Arrow 4gb Micro-Secure Digital Card $34

Please Login to Remove!

$34 4gb memory card


Im thinking about getting this memory card. Is $34 for a 4gb a good buy? Would my pearl v4.2.1.107 recognize the 4gb Micro-Secure Digital Card?


also, here's a 2gb card for $16.98 with free 3-day shipping.

4gb is the limit on all 4.2 devices, your pearl should have no problems. If you check the sticky at the top of the media forum, you will see a list called microSD current deals. I havent checked but $34 seems like a pretty good deal.

4GB cards should work with no issue in your Pearl. I have that I have moved from Pearl to Curve, to 88xx and back again without formatting.

Buyer beware!! In past threads about 2GB and 4GB micro sd cards there have been some that work and some that didn't! It seems there are "not so good" brands that are inexpensive so you get what you pay for and some complained about it not working on their BB.
I wouldn't worry so much about the price rather on what will work.

What 4GB microSD chip is proven to work in Pearl
