    Question 2GB MicroSD will not work on 8100?

    Advertisement



    I am so dissapointed that my recently purchased 2GB MicroSD will not work on this pearl. What gives, I didnt see anywhere that there was a size limit on SD cards, 1GB works fine but 2GB will not work. Am I doing something wrong?

    Yup,this is another bug that will be corrected with software updates.

    you need to download the Rogers or O2 OS. the TMO OS does not support a 2g card, only 1g

    Yes...the tmo os will not support the 2gig card. So you can either wait for a tmo update (no telling whenthat will be out) or install Rogers or o2 os.

    I installed the o2 os and have been using my 2gig card with no problem.

    Not true. I downloaded the update from T-Mobile and I can now use a 2 gig micro SD.

    2GB will only work with the updated OS. I'm currently sporting a 1GB which is plenty for me.

    yea, this thread is SUPER old. It was back when everyone had the first OS. Which was 0.42 and it only supported 1gb. All the new pearls should have the .64 that TMO is still stuck on. hehehe.
