    Thanks to the new OS on the 8120, the newest Pearl can support an 8GB SD card. It works great!!! Not counting a few movies and other videos, ringtones, or 300 wallpapers, but so far I have 1124 songs on my Pearl and have room for another 3 GB! I don't think I need to waste more money replacing my MP3 player, its been replaced by my pearl!!!

    enable mass storage, and hook your device up to your pc. go to defrag utility on your PC and both the PC hard drive and your media card should show up-then click on the card and defrag it

    Works like a charm! Loving it. I've been without a good MP3 player for months, I finally got to do one of those "Put your MP3 Player on shuffle and fill this out." Believe me with the new Media Player the 8GB is def worth it!

    Now lets just hope that when the new SD cards come out that the new OS will support the bigger SD cards!

    Justyn -- what did an 8g set you back? I know when the 4g first came out they were 100 bucks! Now you can get a 2g for as low as 10-15$

    what OS are you running on your pearl? Im on OS 4.2.2 with my 8830 and it reduced my 8 gig card to 3.6 after formatting.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~4.1 gives you 2 GB, 4.2 gives you 4 GB, and 4.3 gives you 8. 8 only works on the 8130, 8120, and 8110. Upgrade's coming soon, don't worry!
