Default Largest MicroSD card?

Please Login to Remove!

The BBF FAQs notwithstanding, can I use an 8GB MicroSD card in my 8330? Thanks.

When RIM (or Sprint) releases OS 4.6 for the 8330 it should then be able to handle 16 GB cards. Yummy!

MicroSDHC simply refers to microSD cards 4GB or larger.

TXLady is correct. The HC stands for High Capacity which is any card 4GB or higher.

I have been wondering this same thing. There is a local computer store that has the 16gb at like half the cheapest price u can get them any where else. Just didn't wanna waste the money if I can't even use it in my curve. I currently have a 4gb in it but I am in need of more already.
