    Totally false. If it's in a common format (ie, FAT 16) -- many devices can read/write to it. If it's a proprietary format -- then only devices that can read/write that format will be able to read/write to it, but any device could format it and then write on it as long as you dont' mind losing data. However, propriety formats are few and far between.

    Well, I want to put this sd card, with all my data, into my S2 when I get it this Friday. Will I be able to retain my data from 1 phone to another? Is anybody going to tell me that I need a computer, which I'm sorely lacking? Please?
