Which memory card should I get for mynew Bold 9900
I just got the Blackberry Bold 9900 (AT&T) and I want to increase my memory to 32GB. Im not sure which memory card to get. Im hearing about the SanDisk 32GB microSDHC Card (Class 4). I will be using the external memory for HD video and APPs. Should I get that one or is there a better one out there. Also will Class 4 be enough for my requirements or should I look for something higher.
PS: Im sorry if Im asking a question already asked here in the forum. I couldn't find an answer.

I would also warn you not to buy any microSD cards from eBay. There are many fakes being sold there. Beware of fake 32gb micro sd card on ebay!!!!!!: Community Help Boards: eBay Discussion Boards
Try a reputable site such as TigerDirect.com on Newegg.com.

Personally I like to stick to brand names I know and have used before and get them from Amazon in the largest size I can afford. You can generally get good deals from Amazon. I use a 32gb Sandisk myself(SDHC) by the way.

Sandisk is a good brand. Like the person above said, avoid ebay.
if the price difference isn't too great, i'd go to a class 6. you'll get faster transfer rates. but for what you're describing, a class 4 should be OK.

kingston class 6 user here too, 16 GB. enough for my needs ( even more than enough), decent speed and price. as the others said, try to get a class 6 one, the speed is good for hd video at least.

The higher class cards are also marked as such because they can be had in larger sizes. I would assume something marked as "class 10" in 16GB or 32GB in the cheaper price ranges are not as fast as they say, or they are total junk. On a budget I would go for quality at a "class 4" rating as apposed to junk with a high rating or high capacity. The others mentioned Sandisk and Kingston and I want to ad one to the list, "Mushkin". Mushkin is an American company and sources/builds quality stuff. Ordering through their website is easy, inexpensive, and if you want you can speak to someone who speaks English.

I have an Adata 8gig Class 4 and a Kingston 32gig Class 4. The Kingston is painfully slow! I have used it in my Canon DSLR and in my 9900 and it really slows them both down. Just to warn everybody. I have just ordered an Adata 32gig Class 10 Here:
NCIX.com - Buy ADATA 32GB microSDHC Micro Secure Digital High Capacity Class 10 Flash Card W/ SD Adapter - AData Technology - AUSDH32GCL10-RA1 - in Canada
Don't know how the price compares but these guys have great service!

I have a 9900 and I'm not going to be going around shooting movies. If it were me I would get a high end 16GB card like the Sandisk Ultra Mobile. It seems that class 6 card hits the sweet spot because class 10 is wasted on a BlackBerry. Besides, some of the better 4 & 6 cards run faster than their no name class 10 equivalents.
I'm keeping everything on the built-in storage now and only using my Sandisk class 4 for video, if I ever need it. Where else am I gonna keep the thing? In the little USB adapter Sandisk through in with the card? Brilliant little card reader BTW, stupid easy to use and super small.
