    I know that the Bold 9930 will have 8GB of Internal memory, but does anyone know if it will have a microSD card included? Or will you have to buy your own? And would it take a normal Scandisk microSD card? I'd like to add an additional 8GB microSD card (then it'd be on par with an iphone at 16GB) for me, 16GB total media card/internal would be plenty for the 2yrs I'd have the Bold 9930.

    Probably nothing definite in terms of what size microsd card they will include. Each carrier makes that decision before official release announcements. My guess is Verizon will include a 16GB microSD, usually Sandisk. They did include a 32GB card on the HTC Thunderbolt, but not sure if that will be the norm going forward.

    Sweet thanks...I'm on Sprint, and I thought it was odd if carriers did not at least put in a 8GB sandisk microSD card along with the 8GB internal one.

    Bold 9650 Blackberries from Verizon (and I believe Sprint) were pre-loaded with 2GB micro SD cards. I wouldn't expect anything larger but if they do come with a 16GB or a 32GB card I will be pleasantly surprised at the bonus. I already have a 16GB in my Bold that I can transfer if needed.

    As far as it taking your Sandisk, should be no problem. I recommend that you backup the cards contents to your PC before transferring. Then Format the card in your new BB and copy the files you want (music, pics, etc.) back onto the card into the proper directories. The new OS may have a different file structure.

    AT&T is cheap so if you do get a card it would only be a 2 gb like when I got the 9700

    I'll just transfer the 8 gb from my current phone and/or swap the 16g from my nookcolor and get a 32gb for it lol

    Hopefully Sprint isn't so cheap and puts at least an equal ammount of GB sandisk microSD card inside the Bold 99330. Like I said, 8GB internal & 8GB card would be more than perfect for me for my 2yrs of using the Bold 9930...but if Sprint does'nt put in at least a 8GB, I'll just trade out my fiance's 8GB microSD card in her style for whatever they put in the Bold 9930 LOL (just kidding, but she as of yet, not used the 8GB's for nothing more than about 50-75 pics...and my Curve 8330 has a 4GB microSD card (from a wopping ONE GB preinstalled) and I'm getting close to filling it up with about 750 or more songs lol

    Errr...ya think? LOL 40GB is pretty darn pimped up Luckily, sandisk microSD cards @ 8GB runs around $19.99 at my local Costco last time i checked. So I'd rather not have to plunk down an additional $20.00 plus the $199.00 for the Bold 9930 anyway. So hopefully Sprint will be nice and include another 8GB card. Again, dont matter anyhow, I will be picking the Bold 9930 up the day it's released with or without any extra microSD card like i'm sure 90% of the other Crackberry's on here

    I have found that buying SD cards at Amazon costs about half of what the brick and mortar stores sell them for. I have never had a problem with the quality of their product (always been genuine brand) and they have a good return policy.
    See link below for a SanDisk 16GB card for $20. 8GB cards are about $10.

    Yes, but the differance is the Bold 9650 did not have an internal media like the Bold 9930 will...didnt the Bold 9650 come out of the box 512MB memory & 2GB microSD card included? I'm just gonna be dissipointed if Sprint releases the Bold 9930 without a microSD card or just say 4GB microSD card, and yes, worse case senerio, 8GB internal media would be pretty sufficent, but man, having at least 16GB for music, vids & pics would be pretty good

    It wouldn't surprise me if some carriers did skip including a card in the box, too big a card would push up their costs and too small a card would be pointless with the internal memory also being there.

    Actually the Bold 9650 only has 32MB (yes MB) internal memory available for media so a card is almost mandatory. That being said, I also expect there to be a micro SD card of some capacity pre-installed on the new Bold models. I will also be somewhat disappointed if it is less then 8GB when I know the cost of that sized micro SD card is less than $10/ea. in bulk. However, lack of a good sized card will not prevent me from buying this new phone.

    The Bold 9650 can hold up to 32GB's...it was preinstalled with a 2GB microSD card...just hope Sprint doesn't cheap out on the Bold 9930.

    Thought I'd update this thread...T-Mobile's 9900 comes with NO card...I was pretty stunned when I realized this after receiving the phone yesterday. They have really turned out their customers with this phone, that's for sure!

    My Bell 9900 had no Micro SD card installed, I think that's the new trend instituted by RIM.

    I was pretty far off guessing they would include a 16GB after including a 32GB in the Thunderbolt. First device I've bought in a while that didn't come with at least a 2GB card. Meh

    My UK Voda BB didn't come with one either. I just used my 2gb card out of my 9700, I only really have photos on here and lots of space for that.

    The 9930 on Verizon does NOT come with a MicroSD card, unfortunately. Each carrier decides what extra accessories they are going to incloude with their model. In my case I got a belt pouch, USB cord and US (not global) charging block, but no Memory card and no headphones.

    I don't know for sure about sprint but the website (Sprint) should list included accessories on the order page.

    I just picked up a current SanDisk model micro SDHC card from ebay (16GB) for 30 bucks (factory sealed.) That's an excellent price.
