MicroSD card does not fit in Freerunner

I received my FR today and had trouble fitting the microSD card in place.

The problem is that the pins in the FR for the SD card are so high that the
flimsy little cover can't snap down over the SD card. I tried it anyway, and
put the SIM card in over the SD card to hold it in place.  I booted the
device but it never stopped "Registering...". So I removed the SD card and
now the SIM card seems to sit correctly in place (making contact on all of
its pins) so at least the device works and registers with the network
provider (T-Mobile in San Antonio, Texas).

However, I'm running without a memory card.  This is one more thing on the
list of disappointments with the FR (no complete and stable software, bad
battery life, noisy audio during calls).

Has anyone else run into this?  I know I am using the right orientation for
the card, as it's the only way the pins would line up, and the shape of the
card "kind of" matches the shape of the space where it goes.

Help, please!
