    Micro SD Questions for BB 8800

    Advertisement



    1) Are there "recommended" Manufacturer(s) for BB's or will "unmarked/generic" cards work just as well?

    2) What is the MAX recommended card (1Gb or 2Gb)?


    Let me and others know what is working best or Does it matter?

    I have a 2gb (SanDisk) in my 8830. An looking for a 4gb...

    I usually will only purchase from SanDisk, Crucial or Kingston. I've received great results from each of these manufacturers.

    Just remember that you can run across a bad batch of flash memory from any manufacturer.

    That is interesting as the Specs say it can only accept a 2gb (according to Spec sheet provided to by by a RIM employee) isnt 4gb using sdhc format? is it a 8800 or the 8830 that it is working in?

    The 4GB card will work in the 8830 for Verizon. Also if you go to SanDisk's website you'll find that they say that all the current BlackBerrys support the the SDHC cards.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~RIM was saying at the Sprint 8830 launch event in San Francisco that the sdhc capability will be good up to and including 32gb sd cards when they manage to get to that stage. I'm sure that that's farther out than the life expectancy of the 8830, but you never know.

    A very huge "Thankyou" to everyone that has posted a response so far!!!! I'm glad to learn about the SanDisk 4Gb card possibility for my 8800...I would have wasted money buying two, 2Gb cards! If anyone else has any input on this topic, please respond to this thread!!! thanks
