out how to put the SD card in. I've searched around the forums here and elsewhere with no luck.
If you can't find the SD card slot, would you be able to just connect it to your computer and add them that way? Check the Windows app store and get your podcasts that way. They can even auto update when charging, if you set it for that, of course.
Agreed that it was quite the #$%@#$% to open up. But I LOVE how solid it feels when it's sealed back up. Thankfully once you put your card in, you should not have to open it back up again unless you want to change the card (I put a 32gb class 6 sandisk I bought for my OG Epic4g, so I don't plan on cracking it open again).
+1 to dorelse about using your fingernail to hold it open at the line between dark/light blue. I used a jewelers Flathead screwdriver to pry it a little with the hope that I didn't divot the plastic. Thankfully it didn't, but your mileage may vary. Expect to need a lot of force.
Unfortunately, despite the difficulty in getting the back open, I only put an old 16gb in there to load up some music for now. So once I invest in a larger, higher speed class card, I'll be wrestling with the phone again
