    So I got a Samsung EVO 64GB card, brand new, and just got my N4. I put it in, restart, etc...and it's just not recognizing it. When I goto "storage," at the bottom it says "Insert SD card".
    Am I missing something? Is there something I need to do with it first?

    No, you shouldn't have to do anything with the card prior to putting it in the phone. Do you have the ability to check the card with a computer to see if it will read the card?

    I dont...and I dont have another card to check the phone. Maybe I should just take it into Verizon and have them take alook. Everything else seems fine.

    Yes, that sounds like your best alternative. Could just be a bad card, but better play it safe and check it with your carrier in case it is the phone.

    Took it to the vzw store. Their SD card worked. So it must've been the card. Sent that one back and ordered a new one.
    Thanka

    It also depends on how big the card is... Anything over 32GB you may have to format (FAT32?) on a computer before you install on the phone...

    exFAT I think is the preferred type.

    Wait.. So the 64gb replacement card I ordered won't work either? I don't have a computer with a card slot. Not sure what to do now

    Just format it in the phone, it'll be fine. I usually run a format in the phone when I install a new card but that's not really necessary with a brand new card, it just makes me feel better to do it and it's become habit.

    And,unmount the SD card before removing it if you ever need to remove it.

    Oh OK. I thought I had to to it in a computer first.
    Awesome news is that I ordered it at 7pm from amazon on Friday and it will be here on Sunday with prime.
    Love Sunday amazon delivery now :-)
