so i'm wondering, is it a problem with the phone, or is it that tmobile has blocked the use of the memory card? if they have - is there anyway to "fix" this?
Check the options page under Device, storage: make sure Media card support is checked.
Its possible a piece of lint is stuck in the slot (get a good light and maybe a magnifying glass and have a look.
Also could be a bit of corrosion.
Either way, if you can see anything wrong (lint, corrosion, or bent pins) remove the battery first and DON'T use anything made of metal. Try a pointed toothpick and/or spray can of compressed air. Posted via BlackBerryForums.com Mobile
