Motorola w490 (t-mobile) wont detect any memory card
The contacts in the phone are possibly dirty. To fix this, turn off the phone, remove the battery and clean it as follows:
Take a piece of thick paper (card stock is good). Cut a strip the width of your memory card about 4 inches long. Fold the strip in half and dip the folded end into isopropyl alcohol. Gently insert the damp card into the memory card slot (memory card removed) and with an in and out motion, clean the contacts by rubbing them with the card. Allow the slot to dry out for several minutes. Reinsert the battery and the memory card and then power up the phone. If this does not fix the issue, you may have to have the port replaced by a service shop.
