Default Media Card

Please Login to Remove!

When attempting to record a video it tells me to insert a formatted media card. What type of card would I buy for a 8310 and where would I insert it?

Thanks

BlackBerry's take Micro SDHC cards. Some info here:

What type and size Media Card can I use in my device? - BlackBerryFAQ

You can buy the cards at BestBuy, cell phone stores, etc. Lots of people have gotten good deals on them at Amazon.com.

On the Curve, the card goes under the battery.

I have a 4GB Micro SDHC SanDisk card in mind. Check out Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! also, well worth it.

To answer your question about where to insert

I believe it is located under back cover, under the battery toward the top of the device. The larger area is for the SIM card and the smaller area is for the microSD card.

Thanks

There are instructions in the FAQ link I posted for how to insert the media card.
