How do you remove the SD Card from a Bold 9900?

I have the Curve 8520 and to remove the card, you just pop the battery cover off, and slide the card out while the phone is still on.

 

That way you can pop it into your laptop and email things to people, without having to turn the phone off.

 

How do you remove the Micro SD from the Bold 9900 please?

 

 

All the best

Simon

ps  if you had a Curve and went up to the Bold 9900 - please tell me how it felt better.... thanks.

Thanks. But unlike the cheaper Curve, where you can pop it out without switching it off completely - you have to take the battery out, essentially rebooting the phone, simply to take it out?

Or is there a quicker way?

It's only a minor "flaw" in my opinion, but wondered if this is the case.

Homzy, when you upgraded to your 9900, what did u upgrade from? I've been mulling over that and iphone 4s/5, but I think the Bold is much more flexible in its usage, ringtone setting, copying files to it, etc etc. Just intersted in your view on the device please. Many thanks.

It's not a flaw, that's the way it works on most BlackBerry devices. I think some of the Curve models have had the hot-swappable media card. The 9900 does not. It's just the way it is, same on the Torch models.

Re: How do you remove the SD Card from a Bold 9900?

My opinion is that it is a flaw.  I'm a fan of it, but coming from a cheaper model of phone that make it simple to remove something, to a phone that will have to have the entire phone rebooted, just to pop the card out, to me is a flaw.

 

If you think it is not, good for you.  You must enjoy taking the battery out.  then card, and then having to restart the phone.  Rather than just popping out the card when you need.

Re: How do you remove the SD Card from a Bold 9900?

I had Bold nd switched to 9900 since they could not fix mine, and even 9900 after 2 weeks crashed ,

One of problems is it keeps rebooting itself,speech recognition is poor,and now after reloading software it's got "net_rim_barcodelib is missing"

any idea how to get it back?

my bbm is there but can't find it also.

Sorry I have no idea, as I am yet to be a Bold user.
But that doesn't bode well for me looking at getting one!
