Blackberry Storm 9500 - which memory card?

Hi all - I'm very confused... I want to get a 16 GB memory card for my new storm... BUT

 

Do I need to buy a 'Micro SDHC memory card'... or a 'SDHC memory card'... as, form what I can tell, the two are different things... (they certainly look different) with the latter being about half the price of the former... no-where I've looked (obvious or otherwise) tells me EXACTLY which one I need... :-/

 

I want to make sure I buy the right one!... so to hear from anyone thats actually gotten a memory card for a storm and can tell which one it was and that it works... would be great!

 

Cheers! :-)

Re: Blackberry Storm 9500 - which memory card?

You most definitely want a microSDHC card.  Cellphones typically use microSD (or microSDHC) cards while cameras use the SD (or SDHC) cards.  A SDHC card simply will not fit in your phone (it's far too big).

 

I've also been using SanDisk Class 6 microSDHC cards with my Storm and they've been great.  While I've only used 8GB cards, I know of one other person who got a 16GB microSD card and he's been very happy with it.

 

I hope that helps!  Feel free to ask any other questions you might have! :smileyhappy:

Hi there.

 

Does it matter what class the card is?

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Blackberry Storm 9500 - which memory card?

The Class is the read-write speed.  Class 6 is fastest, Class 2 slowest.  Class 6 is also more expensive.  I use Class 6, but in reality all should be fine.  I'd recommend Class 4 or 6 - with newer electronics, faster is always better.
