There should be a slot under the battery... At least that's where it is on an 8320....

Orientate the card to align with the gold contacts. Open the metal retaining clip by sliding it to the left and stand the metal retaining clip vertical. Slide the card into the retaining clip and lay it over and lock it in place.
There are clips that hold the microSD card.

It is not obvious but the card slides into the metal retainer...

Once you figure this out by trying to slide the card into the metal retainer, and orientating the card so that the gold contacts are positioned correctly you sould see how it inserts.

Hope this helps...

Not a stupid question at all. The way the MicroSD card mounts presently is terrible. If you can't get it inserted by holden's instructions, take your phone back your Verizon dealer and have them show you in person. I'm sure they'd be happy to help.
