    I just ordered my BB 8300 and it should deliver on Tuesday! I want to be able to store music in it for my daliy commute and to use at the gym, but I forgot to order a memory card. Is it necessary to get one at this point, or can I live without one for a few weeks, maybe months?

    Cheers!

    I definitely plan on getting one at some point, most likely from Amazon. I usually like to wait until I have a few things on my list (books, etc.) and purchase them together to save on shipping. Can I survive for a few weeks without a memory card -- meaning can I play music, store photos, and maintain maximum BB functionality -- or do I need to get one ASAP?

    Thanks!

    If you want to play music and all that, get a memory card, as soon as...

    I would agree first thing I did when I got my BB I purchased a mini SD card
    Makes my device very versatile indeed

    I have BB 2wks now. I went one week without a memory card and then realised tht if I wanted music other than a few 30secs ringtones I wud need a memory card.
    Best would be for you to get one since you want music for your commute etc.

    Don't confuse the miniSD with the microSD. They're two different cards and the miniSD won't fit in the BB. It's a microSD. I realize it may just be a typo but would hate to have someone purchase a miniSD because they read this thread.

    I guess that's a consensus, then. Just ordered a memory card. Thanks all!

    Cheers!

    Nicely done! What size did you get, and how much did you pay? - if you don't mind me asking...

    I just bought (2) 2GB PNY micro SD cards from Comp USA for $20 each on sale. Great deal!!! Now I'm waiting for the prices to drop on the 4GB cards. I just got my BB Curve a little over a week ago and I love it!!! Loaded music, pix, videos and almost 400 contacts and info already and there's still a lot of memory left on my 2GB card.

    I read on the blackberry website that the current BB's only support up to 2G microSD cards. Has anyone tried using a 4G card in their curve? If so what brand?
