pls unmount sdcard before removing <<-- I DID NOT do it!
hello, newbie to forum and newbie to android phone ..sorry for the title, that's all I can think of to summarize what happened.
well, my phone is running 4.0.4, brand is not well known (it is sold under the name of Vandroid S5A), a dual sim GSM phone, with 512mb ram (or rom? dunno), a 4gb built in storage drive (but I only get 2gb? according to the graph when I go to storage) + a microSD card slot which I put my 8gb in. bought the phone around the 22nd or 23rd of december 2012. works wonderfully, cheered my kids and hubby repeatedly with the games, and helped me a lot from to stop wasting time in wandering around the house (email, internet, all available from the phone with big enough screen to properly see all without zooming).
so, this morning, my kids were playing through the games just like usual, then we went shopping. in the middle of shopping I still managed to get a few txt msgs from my parent, a few FB notifs, and even the weather program is still updating. then about 3 hours after that, during lunch time, I took the phone out to read the last txt msg which I have ignored for about 30-45 mins earlier, and there was the weird msg on the top... "please unmount sdcard before removing it" ...I didn't even touch the phone, it was in the bag. so then when I tried all the apps, they all said "app isn't installed" ....I went through settings, it seemed like everything were still there? all the folders for games and app... I googled "didn't remove sdcard but getting unmount sdcard error" and it seemed like almost everyone got their card broken... but my card is perfectly fine, readable while in the phone (read through the computer using usb).. and readable while being plugged in just as a card itself.
so where all my apps go? do I REALLY have to re download everything all over again? it'll be a pain if I do.. ugh.. could anyone kindly enlighten me of what's going on please.thank you for your time to read my post ^_^
