    Is 32gb the biggest? If not what size and what brand should be used?

    SanDisk has just released a 200gb micro SD card and it is the largest that I have seen so far. I currently use a 128gb SanDisk micro SD card in my Z30, so theoretically you should be able to use a 200gb if you jut have to have the biggest one.

    BlackBerry states that the Passport is capable of supporting a 128GB microSD card.

    That's what I have in my Passport.

    I feel that manufacturers simply state the largest available at any given moment. If there was a 512mb available, most phones would support it.

    That indeed seems to be the case. I remember the Q10 only supported up to 32 gigs, however cards with 64 and more gigs work as well.

    I believe the Passport is spec'd at 128 GB max and the Z30 at 64 gb max, but I haven't pushed it. I run 64 GB in both.

    A Wireless Wave employee told me that the larger cards use more battery power or generate more heat, but I don't understand why that would be the case, except perhaps during indexing, which would take longer with more content to index...in theory.

    I think it is hot swappable. You should be able to just swap cards. If you want the stuff on the old card to be on the new card, you could pull the old one, use a computer to swap old content to new card, install new card. Should work like a charm.

    Doesn't this assume that you have not encrypted your SD card? If you encrypted the SD in one device, it is not hot swappable. If encrypted, you can connect through BlackBerry Link and transfer files to hard drive and then format SD for new device and load pictures/videos/files etc on it.

    This is correct. You can simply transfer everything to your computer with encryption on as long as you are logged in to the BlackBerry with the proper password. If, on the other hand you wanted to hot swap you would have to decrypt the SD card portion of the package first, not the phone itself.

    Yes. Good call. I had forgotten about that.

    That said, if I encrypt my SD card in my Z30 with a password and use the same password on my Passport, can it not be read in both?
