I got a 2gb SD card and inserted it to the ppc-6700 phone after buying the phone brand new from sprint. It worked at first, then about 10 minutes later it locked up the phone. It does not allow for any buttom to be active or even receive calls. Nothing works. The only thing I can do is remove the SD card and then it works. What can cause this? Is the phone a defect or the SD card? What would you advise or what can be a solution. Have you heard of this problem with the phone.
This is a common problem with the PPC6700. It is not your SD card. It is the phone trying to read from the SD slot and the card may be temporarily missing. This is due to the fact that the card does not "lock" in the cardslot properly. What i've done to fix my ppc from locking up (forever ago and I've not had the problem since) is put a piece of tape over the slot to secure the card.
I haven't had a problem since I've applied the tape and can't even tell I put the tape there anyway.

First, stop using Internet Explorer - use Chrome or Firefox, but thats not really relevant.. Check your connection settings in Internet Explorer, Tools, Options, Internet Options, Connections and remove the dial-up settings and configure your LAN settings as needed
hard reset the phone - do this by syncing first, then hard reset the phone by:
1 taking out the battery,
2 then reinserting WHILE holding down the send and end buttons. 3 then re-sync your info back on and...voila!
You need to connect an SD card reader to your computer and pull the card from the PPC-6700, copy the contents to a directory on your hard drive and then remove that card from the reader, insert the new card and copy the content of the directory you just copied the old card to the new card. That is all you need to do.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information or for other questions.
Press both the right and left softkeys on the front of the phone while you are pressing the 'soft' reset button on the bottom of the phone. Press Y and then the space bar, let the phone reset and follow prompts, after 3 seconds, it will install the sprint software. I recommend a soft reset after that. Sync, and you're ready to go again!
