Question Memory Card

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I just bought a memory card for my bb pearl and I am wondering exactly what I can and should keep on it? I'm fairly new to BB and I only just found out that I can't put applications on it... which is what I bought it with the intent to use it for (not that it really matters, I have it now and I'm sure it'll be good to have, lol)
So can I only put like pictures and movies on it?
And how to I get the pictures already stored on my devise moved to the memory card?

Thanks

I think this question has been brought up already. If you have that many pictures on the device phone memory, your phone will start loosing data. You can forward the pictures from the phone memory to yourself using email and then copy them back to the memory card. Then you may want to delete the photos from the device memory.

Let us know how your doing...

Sorry for bringing up the question again, I thought I searched for it but I've come up with a lot of questions lately and have been all over the form...!

I guess my bigger question, is, however, what CAN i put on the memory card to keep it from taking up space on the phone? I seem to have trouble keeping it at a decent memory even with NO third party apps, a few pictures, etc.

thanks for the info on transferring the pictures

I have a lot of users who have 8310's and no memory cards. I get calls weekly with issues of dropped email and calendar items missing. Even with a few pictures on the camera memory it is not worth losing data. Keep all your video's, ringtones, pics and now even data if your using 4.5 OS and the docs to go application on the microSD.

You should try to preserve your phone memory for just that - the phone.

I just ordered an 8gb microSD to put all my music, pics and data on off *mazon for under $25.00 delivered. My 2gb is full. If I can get a 16gb to work on the newer phones, I will get that microSD card once the newer phones become available and the price comes down on them.

Remember to check out the memory primer that is posted on this site. It has valuable info on how to tune your phone to increase memory.

The only things that you can out there and access are ringtones, music and photos. You can store all sorts of other files, however, you cannot access them.

Actually, now with DocumentsToGo, you can place .doc, .xls and .ppt (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) files on your Media Card and access them through the respective DocumentsToGo applications.

Likewise for Acrobat PDF files are viewable from the Media Card with BeamBerry.
