    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.

    I didn't realize that. When I read remove SIM card, I thought it meant SD card. All I did was remove the SD card and rebooted the phone. Installed the GPS app and then Powered the phone down and resinstalled my SD card. Now, the SD card is showing blank.

    Not sure if this is the issue, but the card actually clicks in. I installed my once and just slid it in not realizing I had to push a little harder until it clicked in. But if it is showing that it is there but blank, I'm not sure what the problem is.

    Still no luck. I pushed it all the way in and it clicks so I know it is in there right.

    Do you have a USB card reader? If not, I would grab one and see if your PC can read the files on it. Or try a camera and connect it to your PC.

    I went to Sprint. They had a card reader and it couldn't read the card. Sounds like the card is damaged.
