Has anyone ever switched out the SD cards in the Venue to increase memory? I'm thinking about buying an unlocked phone, since I don't want to spend 80 dollars a month for a monthly contract, but I need 32 gigabyte of memory, so I was thinking of doing what this article described and switching the SD card for a larger one. Beyond voiding the warrenty, is there any risk/downside to doing that?

To my knowledge, you have to be careful as to which kind of card you put in. You can probably be sure that a class 2 or class 4 card would work, but I would not try anything faster because it might fail.
I just purchased my DVP from Amazon Warehouse two days ago. I still have 325 days left on my warranty...so I'll tough it out until then, before I change out the MicroSD card.
Hopefully Dell will come back with another DVP, but without the qwerty. With the beautiful design that the current DVP has, I can only dream of what one would look like, that was thinner and had more storage.

I also went against my own advice, and swapped out the 8GB card for a 32GB class 4 Sandisk card. My device works perfectly AND has 29+ gigs of storage space left. I'm as happy as a clam right now!Samsung Instinct>>Instinct s30>>Samsung Moment>>HTC EVO 4G>>HTC Arrive>>Nexus S 4G>>Samsung Focus Flash>>Dell Venue Pro>>Nokia Lumia 800

Glad to hear that it went smoothly for you and that you are pleased with the result. Enjoy your DVP!!

It's not as easy a solution as Android has for their market (where it will keep track of, re-install the apps for you) but it certainly makes it easier.Samsung Instinct>>Instinct s30>>Samsung Moment>>HTC EVO 4G>>HTC Arrive>>Nexus S 4G>>Samsung Focus Flash>>Dell Venue Pro>>Nokia Lumia 800
