Despite all the warnings, we know that many of you are likely going to upgrade the memory on your Samsung Focus. Here’s a brief video that outlines the steps to upgrading the storage memory by installing a microSD card. The card used in this particular video was a SanDisk 32GB bulk-packaging microSD that was priced at roughly $90 with tax, shipping at Amazon. Note: It’s technically a class-2 card, while the Samsung approved card is a class-4. Since this card was purchased from Amazon, we’re covered by their 30-day return policy. If you are not sure about the card you are purchasing, we advise that you check with the retailer to make sure they accept returns. It’s still early, but there haven’t been any issues. Should we encounter any problems, I’ll update this article accordingly.
UPDATE: I’ve started to see some real major issues. The device will revert back to a stock install. Upon restarting the phone, it would go through the start up phase. Upon entering my Windows Live ID, it then remembered some of my previous setup. Some tiles on the homescreen sent missing where I had initially setup mail accounts. All of my music was still there. At this point, I’d be real cautious about adding a card that’s lower than a Class 4 and be sure they have a great return policy.
