    Where you haven't checked is exactly where it goes.

    Of course... you never ever add or remove memory with the power on... that's why they put it under the battery...

    Good tutorial on doing this:

    I've pulled the media card in and out of both of my BBs with no issues. Why turn the power off?

    At the least I suppose nothing could happen. Next you could corrupt the data if by chance something was writing to the media. Worst case could be to fry the card or the bb if it happened to not seat properly. I've done the same with other phones and lived to talk but have heard others whine about now useless parts.

    Guess I live on the cautious side.

    I hope that pertains to the Curve only, because the sheer fact that the memory access is so...accessible on the Pearl I never turn power off *gasp*.

    I used to to do it all the time with my pearl, kinda miss it actually. with the curve you have to take out the battery and wait.....and wait...for it to come back up.

    If your blackberry is running OS 4.5 then yes.

    MWAIN1990:
    It is probably the same as the Pearl whereas the system memory is separate from the external memory (card). It isn't like a boost by inserting it, however the sheer nature of having a card will increase performance by being able to put files (ringtones, music, saved text messages, etc.) on it rather than on the device's internal memory.

    Hope that helps
