    Media Cards? Which one? Please Help!!

    Advertisement



    I hate to sound like a big dummy but I am needing to know something. I am new pretty much to the media storage cards for the blackberry 8300 (att). I am wanting to purchase one but I have no idea what brand, kind, etc? Can someone help me or lead me in the right way? Basically tell me what I need to buy and what I don't want/need?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well you do know that the card size is "Micro" right, depending on what you will be doing with it matters a bit, will you be taking alot of pictures, storing lots of music, as stated a 4g is the max it can handle without problems; but will you need a card that size?

    I have a 2gb media card and it works flawlessly, I've forgotten who makes it and I'll edit this when I do (I'm tethered...) I've got close to 20 songs and have saved probably around 50 pictures, plus around 30 ringtones and the card says I've only used .1gb. Good luck.

    WOW! Well, I will be using it for pics, ringtones, videos and more. I am cool with the 4GB one but which brand is better? Or are they all about the same?

    Also, I didn't know I needed a micro, so thanks for that tip! I am telling you I know NOTHING about this! HE HE!

    I think sandisk is the popular brand, but most cards should work with no issues. You need a MicroSD card. Others have already touched on capacity.

    Size of media card the BB can handle is determined by the OS version installed on the BB


    4.2.0-up to 2GB
    4.2.1-up to 4GB
    4.2.2-up to 4GB
    4.3 and higher-up to 8GB

    Here is a link to the RIM site where this info is found

    get the 8gig.....although you are on 4.2 - your BB will still read the first 4 gigs on the card. When the ATT 4.5 update is out in a few weeks your BB will then read all 8 gigs. Just get the 8 now so you do not have to buy another media card.
