Do you mean MicroSD?

See threads that have discussed this. The original T-Mo phone and OS does NOT support 2GB cards. The Rogers, O2 and Vodafone do.

But there are tradeoffs in using other carrier's OS's as opposed to sticking with T-Mo.

I have T-Mo and lots of 1GB cards. I can certainly use and want a 2GB, but I am waiting until T-Mo comes out with an upgraded OS before going to 2GB cards.

You need a microSD card, miniSD will not fit!

Do you mean MicroSD? If you mean mini, many people make that mistake.

If you got a mini, you can still use it on your digital camera or other devices.

Or make an exchange for the micro, if as you say, you just got the miniSD chip.

I would think that would be impossible to make since an adapter for a micro to fit into a mini sd slot would be pretty small. Don't think it can be done. Well, I guess it could be done, but why bother?

Besides, the prices are so cheap now, adapters are becoming nonessential. I mean, 1Gb microSD chips are $25. 1GB minis are even less. And I just bought four new SanDisk Ultra 1GB SD chips for $15 each, on eBay.

eBay: SanDisk Ultra II 1 GB SD Secure Digital Memory Card 1GB (item 250048142976 end time Nov-10-06 12:56:11 PST)

At these prices, adapters don't make sense [except for the micro and mini to work on an SD device].

Well, maybe we will get to the days where memory is installed with a syringe.

What I don't like is that we have so many formats. I have Micro-Drives [IBM], compact flash, Sony memory sticks, MM, SD, MiniSD, MicroSD, etc.
