    I feel sick. I hope someone can help.

    I followed these instructions to try and fix my GPS issue. When I reinstalled my SD card and rebooted my phone, my phone is showing the SD card is blank. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!
    If you would like to speed up the GPS lock and connection time on the Galaxy SII...

    Try this...

    Settings > Location and security > ensure the the 3 boxes under My location are ticked.

    Now download and install, free from the Market, GPS Status.

    Remove the sim card from your phone and reboot it.

    Open GPS Status (preferably outdoors with a clear view of the sky) and select Menu > Tools > Manage A-GPS state > Reset

    Now select Menu > Tools > Manage A-GPS state > Download

    Now just leave it for as long as it takes to get a solid lock on at least 6 Sat's (preferably more... 9->11 would be good). This can take 20 min's or more but be patient,

    When you have achieved this then select GPS Status Menu > Settings > GPS & Sensors > Auto-download AGPS data > choose how often you would like the data to be updated (1 hour -> 3 days... I have mine set for 6 hours) > tick the 3 boxes (GPS required/Lock to GPS speed/Filter the GPS speed, if required) and choose your Sensor filtering.

    Now power off your phone and replace Sim card and reboot.

    N.B. Please ensure you have no Task Managers or anything that will close or interfere with this app.

    Once rebooted you should find an improvement in accuracy and speed of your GPS.

    For starters, you should make sure you're following directions for the correct device, or all sorts of weird things can happen. The directions you posted are for the Galaxy SII, posting in the Epic 4g (a Galaxy S). We only have two checkboxes, and NO sim card.
    I can see where maybe you've removed the SD card thinking it was the Sim card. With it removed, it's not going to show anything.
    The other side of this coin is if you do have a GSII, than you really should post this question in the proper forum, where the most knowledge of your device will be centered.

    OK. Here's hoping someone over there can shed some more light on the issue for you

    For starters let's make sure it's actually empty and not just the device not reading it. Do you have a card adapter so you can plug it into your pc without being in the phone? If so do that and see if your content is or is not on the card.
