Default Memory card question

Please Login to Remove!

Hi folks. I am new BB user. I really like the thing Best phone experience I have ever had since my first motorola flip. Anyway, I have found the ability to have a few pictures and a few songs on a memory chip a nice feature, On the 8330 the chip is NOT easily removable. I don't really care about taking it out anyway.
I am trying to figure out how big a card I should stick into the phone. Right now I have one gig and after a week it is close to 75% full of stuff that I have put on it.

Is this just the "I just got a BB trend? will I continue to add stuff to it? Or will I settle down.

What size memory cards do you guy use?
What do you keep on them?
Thank you.

I have a 2 gig memory card on my blackberry and it's filled with about 1.5 gigs of songs.

Blackberrys support up to 4 GB media card.Anything above that will not work.
Just a healthy piece of info if you're considering buying another one.

You need to visit the FAQ once in a while. That information is way out of date.

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

The BlackBerry devices that have media card capabilities are from the 81xx, 83xx and 88xx series.

All of these series use a MicroSD card and have the following maximum capacities:

* BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.0
o Up to 2GB
* BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1
o Up to 4GB
* BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2
o Up to 4GB
* BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.0
o Up to and above 8GB

I have a 4 Gig card, nearly full. Wish I'd gotten the 8 Gig. It depends on what you plan to put on it. Videos can take up a lot of space.

It depends on the device OS. See post # 4 above.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

Hmm. I have a 2 GB with plenty of room. I wonder what the original poster actually has on the device.

Actually this is the second misinformation quote I've seen from you today. I believe the other was that DM4.5 was still in beta? If you're not sure of your facts, please don't try to present them as fact.

OK I ordered a 4 gig card I bought it based on price alone I did not want top spend $45. So I got a A-DATA 4GB MicroSDHC class 6 ME-001-1808 For about $18 delivered. I think 4 gig will do fine for me. I don't plan on loading it up with videos of movies to watch on a plane. Thanks for the info fellas.
