Default 8gb MicroSD with 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Ive been itching to get one, but I keep finding different information as to whether its compatible or not. Can anyone tell me from experience if its compatible with the Curve, specifically the 8310.

Thanx

It is fully compatible with the Curve, if you have OS 4.5

this might a reason for me to switch over to the 4.5 version, but I don't know if I want to take the pludge yet.

Nick is right, OS 4.3+ = 8gb.

OS 4.5 will allow for 8gb and larger.

Dude.

The $35 one with the Mobile Mate carrier is cool.. instant flash drive the size of a fingernail.

this card for 35 bucks can you trust that its not a fake? i also am interested in a 8gb and i was looking at Newegg and it will be like 43 bucks. but if the one for 35 is legit i will buy that one. On another subject these are class 4 and my 4gb is class 6 will the slower memory be worse for the blackberry reading it?

It will update just fine to 4.5. I went from 4.2 to 4.5.0.37 to 4.5.0.55 with no problems....Update man it's well worth it.
