Re: Would An Old Android Phone (( NO SERVICE ))Work As an SD Card Reader ??

Umm.....I would be using an old Android phone to format the SD Card which would be put into my Hotspot (If this works) rather than wait on an SD Card reader to arrive in the mail

Does THAT answer your question ??

Cheers & 73 :D

Would An Old Android Phone (( NO SERVICE ))Work As an SD Card Reader ??

If so, I've got plenty of those (One of which I keep charged up mainly to go Periscoping while the Android phone WITH service just simply provides the bandwidth (As it would for my Jumbospot clone when I get a new SD CARD for it as I think it's probably got an UNBRANDED card in it IF it even has one...

From there, I SHOULD (??) be bale to flash one of the MMDVM images to the card As a side note - These devices should REALLY be...
