I see they were being sold with Android 2.2 and with Android 2.3. Which version does yours have?

I was thinking that myself as I never got around to getting a sd card and just worked of the pads modest memory.


But I deleted a few apps to free up space thinking this might be the case and the ones I currently download do run and work just disappear when I turn it on and off again.
There's currently 6 gigs free on it that should be enough for 1 or 2 apps and definitely enough to save loads of books I would have thought.


I have ordered a 16 gig sd card today but I suspect that's not the problem but I could be wrong, thanks for the suggestion though! Happy

plus all the settings such as wifi return to default when I turn it on, I have to set up wifi everytime I turn it on.

Is there any more to the story?

Such as apps from a pirate site or "root"?

Ouch.

Thanks for adding the details. All sorts of folk post here and many won't reveal they rooted and installed some less than savory app.

Good to read that card is replaceable.

Cheers, I found a video on utube that talks you through it. Here's a link if anyone has the same problem as me.

I'll probably breaking some manufacturer warranty the minute I open it but after doing a bit of research from these Android pads are just cheaply thrown together in China and sold off cheap.

I wouldn't recommend anyone buying an Android Superpad!
