Good point. Also the safer play if my wife sees the receipt. She's already rolling ... BlackBerry Pearl forum

    Good point. Also the safer play if my wife sees the receipt. She's already rolling her eyes and questioning whether I really needed to upgrade from the 7105 I bought less than a month ago. Of course I did! She's just jealous and doesn't want to admit that her RAZR sucks compared to the Pearl.

    adaming, Welcome to PinStack. Now you need to get her a Blackberry, so she will understand your obsession.

    Re: MicroSD Cards?

    Hi adam, welcome to pinstack.

    My thoughts on the 2 gig card, go ahead and buy one, and if it doesnt work bring it back. I have a Motorola i870 and I was told the 1 gig would not work, so I went and bought one, and have been using it for about a year, works fine.

    I dont like the idea of carrying two cards, so I would never buy two 1 gig cards.

    Chris, from what I've read here and elsewhere, the Pearl/8100 chokes big time when a 2 gig card is used. I think n8 has this listed.

    Unless I am using a camera, I don't carry "spare" cards. You are right in regards to the MicroSD though. That chip is so small it can get lost fast. In fact, when I was taking the above shot, the MicroSD stuck to the palm of my hand and but for my seeing it I could have dropped it on the floor and never found it.

    Yeah, big price jump from the 1gb to the 2gb.

    That's funny about the wife and the 7105. Having the 7105 less than a month is kind of extreme. Just tell her the 8100 has some ESSENTIAL, CRUCIAL and WILL-MAKE-ME-MORE-PRODUCTIVE features. [the MP3 and movie players ].

    I had the 7100t about 14 months. Always loved it and said it was the best phone I have ever had. Now, after I fell prey to the 8100's siren song, that 7100 looks like an old hag former mistress.

    Re: MicroSD Cards?

    thanks everybody for the input. I went the safe route and got a 1 GB Sandisk. Works fine. Loving my Pearl. Wife story continues: she lost her RAZR on a flight. I gave her my 2 year old BB 7100t to tide her over (I stopped using it when the keys were wearing out and there was dust behind the screen and I upgraded to a 7105). Anyway, she grudgingly admits she loves the thing. All the grief I always got for reading email while driving, and now she does it too. Of course it is only a matter of time before she demands to have her own Pearl.

    Re: MicroSD Cards?

    The NE Regional Sales Manager for RIM stopped by my work to seel the 8100 & 8703 for Tmobile. That Pearl is so small I was shocked, it has such a sharp screen it is amazing. He told me the SD max was 4GB and also that Raytheon, the largest Government contractor they have are buying them up and have dropped the camera restrictions since almost all cell phones have them now. What a beauty that Pearl is, might have to drop Nextel!

    Has anyone else experienced any added lag or "choking" with a 2 gig card used or was that long ago fixed?
