I recently bought a 2 GB card on ebay fairly cheap. Is 2 GB pretty good?? I just hate to spend a whole lot of money when my blackberry and it's SD card got stolen. So is a 2 GB card fairly good??

There's nothing different between SD cards other than their capacity.
If 2GB is enough to store your stuff, then I suppose it's good.
If you want to put 3GB worth of media on it, then it's not so good.

It all depends on how much capacity you want/need. There are many with near nothing on their 8gb card.

Also the class: Class 2, 4, or 6. Meaning the transfer rate (2Mbps, 4Mbps, or 6Mbps)

the 8gb is so cheap now, less than $40 on ebay for a Sandisk brand! Though the 16 and 32gb are not far behind

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Curve will not support anything above 8GB, right?
