If having a Windows Phone is hip, carrying around a warranty with you is apparently for the unpopular crowd. That's what it seems, considering the vast majority of them come with a super-secret microSD card slot that voids your precious one-year manufacturer guarantee if it's been tampered with. The HTC Trophy, the latest WP7 phone to make its way to the US, is no exception to that rule. Indeed, the microSD slot is definitely in there -- but it's only accessible after disassembling a good portion of the back and peeling off tape that's not meant to be messed with. While we can't encourage you to swap microSD cards, make sure you get one that actually is proven to work in a Windows Phone device (a compiled list is found in More Coverage). The fact that the Trophy has a forbidden card slot ain't much of an eye-opener since its European namesake was the same way, but we can always dream, right? Just remember: venturing into the magic land of voided warranties can be exciting and adventurous, but it's not for everybody. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take the risk, head to the source link to get more information.
