    The 256 is on board. You will not lose anything saved to it.

    256 mb is on a card but none of your data like apps will be lost because thats installed on your phone. media and pictures will be removed though.

    2 things here. One, yes there is 256k on board. It is for apps and generally running the phone. There is also a 256 card that ships in the 8900. That is for media. Anything you have downloaded on that card can be saved to your computer. Then you can pull the 256k card out, put in your 16 gig and reload the media files. Easiest way is you use a USB MicroSD sleeve to adapter to put the card directly in your PC. Much faster than the USB cable.

    U sure?I just opened the phone and there is a 256mb Sandisk in there.Wouldn't I have to take that out to put the 16gb in or is there a second slot I'm not seeing?
