    MicroSD max on Verizon 8830

    Advertisement



    Can anyone confirm that the 4GB card will work? My boss just ordered one, because the rep told him it would work. Just thought I'd save him 75 bucks if it doesn't.

    Thanks!

    Re: MicroSD max on Verizon 8830

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~according to all the information I've seen on all Blackberries that support micro-SD cards, they only support micro-SD cards.

    I know that sounds a bit redundant bu micro-SD is a 16-bit technology that maxes out at 2 gig. If a device supports micro-SDHC (high capacity) then it is 32-bit technology capable of supporting 4 - 32 gb that for most intents and purposes is incomaptible with micro-SD. It will have a logo that says SDHC, not SD. If you have a micro-SDHC device you then need to find out what speed classes it supports: 2, 4, or 6. If the documentation is silent on the speedclass then you probably don't have an SDHC device and are limited to 2 gig.

    Not that this means a whole lot, but my account manager told me the 8830 will support the 4GB...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~my friend is a manager at Verizon and when I got my BB he said it would work. Also it may not mean much but a 4GB card is listed on Verizon site as accessory for 8830. I ordered one but have not received it yet supposed to pick up Wednesday I will post to let you know if it works in my 8830

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Can anyone confirm that the 8830 documentation lists micro-SDHC. If it supports 4 gig then it should also support 32gig...when they become available.

    4 Gig is the largest the 8830 will support.

    There is a user on here that posted that the 4gb card sold by Verizon would work in the 8830. (dolphinrich is the user's name)

    At my prelaunch activity for the BellMobility in Montreal they said that it was compatible up to 4G

    the 4 gig is the largest a 8830 will support, I bought a 8 gig without thinking and when I formatted it, it was reduced to an available memory of 3.6 gig. I am debating if I should return it for a 4 gig or just keep the 8 gig card just in case. Also does anyone know how to un-format a a media card?
