OK, I have got it apart, but haven't found the SD card yet.

Where the slider is for the USB charger, use a small screwdriver & gently prise the plasic up (with the slider open), gently work your way around to get the complete cover off.

There you will find three screws, once these are rmoved the end will come off, after which you can slide the metal case off. You can then access all the screws.

HTH, Vince

Thanks Vince!

Taking it apart just now!

Just for clarity...to take the first bit off, open the usb slider and put a screw driver in to take off the plastic from the END of the phone... then everything is easy from there.

is it possible for the microsd card to be underneath the sim card slot or inside the area with the antennae?

Update:

I've pretty much dismantled the whole thing...just need to get the screen off and I can't seem to locate teh sd card.....it might be underneath the samsung sticker?

I have two photos but don\t knoiw hwo to put them up...they are 1.5 mb in size

Right guys,

After faffing around with this...the microSD card must be located just beneath the screen..unfortunately, I am unable to check for sure because the board has connections glued on to the sides for the power, camera and volume buttons..

what a downer

HTC, and maybe Motorola, is known to use microSD card for internal storage in various phones. Samsung, on the other hand, doesn't do that normally. All the Galaxy S phones have flash chips mounted directly on the circuit board. Samsung makes those flash chips, so it makes no sense for Samsung to use someone else's microSD cards.

Nice try and thanks for giving it a go.

Here's more info on the official position from MS:

I said on an HD7 thread that I think they are just being really careful and making sure they minimise potential problems - they don't need the launch to collapse with any Apple-antenna type bad press.

I think I've decided to go for an HD7 and will probably upgrade the memory once I've used up the 16GB.

It's been done on the HD7 so we need a brave volunteer to try the same on the Omnia.

Well on the bright side at least we wont have the memory failures prominent in SD-cards Charlie Kindel spoke about.
