Default Biggest sized Micro SD card into the 8310?

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to the Blackberry world and would like to get rid of my Ipod. I would like to buy a Micro SD card for my 8310 and would like it to be as big as possible. I have thousands of songs and hundreds of downsized photos that I would like to carry around with me.

Does anyone know the latest?

Many thanks!

Don

although i only got my BB yesterday (my friends have had theirs for quite some time) i dont think the BB would be good as a replacement to an ipod. if you want a phone that is more of a "toy" then get yourself an iphone.

I use a 4GB microSD card in my Curve. Many report no problems with larger capacity microSD cards (ie 6gb). I believe 8GB the largest currently available and it should work.

The Curve is great to use as a music player. I have 80 CD's on my 4GB card with room for photos and ringtones!

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry8700/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

Ultimately it will support up to 32 GB memory cards but that will be sometime down the road

yea, for now it only supports 4gb...i put a 6gb in there and it wouldnt read it....when i formatted my 6gb inside the BB, it formatted it as a 1.6gb card! i had to use a 3rd party application to format it back to its original size. I would assume with the 4.3 OS release it will be able to handle 6gb+ cards.

Default Thanks! What about bit rate?

Hi again;

I can't find anyone locally who sells larger than 4GB, so for now that will do. I am going to pick it up tomorrow morning.

Next question......

Is there a maximum bit rate for MP3's? I prefer the higher sound quality of 320 kbps, but I remember that one of the websites that I read before purchasing stated that (I think) the Pearl would only play songs at 128 kbps. Am I correct in remembering that? Is there a limit for the 8310? I can't seem to find it.

T-mobile told me that before the end of the year the 8Gb is coming out on the market. That can hold a lot date i.e., pictures, music, movies etc.

For now, 4GB is the biggest card confirmed to work.
