    Thank you for all your advice, I have indeed swapped to an edge card in place of the R4. Im really pleased, however, I have almost worn down my finger nails trying to get the sd card back out of the edge card!!! Is there a knack to this? Its virtually impossible to get it back out with out tweezers or teeth!

    thank you

    Take your fingernail and put it right under the notch of the microSD cart itself. Then you just lift up. After doing it a few times the microSD should go in and out easier.

    faster way is to use a piece of tape to use as a pull tab.

    THe above suggestions work well, yet over time it will be easier to insert/detatch the micro SD from the EDGE, it just takes some time.

    lol i did the tape trick with my sim card in samsung phones!
    for the EDGE i used to use my nails and dusting stuff came off it seemed like the sd card but it looked fine
    i think u can just grab it with ur finger tip and pull my friend and cousin does that

    people that bite thier nails don't have that option. or women with that prefer to not break a nail trying, etc.

    the tape as a pull tab is useful until the slot is worn down enough to just pull it out with pressure.
