    I got my 8900 last night. I got everything set up and good to go excpet for replacing the memory card with a larger one. The one included is only 265 mb, I need to put in my 16gb one in but can't get the old one out! Is there a special way to I should be attempting to remove it?

    Look closely at the card that is in the device... there is a little notch on the one side with a small little ketch that stops it from coming out... you need to move that out a little bit then pull on the SD card.

    Awesome you got 16GB sdhc..

    I hope you have long nails. Ha ha

    you have to use two hands. one hand just loose it ( not hard, please) and another hand's finger pull card out of slot. thats easy way. I am not good at direction. ha

    Hope this help..

    Is it possible that I didn't get a memory card with purchase???

    I got a brand new sealed package from Rogers AT&T Canada... There was no 256mb card, but it had 256mb internal memory?

    I bought a 4gig card for dirt cheap as I read somewhere the curve has some speed issues when accesssing mem cards above 8gigs?

    The Rogers branded 8900 did not come with the 256 SD card. However, the T-mobile ones did.
