Re: HTC Arrive.. disassembly

3rd times a charm (hopefully) i had to switch to chrome to see if i could post this. New to the site and was using IE9 in my earlier attempts. any way i work at a sprint service and repair location and use an HTC Arrive, recently we had a customer bring in an Arrive that was hit by an errant golf ball, we replaced it under his insurance and i had the chance to play with it before we sent it back. it was still working (except the external speaker and volume buttons and some housing damage) so when we opened it up and saw the 16 gig SD i thought "sweat i can take mine to 32gb" we tried the swap on that one with an 8gb SD that was laying around and the phone would only boot to the dialer. when we placed the 16gb SD in a usb adapter in an XP machine the computer only recognized there was a drive, it wouldn't even read the capacity. with this i can say that it will take more than a "simple" swap to make mine 32 gigs. i haven't given up yet and will keep you all posted.
