    It would depend on the OS the device is running, Options>About> 3rd line down i.e.
    v4.2.2.180 is a TMO Curve.

    V4.2.x.x will got up to 4 gig, you have to have v4.3.x.x to go up to 8 if memory serves, I am triyng to find the listing for it no on RIM site

    Is there a free 4.3 OS upgrade with the 8830? If so where would I get this?

    Perhaps the 8GB will work in the unit but only if it was formatted outside the unit or via USB?
    (as in the BB OS can't format it but anything else can)

    Can someone verify that it will read & write to the 8GB card in an 8320 (with 4.2.2) if it was formatted elsewhere?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I am using a Sandisk SDHC 8GB right now. I am running OS 4.5.18. I formatted the card in my phone and transferred the files via USB using drag and drop with windows explorer. I still have 2.6 GB free. Everything seems to be fine although it did take awhile for the media player to scan all the files the first time.

    I just received my 8gb microSD and put it immediately in my VZW 8330 without formatting or anything and it is working great- 7.9gb free. Woooohoooo! Ok, now what? Oh how the excitment was so short-lived.lol

    yea I have a curve with a sandisk 8GB SDHC as well, working just fine. great USB transfer speeds! 16MBps write and 15MBps read. I ran the tests a few times and got those, strangely with read being a bit slower. But fast!

    I wish all phones were like the Curve and Pearl in this respect. On other phones, having a larger capacity card just makes the pain of transfer more apparent.

    Let's all hope that by the time 4.5 is officially released, 16GB cards are supported (they are due soon). ;-)

    I have a 4gb but waiting for the 16gb card as that will be so much fun. All that music and films on my beautiful bb.
