I just inserted a 1GB chip into my 8310 with nothing on it and Status ... BlackBerry Curve forum
1GB Chip = 8.3M B Free???
I just inserted a 1GB chip into my 8310 with nothing on it and Status is showing 8.6M Bytes available. No photos, no videos. 4 ring tones and 2 themes (plus factory). not a whole lot of 3rd party apps
Running v188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206)
Is this accurate?
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~every memory card is always like that. Shoot anything that holds memory is always like that. Memory cards. Devices etc. So that is accurate.
The chip does not add to the device memory. You need to copy your ring tones to your card and clear up some of the extra junk you have on your BB in order to have more working space.
Memory card is ONLY for media so even if you take out the 1 GB memory card you will still have 8.3 mb which is device memory
and maybe you have to FORMAT the SD memory card tht will do the trick
As mentioned, what you are seeing under status is not the memory of the card you inserted, but the memory built into the blackberry itself. You can choose to save files to either the blackberry device memory, or the media card. To see the media card status go to options, but choose "media card" and not "status".
