    Can anyone tell me if installing the new O.S. 4.2.2. 176 will work to recognize 6gb or 8gb micro SD cards?

    Re: 6gb Micro SD on 8830

    i have heard reports of 4 gig working and being able to use all of it. Have also heard people using the big 6 and 8 gig cards but at this time was not all recognized but should be in future os releases. so basicly your planning ahead for when you are able to take advantage of the whole thing ... Hope this helps

    Don't know about yhe 6 but I have a 4gb card and my 8830 recognizes all of it. Let us know how it goes if you do go with the 6.

    I just got a 6 gig and there is problems. If you format the card in the blackberry it ends up only giving you 1.6gb. Try using the search tool for more info....

    Try using Panasonic's SD Formatter program, this will show 5.6 of usable space, but I'm told only 3.2mb is usable.

    Re: 6gb Micro SD on 8830

    So as of right now only 4 gigs is usable? What about on the 8130? Shouldn't it handle 6?
