    Go to Options > Media Card and press the menu key. Select Format card and your done.

    It's not necessary, but I recommend it to eliminate the slight risk that the card could have come with stuff you don't want preinstalled.

    I agree with Jeff on that point as well. Better to format it than run the risk that something is going to be installed from the card on your BB that you don't need. Once formatted, you then know only what you choose to load on the card will be there. No surprises!

    You really don't want to format it on a pc using the phone as the reader per se.
    However, when it is done, format the card using the phone.

    The pc uses its own format, while the phone has a different format.
