    Hi everyone,

    My 8900 is due to arrive tomorrow. Could some of you share what accessories you love or consider must-haves? Specific brands would be helpful too.

    Also, is there room for a MicroSD card AND a regular SD card? If so, are there capacity limits on them?

    Thank you very much!

    There is a slot for the microSD ONLY. The maximum capacity depends on the OS
    you use. For the 8900 it is currently 16gb.

    The following table lists BlackBerry Device Software versions and the supported media card size.


    BlackBerry Device Software Media Card Size Limit
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.0 Up to 2 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1 Up to 4 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2 Up to 4 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2.196 Up to 8 GB per Verizon Release Notes and confirmed by users.
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.0 Up to 8 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.5.0 Up to 8 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.5.0.81 and later Up to 16 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.6.0 and later Up to 32 GB

    Only accessories I bought were the cradle for at my desk when I'm at work (sync at home, not at work), and a bigger microSD card. I don't really need or want anything else for it.

    I'm the same, charging cradle and high capacity microSD is all I wanted or needed.

    Great info. But I'm confused. Is the capacity for my 8900 running 4.6.1.315 16GB or 32GB?

    Maximum capacity is 32gb. Problem is there are no 32gb cards on the market,
    but when they are you can migrate your data quite easily.

    For me....

    * This is not specific to the 8900, but I always make sure I have no less than five 4' long micro-usb cords. I hate the shorties that come with most phones. And I use the USB car chargers and sometimes wall chargers with these cords, good for when I'm on the go- I just keep one USB charger, and usb cords for all my gizmos, rather than a bunch of clunky chargers.
    * Extra battery and travel charger (the one that charges the battery itself, not the phone)
    * Cradles- I have a few at home (home office, nightstand, kitchen), and one at work.
    * SD Card- I use 8gb
    * Screen protector
    * and of course a case...

    Always seem to have a hard time finding one of these. Do you have one you recommend?

    I got mine on eBay- from my records, looks like the seller is bestseller2628, from Hong Kong. Definitely not OEM stuff, but it comes in handy in a pinch, and I've used it pretty steadily for about 5 months, and no probs, knock on wood.
