My HTC Desire S is working fine when I don't put my micro SD card in it (this card was free with the phone). But the phone keeps restarting every few minutes if I keep the memory card in it. By that, I could say that the phone is fine, but the issue can be either with the memory card or the phone not supporting memory card anymore. The phone and memory card worked completely fine for 8 months.
The thing is, if the same memory card is inserted in any other mobile, be it an Android or any other smartphone, that phone will not restart and the data is completely readable too. So, the memory card is fine. When I insert some other memory card on my phone, then my phone does not restart too. So that means the issue is with my phone & that particular memory card combo.
I am ready to uninstall each and every app from my phone, but will that solve my problem? Should I perform the factory reset? Will it solve my issue? What will I lose if will do the factory reset? Like: contacts, SMS, call logs, APN settings, etc. Any free software to backup all these?
But maybe I am going in the wrong direction. Maybe there is some easy way to get the phone and memory card working.
