    Hi, ive had my bb curve for a while, but just started getting into modding it out. I have t mobile. and updated my phone today, got a few new apps. One of them being a video recorder. However, it wont let me use it without a media card. Do i need one? If so, where can i get one? Wall mart?

    clipjoint, welcome to the stacks

    you can get one at walmart, office depot, radio shack, best buy, the list goes on

    make sure you buy a MICRO sd card ... 1gb is less than 10$ im sure by now...
    i bought a 2gb from wally world awhile back and it was $20

    Cool....im assuming the tiny slot above the sim card is for the media card? Will that enable me to download video, or better yet....watch video on my phone?

    The new 4.5 OS upgrade from TMO should be able to bring up Youtube. I can get it on mine. Make sure that you have your tcp setting to wap.voicestream.com under options/advanced options I believe.

    I don't think you need the card to watch videos, but you need it to save video and to record. Yes, it is the small slot by the simcard.

    You are correct, that tiny slot above the SIM card is where the Micro SD card will go.

    The sd card is used to store music, pictures, videos, ringtones. You use your desktop manager to add it to the card. When you get your card and put it in for the first time, you should format it. Do that by going to options and simcard and then click format card.

    I am assuming you have a data plan with TMO? You need that to surf over the phone.
