Default 4GB Micro SD Support?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone happen to know if the 8300 Curve support the new 4GB SDHC Micro SD card?

Yes, it's supported!

Tried an 8GB card in my Curve and that, too, worked flawlessly.

8GB? I am so stoked!
Anyone have an idea if a 16 or even a 32 or more is possible for a MicroSD?

Mmm, an 8 GB card will turn the BlackBerry into an iPhone but better Imagine the music you can jam on that baby.

official support might be 2GB, but both the curve (8300) and vzw's worldphone bb (8830) support 4GB cards without issue.

the 4gb works great with mine, but i did have one issue. originally, i did not format it and just began adding songs, etc. it worked great, but then all of the sudden one day the phone would not recognize it. so, i formatted the card, re-added the songs, and everything seems to be working fine again.

The 8100 pearl isnt going to work with anything over 2gb. The microSD cards larger then 2gb are SDHC type cards, the 8300 and 8830 are the only current models that work with SDHC. Going forward the next pearl should have SDHC support as well.

This happened to me several times. What I learned is that I need to "Safely Remove .." before I unplug the USB especially if there is a folder/file open. That seemed to keep it from happening

Not true. With the latest Pearl OS a 4gb card will work. Check this thread out.

I tried it out myself and it works.

Does the brand mean anything? Is Transcend any different than SanDisk? Because at Amazon the price is $44 for the Transcend vs. $71.50 for SanDisk.

I read an article article on the upcoming 8820 with a "Micro SDHC slot for Flash cards of up to 32GB". Forgive my naivety, but is this to be compatible with the 8300 as well?
Cause I would just wet my pants knowing that I could have 32G on my Curve.

32gb cards wont be available anytime soon. We should see 8gb by the holiday season. They should work in any microSDHC compatible device.

Transcend is just as good of a brand. I have used many of their cards without issue.
