I have an LG 900 G, and it will take an 8 Gig card. The secret is in the downloadable pdf manual I found online: turn the phone off, take the battery and SIM card out, put them both back along with the SD card, THEN power up the phone. The phone will (if it responds like mine) recognize the card and THEN you can format it in the phone, even if it has been formatted elsewhere. I have done this with 3 cards, and it has worked every time (I have a LOT of music ).
Also, if it ever powers itself off and won't power back on, try the same battery-SIM out/ batttery-SIM In trick. That seems to solve a host of problems with this phone.
Also, I have learned this summer to my dismay that it does NOT like heat. We have been running 110 + here in SW OK for about 15 days now, and my phone simply will NOT unlock if it gets hot on my belt, so I have had to wrap it (in its case) in a bandanna and put it in my pocket.
And Dollar General has a real neat swiveling belt case for $6.00 that is a perfect fit for it. Have had one for 2 years now, has magnetic close flap, really good spring belt clip, and hugs tight, stays out of the way.
More than ya wanted, huh? I earned "OnerousOne". Sorry. Hope it helps you out.
