if you are talking about your internal memory i would highly advise against that, it might be safe but im fairly certain it isnt, now you could turn the external sd into a flashable drive and use the vibrant just to store it but you are better off just buying a cheap 15 dollar thumbdrive from your local electronics store. IMO much safer and less chance of hurting your vibrant.

I download programs to my Vibrant for storage all the time--Just make sure you do NOT un-zip them while on the phone.

It is perfectly safe so long as you don't try to flash it on the phone lol ....I use it as a flash drive all the time aswell.

He's not talking about making it a storage drive. He's talking about messing with embrace and partitioning/formatting stuff, like making a USB windows 7 install drive, or w USB Ubuntu livecd which will mess up your phone trying to do that.
