Default streaming video and memory cards

Please Login to Remove!

Is it recommended to purchase a memory card for the bb pearl if one wants to watch streaming video or does the bb continuously dump the "already watched streaming video" cache to prevent the memory from filling up? Any good sites for purchasing memory cards?

I don't think the SD card is involved in video streaming...never heard that, haven't seen a setting related to it on the Pearl.

But you should get one anyway:

- Storing pics in the internal memory will take up too much room and you'll have memory issues
- Storing pics on the SD card will allow you to free up 2 MB of memory on the Pearl by turning off "reserved memory" for pictures on the device
- You must have a memory card to take videos
- Memory card gives you space for MP3s and videos

The are so cheap now...Pearl will take up to 8 GB confirmed, but you can find 2, 4, 6 GB cards for very little...

As for good sites, I usually check Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!, TigerDirect.com Best Deals - Computer Parts, PC Components, Computers & Electronics, Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more, and if you have a corp discount, the pricing in verizon's store is pretty good.

By the way, MobiTV works great on the 8130. Seems to stream pretty good even in low signal areas.
