    So a BlackBerry Passport accesses a 256gb microSDHC card? Why don't they advertise that?

    I checked SanDisk, Kingston and Lexar. None of them show above 128GB capacity for microSDXC on their websites.

    I also heard the Passport supports 256 GB micro SD but haven't seen the documented specs either

    SanDisk has 200GB microSDs. MicroSDs with 256GB do not exist yet.

    I tend to look at what the CrackBerry's shop suggests, it suggested a 128GB card so it's fine !

    I missed it.

    For what it's worth SanDisk makes it difficult on their website to browse by capacity. They are shipping 200GB microSDXC card in their Ultra line. Amazon shows it as available for shipping.

    I stuck a 64GB micro SD formatted differently in my Q10 when it was still running 10.2.1 and it just reformatted it for me so that it would work.

    Also with some additional software, it's easy to change storage formats. I recently formatted an external HDD that is 1TB to FAT32 so that I could plus it into my PS3. No issues.

    Posted from my Q10 via the power of "Q"

    Edit:
    I love stretching the limits of FAT lol

    Flicked via the BlackBerry Keyboard on my S5

    Technically, FAT32 isn't supposed to be for anything over 32GiB. Right now the bb10 phones format a 64GiB card also FAT32. 128 might work, but you're really stretching the limits of FAT.

    I purchased a $10 128GB MicroSD. At first it would not read it and could not format it either. I formated it exFat on my Win10 PC at default allocation and reinserted it. When I tried to format the card it said it needed to download drivers, which it did, and then, after formatting the card I have 124GB Available on my Z10 100-3 with 10.3.2.876 OS and 10.3.2.799 radio. WOO HOO!!

    I ordered one too. I can't believe we can have a 128Go SDCARD for that price. Hope everything will work.

    I can confirm that a 128 GB Micro SD works with a BlackBerry Leap running 10.3.2.2339

    As someone said above, the theoretical maximum is around 2TB but that's all dependent on software. Just make sure it's formatted to exFat

    Can it be formatted to exFat on the phone or does it have to be done on a computer?
    If the computer, will formatting in the phone after undo the exFat?

    Typically 64GB and larger cards come formatted exFAT and the first time a card of that capacity is inserted in a BB10 phone the phone downloads the exFAT file system driver so it can read the card.

    After that the BB10 phone can format exFAT.

    Of course your phone has to be on BB10 v 10.3.1.x or higher.

    The SD card must be formatted on the Computer..

    With regards to formatting it again on the phone, I don't think it would change the FAT system but since I've never done it I'm not 100% sure what will happen.

    Those look like fake cards. MicroSD HC is only up to 32g. 128g should be a MicroSD XC card. Your card my be reporting 128g available, but If the card you purchased (like the ones pictured in your link) says HC, then you should try actually putting over 32g on it and see what happens. This is a common scam happening now with high capacity cards.

    Unfortunately people who are unaware of the difference between SC, HC, XC or even the "IO"will easily be fooled by these types of scams. HC only goes up to 32 GB so if your card says 64GB + HC then you have been scammed

    The one I ordered from the same site says it is xc. But we shall see once it gets in. For the price, if it is a con I can deal with the lose.

    I ordered the card for $10 with the same skepticism, but for $10 I would give it a look see. It took about 10 days to receive the card via USPS from what looks like Korea. I inserted the card and initially my exoerience is as I described earlier, and after performing the steps as I outlined, the card does now display Device Storage: 6.8 GB of 16 GB used ~ Media Card: 16.7 GB of 124.9 GB used. The card says MicroSD HC 128GB. (I own another 32 GB card that I bought on newegg in June of 2012 for $22 (1 x ADATA 32GB Class 4 Micro SDHC Flash Card with V3 USB Reader (Red) Model AUSDH32GCL4-RM3RDRD) it also was showing the 16.7GB used of (maybe) 28GB.

    After reading your posts regarding the usability of the card I decided to give it a test. I had copied the 16.7GB of data to the card inserted into my pc. When I looked at the device details in the same storage settings the 16.7GB was shown as "Other", not Pictures or Music. When I tried to access the pictures the "scanning device" message was across the top of the screen. I erased and formatted the card only to still see the 16.7GB being stored on the card. Problem

    I removed the card and then restarted the device. It still reported 16.7 GB but when I erased and formatted the card it now show 2MB of 124.9GB used. I plugged the phone via USB into the PC and then copied the same files and directories to the device (letting the Z10 do the writing) and while the initial transfer rate was around 100KB/s it eventuall sped up to an average tranfer rate around 1MB/s. The additional data being stored was immediately being reported by the storage settings, and I am able to see the pictures fro the appropraite apps.

    So I am reporting that I had some issues that I am presently working through, but my Z10 formatted the card exFat 128GB with 124.9GB usable that I am presently using only 0.8GB, but it's working. SCAM or no SCAM, I am reporting my experience. I did read the article that was sited, and I didn't find any references to any SCAM, relative to misrepresenting labels or capacities, or how my device would see the card as 128GB capable so that it would then format and write to it. We shall see, and I will continue to report my experience.

    For those who don;t have any actual evidence other than specs to question what will happen when more than 32GB are addressed, I would suggest buying one and trying it for yourselves, because even if what you SAY is true, at $10, a 32GB MicroSD HC is still a great buy! LOL

    Stay tuned!

    Calvin, the link is for an explanation of HC and XC, not intended to explain the scam. Sorry for the confusion. From what I have read, these fake cards run into a problem when you try to READ back data that is stored over 32g, and that it sometimes appears the WRITE without displaying an error. I'm just writing this to warn people - no offense intended. Also, there are fake 256g cards that have the same EXACT graphics as some of those in your link. There ARE NO 256g cards even in existence - only 200g at this time. Obvious fakes. They even showed up on Amazon.com, but appear to have been pulled.

    I'm not sure I understand completely the results of your test. Are you saying that you have successfully wrote, and read back, over 32g? Please keep us posted. I understand they are cheap and you might not care if it turns out to work only at 32g (or possible even only 16), but just trying to save time and money for the next guy who really has little use for a 16g card at any price.
    Please let us know how things turn out with yours.

    So far so good. I can try to get above the 32GB line, but with the transfer rate it is very time consuming. I will report later.
