    Have you tried a cache clear in recovery? A factory reset?

    Same thing happened to me. The system stopped recognizing the SD card that had been working perfectly for 9 months. At first I was willing to hobble along, but within days I had some 50 app updates that couldn't install because there isn't enough disk space.

    By connecting to my PC I was able to recover recently created photo files before reinstalling (reformatting) the disk. Seemed to work for a day, but now I'm getting the message "Lexar SD card missing." The card hasn't gone anywhere. The phone wants to reformat to reinstall again. I'm at a loss.

    I've tried emailing the Alcatel folks (a couple of times) but I've gotten no response. If they don't check their email, I don't even know how to give them feedback that there is a problem.

    Unfortunately it will be no time at all before my onboard memory is full again with no place to expand to.

    Suggestions welcome.

    Just picked up my Idol 3 5.5" and upgraded to 6.0.1 and appear stable.
    I'm in Canada and had mine shipped from USA new and unlocked. Cheers.

    I'd argue 6.0.1 is the real garbage. I was fine with 6.0

    Have 6.0.1 on both my Idol 4, and my Idol 3. No problems on either phone. I can install quite a few apps on the SD card on both phones. Not all of them, but about 1/3 of them. Plenty of movies and pictures also.
