    Has anyone used an 8GB MicroSDHC card with their 8320 yet? I think I remember reading somewhere that using that size card requires the new OS but I'm not sure. Just thought I would ask the best group of fans out there!

    Thanks,
    Duane

    You need OS 4.3 for the Blackberry to recognize the full 8 GB. So far, the only BB's I've heard of shipping with 4.3 are the new Pearls. They'll handle the 8 GB cards.

    You could use it, but it won't recognized it as 8Gig card, only 4 G since that is the limitation of current OS.

    So if I got an 8gb card, I could use it as a 4gb card until the OS update? I have not purchased a card yet and it would be nice to only buy one.

    BlackBerry has attempted to coordinate their version numbering system and it works great, until they change something.

    They are two different programs. One is installed on your PC computer, the other goes on your device.

    A new T-Mobile Curve comes with v4.2.2.180 and that is the best choice for your device.

    You can check it by going to Options > About. Third line down is your installed version.

    There is no point in doing a minor version update, but there are important enhancement expected in future version.

    A new OS will be big news around here, no worries about missing out.

    It was said earlier up the thread that the expected time for the new OS was in April. Now i'm guess that means April of 2009 correct? I just bought a T-mobil 8320 also a few weeks ago and bought a 8gig card and only seeing 3.5 being available.

    I am using the 8320 with an 8GB Micro SDHC card and it works great. I am showing 7.6GB with 86.7 MB free. I am running 4.5.0.55 OS. I am assuming T-Mo will be releasing their new OS very soon but hey who knows.

    There are beta versions of the OS that people have been using even if they are not supported by their carrier.

    He's using the newest beta version of the OS. If he has any trouble with it, he's on his own - a risk many of us take to get the newest features. Sometimes there will be problems with these versions. RIM issues them to testers to use and find the "bugs" so they can be fixed before release to the carriers. Sometimes (always) the betas find their way to the internet when one or two testers secretly post them on a file transfer site. TMobile uses the 4.2.2.180 because it has been thouroghly tested and found to be stable for use with their devices. It wouldn't be very good for business if they put out phones people had to fiddle with to make them work properly . You shouldn't start thinking about upgrading your OS until/unless you are comfortable messing around with the way your BB works.

    Exelant, thanks for the message. I am going to take your advice and just stick with the OS that i currently have. (4.2.2.180) I don't really want any OS on the phone that's buggy. Thanks again for the message.

    When you finally do upgrade your Bberry to OS 4.5, be sure to copy all that is on your media card and re-format it. Otherwise, you will run into issues.

    The latest "beta' 4.5s like 4.5.0.55 work great, no bugs. 4.5 enables the 8320 to handle sdcards higher thatn 4gigs. My 8gig sdhc card works awesome with 4.5.0.55 . For 40$ on ebay you cant beat it and if youre a media user I highly recommend taking the plunge!

    Try removing the card from the BB, put it in a card reader
    and format it on your PC.

    If you are having problems formatting your card, try this utility from Panasonic:

    Sorry, I can't post URLs. Just Google "panasonic sd card formatter" and it will be the first link.

    People who use SDHC cards with the Nintendo DS have said this formatter is the best since it formats the cards to the SD spec. Windows doesn't.
