Default What size SD card are you using?

Please Login to Remove!

My Bold is on its way and I want to get an SD card but wasn't sure what the recommended size is. Anyone know?

Well, go for gold. I think the largest Micro SDHC you can get is 8GB right now. I know the 16GB and 32GB are not far behind.

8GB on 8820 ... currently loaded with hundreds of MP3 tunes, with a lot more free space available . . . great music player without a need for iTunes...

Additionally, I can squeeze a movie it for my Out-of-Town flights...

I have a 4G card in my 8320-I have about 200 pics, a couple of videos and about 150 songs, and still have almost 2G free.

I've got a 2 gig card leftover from my old BlackJack, so that's what I'll be using for now. Planning to get an 8 gig at some point maybe.

I'm using a 4G card with lots of room to spare. That 2G should serve you well.

Default Media card

I own the 16BG card - bought it from Amazon for $66. I have about 1,000 songs on it, plus over 2,000 pictures and five movies. And I still have 7BG left!

I would say buy the max capacity (16GB) that's out there. No point buying a smaller card now only to run out of space later. You will keep wanting to add stuff and having the bigger card is the best way to go.

I had a 2GB card that was too small for my liking [put it in a adapter and put my Wii], so I got a 4GB in my Bold now and have a 16GB from Amazon on the way. Amazon 16GB card was only $68....

The Bold runs so smooth I think a 16GB card will be a great addition, I can't wait for it to get here and load it up!!!!
