Media Cards

Got a Blackberry, trying to download my itunes - get message on desktop manager to activate mass media device.  Found help in forums to go to options - adv options - media card.  Do I have to buy a media card to put my songs on the blackberry?  I didn't on my last phone and never had any probs?

Thanks for the help

Re: Media Cards

A memory is supposed to be shipped with your device...it could be either 128MB/512MB. If you want to accomodate more music or other files you can buy larger media cards. Following are the max media supported by BlackBerry -


BlackBerry Device Software                         Media Card Size Limit

BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.0                         Up to 2GB

BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1                         Up to 4GB

BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2                         Up to 4GB

BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.0                         Up to 8GB
