    Well, today I join the blackberry community. My sprint contract is now up, and due to some issues with them I decided to change to alltel. I had no intention of getting blackberry service, but after doing some shopping for plans and phones, I fell in love with the 8330 curve, and just had to have one. So, my curve is currently on the fedex truck, scheduled to be delivered by 4:30pm today. I have a few quick questions. I am shopping for a memory card. Do I need a micro sdhc card, or some other type of card? Is one brand better than others? After doing some shopping on a few websites, I see reviews on amazon and newegg posted of people saying some cards aren't working in their phones. I really would hate being in that boat. I have been surfing this forum for 2 days now learning bout blackberry. In fact this forum helped persuade me to go blackberry rather than just voice service.

    Good morning and welcome to CB.

    Haven't heard any concerns about sd cards. If you stay with a known brand name you should be ok.

    Congrats and Welcome. I use a SanDisk 2gig card and has been fine.

    Also, just in case you didn't know, the card goes in the phone under the battery on the 8330.

    Welcome to CB! I'd get a 4gb Sandisk micro SD card. Don't know if the 8gb card is supporte. I have the 2gb and have no complaints. Other than if you have a lot of pics its a little slow viewing.
    Keep on Cracking!!!!

    I have a Sandisk 4G - works perfect, and just ordered an 8G one from ebay for 15 including postage [cheaper than the 4G one I bought from an Orange Uk store]
