We just love our new T-Mobile G2 phone, but figuring out how to remove or replace the micro SD card is darn near impossible. The little diagram sticker label on the SD storage card holder makes it look as though you just need to flip the holder up to remove the SD card from the G-2, but it’s not quite that simple. In fact, trying to simply flip up the SD card holder on the G2 doesn’t work, and the more you try to pry it up, the more it seems as if perhaps you might break it – it clearly doesn’t simply pop up. Here is the secret…
First, you need to remove the back of the phone. The way you do this is not as intuitive as it may seem, mostly because for just about all other cell phones, you have to pry the back off. But not with the G2. With the G2, there is actually a nice sliding latch (nice going, HTC!):

See that label? Doesn’t it look like that SD card and SD card holder should just flip up?
Here’s the secret…you have to put the slightest bit of pressure on the SD card and holder, and gently slide it forward (towards the end of the phone) just the slightest bit:
…and that will cause the SD card holder to unlatch, and spring up… SPROING!
NOW you can flip the SD card holder all the way up, so that it looks like the picture in the label on the SD card holder:
To close the SD card holder, just reverse the process. Flip the SD card holder back down, and gently press on it so that you can slide it into place (away from the end of the phone):
And that’s all there is to it!
If you are reading this, and have read this far, you probably have a G2 phone. How do you like it?
