Removing MicroSD card

Am I the only one who can't easily remove the Media card?  I have to use tweezers. Hopefully if I get a large enough card I won't have to do it too often but it seems an awkward design.

I too used Bold for a while but mine worked quite OK!

Re: Removing MicroSD card

Re: Removing MicroSD card

This sounds dumb to do because there is a dedicated MicroSD card door but if you pull the battery door off as well as flip the door up it is easier to remove. At least it avoids the problem somewhat...

Re: Removing MicroSD card

You guys are probably removing it the wrong way. Your suppose to push it in because its a spring and then its suppose to push it out. Keep using tweezers and your BB will eventually not support SD card!!!

Re: Removing MicroSD card

Yes it does push itself out - about 1/4" - but it doesn't disengage from whatever it's connected to and it's not enough for me to grab and pull (hence the tweezers). I can't just turn the BB on its side and shake it to remove it.

Re: Removing MicroSD card

Viverant - you are right - it does give you just a bit more manoeverability.  I gather this external door to the micro SD card is an enhancement of the Bold - not to have to remove the battery.  Just not quite there yet - for my fingers anyway.
