Upgrading Memory on US Verizon Trophy
Quickly got my Verizon Trophy after watching the Win 7 wave roll across the world and other carriers. I was quick to grab my certified SanDisk 32GB microsd and head in for the upgrade.
We in the US seem to have a 16GB standard internal card compared to the European 8GB (USA! USA! USA!). The triumph was short lived though. Everything seemed to look exactly like the international versions and I followed to a successful insertion (giddy giddy).
On boot, I received the "Welcome to Verizon" screen and was prompted for a "Get Started." Elated! This quickly sputtered to a stall though and I ended with a "HTC" white welcome screen and nothing else.
Did a hard factory reboot a number of times and went back in and changed the card a few times. I could get back to the 16GB but the 32 would always stall with the HTC welcome screen and never progress.
The phone is back to the shipping 16 but battered and bruised from so many cracks and groans of the prying update fingernails.
Has anyone successfully upgraded the Verizon to 32GB or am I the loan loser? Could the hard watch Verizon has with the CDMA network allow them to better monitor us pesky upgraders???
