Has anyone else experienced any issues with their phones having trouble with SDHC cards in cold weather? i have two SanDisk SDHC Ultra cards (one 16GB in an E72 and a 32GB in an N8) that the phones will not read unless the phone body is warm. The problem also occurs with a normal SanDisk 32GB SDHC in an E6, so i have excluded the Ultra model as the cause. i have had no problems with 4GB cards, so i am curious about this phenomenon. i have read of no others having this issue, either. Any thoughts?
Not heard that one before but would be interested to know whether state of charge of battery has any bearing upon this as usually first issue in extreme cold.

No bearing whatsoever. If the phones are exposed to cold temperature to the point where the chassis becomes cold, the memory cards become unreadable by all three devices regardless of charge level. Once they become warm again (from body heat or being placed on warm objects), the phone recognizes the card and the information becomes available again. Super annoying, as on the E72 almost all apps, themes, etc. are stored on the memory card, and on the N8 and E6, the memory card is where all multimedia are stored (so photography and videography become hindered). Also, the E72 and E6's maps are all stored there, too, so Nokia Maps' functionality is also hurt in the cold.
And also, extreme cold is not even what i am getting here. It happens sub 50º F or 10ºC.
