    I think the Bold will handle a 16gb card. The question is, how long will it take it to read all the stuff on there to access what you need. That's the problem that I have with big media cards but it may be because I'm doing it with the 8330 which has a lot less memory.

    Bold will take up to 32gb, if you can find a 32gb card!

    When purchasing a memory card keep in mind the class of the card... the higher the class, the faster the transfer speeds... for example my 16GB card is a Class 6 which has a 6MB/s write speed... that would definitely be something to condiser when purchasing a memory card... I haven't been able to find a 32GB MircoSD just yet... still searching!!

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Is a Class 6 a fast card? What do the classes range from?

    I'd say the class 6 card is going to be your best option, no matter the size... I haven't had any issues with my 16GB one...

    Class 2: 2 MB/s
    Class 4: 4 MB/s
    Class 6: 6 MB/s
