    The answer *should* be a no, since the on-board storage is NOT the same thing as the onboard memory (768megs), but will adding videos/pics/apps actually cause the phones performance to degrade?

    No...and kinda LOL!!!
    It doesn't slow down processes, but it will take time for the device to read the card when installed or on reboot. I've noticed that the newer the Berry (my last one was a 9700 w/OS 6) the less time it took to read the card.

    The only thing that degrades performance ( specially lag) is having "Enable Compression" setting enabled. If it's disabled, you should not notice any performance or battery loss.

    I'm going to guess that compression enables videos and pictures to be 'compressed' to save space, and if this is correct, then the performance issue comes from having to compress/decompress the items.

    Any further info on disabling compression? I've heard disabling improves boot up times as well

    I'd like to know, too. I just checked, and mine is enabled. Any downside to disabling it?

    Well, I just found this in my 9650's user guide:

    "Compression is designed to reduce the size of your BlackBerry device data while maintaining the integrity of that data. When compression is turned on, your device compresses all device data, including messages, contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos. You should keep compression turned on. If both compression and encryption are turned on, your device compresses device data before encrypting it." [emphasis mine]

    I wonder why RIM even gives you the option to turn it off?
