    will 8800 support 4GB micro SDHC? YES!

    Advertisement



    Read about this awhile back and want to see if the 4gb cards I have coming will work in my not yet received 8800's for my wife and I.

    Seemed like with the release of 4.2.2, the 4 gb cards were expected to work. Anyone using them?

    Looked like they would on BB's site and then dug deeper here and it looked like they would only see the 2 gb micro SD's.

    Thanks!!

    Mike

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Support for the 4gb - 32 gb micro SDHC card is a hardware issue, not a software or OS issue. The only blackberries that support the SDHC standard are 8300s, 8800s, and 8830s. I tested a 4 gb card in an 8830. I had to format the card while it was in the Blackberry but that's normal. It worked fine.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i also use a 4gb sdhc card in my 8830. I just popped in and go no formatting required. I bought directly from the Verizon store for 74.83 after discount. I don't know why I did not have to format maybe because verizon product. Shows 3.7 gb availble

    yeah but I've heard that the 4gb cards only work in 8300's and 8830's. Doesnt make sense that they wouldnt work in an 8800 but want to know before I open them up (then I cant return them.)

    On BB's site under compare devices it shows that both the 8830 and 8800 " This smartphone accepts microSD cards; the amount of storage is determined by card capacity."
    which is why I bought the 4gb cards. Just dont want to waste the cash if they arent going to work.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i spoke with friend of mine who works for the dreaded cingy/ att and she advised 4gb card is an accessory for the 8800. Check the blackberry website it will list compatible accessories but I have known this rep I spoke with for 10 years and has never gave me misinformation

    Cool. That's what I needed.

    BB's site only shows the 1gb as an accessory and under tech specs says:

    " This smartphone accepts microSD cards; the amount of storage is determined by card capacity."

    Thanks for the tip!!

    Is your 8800 cingy. If so I would go by the store and have them open a 4gb card while there and pop in your phone if it reads purchase if not don't. I have seen it done numerous times at my local store letting people try it before they buy saves the trouble of ringing it up and then doing a refund just a thought

    Phones are cingy but ordered everything from Amazon.com as the phones were $49 each and cards were $59 each.

    $449 for the phone at the store.

    As soon as I get them I may to run by a store and check it out.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi
    Every where I looked they are talking about Micro SD card and not MINI SD. Are they both the same size?
    I am quite prepared to shell out about Ł30- but need confirmation and I could not find it anywhere. Please help

    Nope. MiniSD is much larger than MicroSD -- hence the difference in names.

    http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-MicroS...4246355&sr=8-1

    Amazon.com

    I got mine from here and they were $59.99. Same seller.

    I'll know if they work or not on Monday when our 8800's arrive.
