BlackBerry Accessory Roundup: Enter to Win a SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card

This Week's Featured Item: SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card

SanDisk microSD

With all the flashy accessories out there now, the importance of an SD card is sometimes overlooked. Whether it is music, videos, pictures, or all your personal documents, these cards let us take all of our favorite data with us everywhere. Most BlackBerry devices do come with an SD card, but its usually 2GB or less - and for most of us thats just is not enough. The SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card will take care of that problem.

The SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card is a great solution for your media needs. On average it can store around 4,000 of your favorite songs, or 10,000-14,000 pictures. This is 8 times the capacity of the standard SD card that is included in most BlackBerry devices. The more storage you have the better. Using a memory card will keep all of your media files off of the device memory, allowing your device more free space for applications, and helping it to run better. Some users can get by with a small 2GB card, but if you want to maximize your storage, you really can't go wrong with 16GB (or even 8GB most times). 

Overall a 16GB sd card is a must for most BlackBerry users. The high capacity will meet even the most hardcore users needs. Personally I have been using the SanDisk 16GB card for almost 8 months, and it has met all of my media needs. SDHC cards are compatible with most late model BlackBerry smartphones. You can pick it up at the CrackBerry Store for $59.95, a fair price for the amount of storage you get, and length of time this card will last.

BlackBerry Accessory Roundup: Enter to Win a SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card



My Bold 9700 came with a 2GB micro SDHC card, and well needless to say its hard living with such limited space. I would love to improve my storage space to 16GB so I could extended the amount of music and podcast around at anyone time.

I mean who doesn't need 16 gigs?? I will finally be able to throw that non-song finding POS ipod that i have in to the drawer with the rest of the obsolete electronics and I could use my 9700 for everything!!!

i've got a ridiculous amount of pictures. i'm always the person taking snapshots of friends or family or strange people or anything that catches my eye wherever i am or whenever it is... would be pretty awesome to have all of them on my blackberry all the time and have the slideshow app i downloaded randomly flash them on my screen every few seconds, or be able to show and email someone i haven't seen in a while that 'weird shot i took of them last year at that random bar in whatever town'.

I am planning on filling it up with pictures of my newborn daughter. Seriously! Have you see her...she's the most adorable baby you've ever seen. In fact, I'm going to need two 16GB SanDisk cards:)

I mean who doesn't need 16 gigs? I will be able to throw that non-song finding ipod into the drawer with the rest of my obsolete electronics!!!

My storm 9530 went missing for a day and it was returned to me. Too bad someone took my 8gb card before giving it back. Having only 1gb of memory on my phone is so limited. This would definitely solve my problems. Plus I never win in these contests so if there was ever a time for me to get my first would be now! HA!

Thanks! As u were....

Ps. I can't wait to load up some movies and half my music collection =)

Sweet...I could use one of these to hold more pics of my wife and kids and more music too. I wouldn't mind winning one of these!!

I just joined the site - I followed the Crackberry blog when I had a Curve a few years ago, but getting a Storm 2 in the mail tomorrow, thought I'd sign up :)

What I would do with 16GB:

2GB: Kindle books
4GB: Free for miscellaneous storage / not have to carry a thumb drive
9GB: Music!

As a nanny to 18 month old twins my 8 gig is completely full of media for them, music for my 11 year old daughter and my own PodTrapper podcasts. I defiantly need more space so I don't have to waste so much time transferring new content for old. My kids love the music and videos but 8 gigs is just not enough, especially considering how many videos and pictures I take of them.:-)

i would put movies on it for my daughter to watch in the car on long road trips to grandma and granpas that we make twice a month.

she gets so bored just sitting there in the car and this would not only be helpful for her bordem but helpful for me and my wifes sanity during the trip.

hope i win!


I use my BlackBerry for everything. It's my iPod, it's my digital camera, and it's my briefcase. My small memory card cannot satisfy my media hunger and 16GB of space would be heaven...Please CrackBerry!

the included 256 on my 8900 was ok for a while but then I've upgraded to 8gb since. Being able to have more storage for items that sync via SugarSync would be a good use of the extra space.

In the event the zombie apocalypse strikes us, my iPod touch would be rendered useless due to the bright screen and need to have it exposed to use it, therefore giving away my position and attracting the zombies to me.

With this large SD card, I could sync my music to my BlackBerry and then use the media player in nearly complete darkness due to the physical controls of the BlackBerry Bold 9700. I'd like to survive and not become one of the shamblers, so a nice big SD card would be a much welcomed entertainment tool when the zombies strike.

Who really couldn't use more storage? I know That I sure could. And from a trusted brand to boot, not one of those questionable ones! Hope I'm a winner!

I use mine for music, video's, pictures, and documents. I also created a special folder to keep 1 copy of a DM backup. I don't store anything on the blackberry itself. I could use a 16gig card, so that I can hold more music and files. Its one of the reasons I switched from iphone to blackberry. Just makes life much more easier.

Would love to win this 16gig, more space for me to work! Thanks.

Please help me to improve my memory. It just ain't what it used to be what with filling it up with music, events and life's memories. With it, I can hold on to all those wonderful events of times past.

memory is crucial to the well being of our devices. music pictures apps everything! my 2 GB is no longer cutting it! help please

I need this card, just got the new Guitar Studio app and need more room for all of my tabs and such. I also will need that extra space for my business docs, photos and videos.

Hi-res pics, my whole music collection and videos, it would be perfect to store it all on one SD card

I'm currently a double major, art (photography) biology(premed) and having a 16GB card would allow me to store all of my photos where ever I go without having to carry extra storage devices. I have well over 10k pictures and growing and the size of each image is growing significantly with the expansion of mega-pixels.

Sure need one of these on my storm....have to take pics at work and email them to customers..need more storage

I handle all the phones for my company and we have over 10 locations. It's handy if I can carry things with me like a copy of Blackberry Desktop Manager, various updates for device software, software for other phones our company uses, and the list goes on. I often have to update or maintain phones on-the-road, and some extra storage would really help save me some time!

Since my car got broken into and my 4 year old iPod stolen, I've been using my Bold 9000 as my mp3 player when I workout or hike. But, I only have a 2GB card.

I was thinking of buying another iPod (8Gb nano?), but, with a 16GB card, who needs it??

I've completely filled my 8GB card with movies for my kids.
I have a daughter going thru some medical issues and she loves watching movies on my Storm while waiting in doctors offices. Anything to expand the library would be awesome!

I use this card to store videos and music to entertain my little girl while we're out and about. She's becoming addicted at the early age of three years old. My fingers are crossed.

currently have 2GB, would love to have this as it will be my IPOD replacement... I take a lot of pictures. With this I'd be able to store all of my music and videos in it, so i wont have to carry extra devices with me at all times

I just went back to the Bold from an iPhone 8GB. Please pick me, as I need suitable storage for my music/photos/video (I can record video again!)

i use my blackberry as my a camera, so the 1gb i have doesnt allow me enough room. i have to either sync the pictures out to allow more space, or delete some =( if i need space in that instance. so 16gb would give me PLENTY of room. please gift to me

it would be nice to have a extra mirco sd..i have one which i move between 3 berries, good luck to everyone

I love having movies on my BlackBerry to watch while waiting for stuff. 16 GB would certainly let me have more selection on board than my current 2GB card!

a nice compact 16Gb microSD would enable me to finally put this curs'd iPod down for good. Please, help me kill this damned thing!!!!

So, on Saturday my phone was STOLEN at my work by some bratty college freshmen living in the dorms! Not only do I not have a phone, I have no music which I used to listen to on my blackberry, but also my memory card that was in it is now gone (it was 2GB, it worked for what i needed). But the chance to get this memory card would be GREAT so i could finally put my ENTIRE iTunes library on my new blackberry via Mac Blackberry Desktop Manager!!!!

Thanks :) :(

yes please my 2gb isn't just enough i have all my music pictures and a few movies for my son it keeps him quiet in the car hehe and since i have the car charger he can watch it but the 2gb just isn't enough i can only fit 1 movie and it's full with this would really make it much easier to go places :) thx and good luck to all....

That would help so much. I use my 8900 for everything. It's my music player, my airplane entertainment, it records the important moments in my life. I'd love to not have to worry about space.

Wow, never need to worry about using higher resolution for photos, or how much music I want to store. Sign me up!

I was just thinking how much this would simplify my life over the weekend by being able to store more music and movies for business trips... saving me from pulling out the laptop and killing it's battery on entertainment...

This would totally improve my life. No more lost flash drives, why? Because I could carry all the files/music/vids I ever wanted on this 16gb microsd card! Please choose me?? I have never won ANYTHING and this would really make my week/month! Thanks!

I'm the Blackberry guru in the group of people I know. So when ever they have a question they ask me, send me a pic, or I down load a file and send it to them. I am also a music lover and part of my job is to drive around delivering car parts so I go through tons of music and podcasts to make my day less monotonous as possible. I love taking pics and video everywhere I go so having large storage is great to have. Especially when you meet up with people you haven't seen in awhile and get to use your BB as a digital photo album. There are so many good reasons I would use and appreciate winning this! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway Crackberry Team!

I would love to have a new MicroSD Card. I currently have a 4GB one in my Blackberry Curve 8330, but I use it for everything from pictures to videos to music. I don't own an iPod, so I use my Blackberry as my primary music player, but I'm running out of room on my 4GB card.

I have a 8gb now on my curve 8530 and I am constantly deleting files, mp3's to make more room. 8GB is not enought.

I use my BB as a portable MP3 player while doing chores. This would definitely allow me to listen to more of my favorite music whilst doing them.

My current 4GB card is holds a lot, but I keep adding music, and just last night, I added videos. AC/DC was in concert, and I recorded a few 30 second videos of their awesome show. If I had a larger card, I would have recorded a bit more and taken more pictures.

I frequently take pictures of my goat, and I am constantly running out of room on my current card to store all the pictures.

I also take video of the goat to show my friends, and we all know that goat videos take up A LOT of space.

And I record my voice notes so my goat can hear soothing sounds of me just in case my voice goes out sometime.

Sooo.... I need this card to keep my goat happy.

I like to keep lots of songs and documents loaded on my device at all times, so the addition of a 16GB microSDHC card would seem only too natural for my Blackberry Tour.

This would be really nice to win. Thanks for giving us the chance. My 2g card is PACKED and I could definitely use this.

Well one could always use more space may it be for high-resolution pictures or even loading full movies on your BlackBerry this would be put to good use.

I own a Bold 9000 and I'm always snapping pics and saving documents for school, owning a 16GB microSDHC would help a lot, as I also like to have songs on my phone but I don't keep a lot so I will have some memory to spare.

Well one could always use more space may it be for high-resolution pictures or even loading full movies on your BlackBerry this would be put to good use.

Make sure when you are looking for new SDHC cards that you insure that you get at least a class 4 or preferably class 6 rated card. The faster the card (higher class) the faster the transfer rate. This is even more important with the greater capacity cards. Also remember to back up your card to prevent data loss on a regular basis. Go BB.

If I had this size memory card then I would have double the memory I have now making it so I wouldn't have to worry about storage on my blackberry smartphone.

Please select me and I will let you know where to mail me the 16gb microSD card. All that I can store on a 16gb card.

Please and thank you.


This would really help me out because you can never have enough storage space! This would mean more music, pictures and other files right on my blackberry :D

If I'm fortunate enough to win this media card, I will tell everybody I know what a wonderful web page is!!

I always have to go through my card and delete pictures and songs to make room for new. It would be great to have that much storage. Much better than the 2gb one I have.

I work for a company that builds control systems for remote Oil and Natural Gas wells. That means that part of my time is spent out in some of the most desolate locations of the country. My BlackBerry comes in handy when someone needs to email me a firmware upgrade or I need to send out logs to Tech Support. When I'm not on-site, I'm constantly going through documents, pdfs and pictures from Marketing on new ideas of products we develop. Having more storage comes in handy with the huge amounts of data going through my BlackBerry.

I could finally fit all my music onto this and do away with the iPod and Apple altogether, and that'd be nice.

I have on in my berry already. I have a ton of music stored on it. I would love to win one for my wife's berry.

I travel, ALOT, adn having the ability to just plug a usb cable into a computer, and pull up my stored docs, programs, and transportable apps (read portable apps) without having to lug about a laptop, would be great. Plus on the bb, I can use docs to go, and other apps, to modify while on the plane.

This would enable me to put more tunes on my phone instead of having to listen to the same song twice in one day

This might be a great way to listen to a big part of my iTunes collection. Just purchased my Nuforce NE-7M in-ears with mic!

I could definitely use this to store the mass amounts of music I store on my device as it doubles as an MP3 player.

Pick me!

Having 16gb of storage would help immensely as I travel quite a bit for work and would like to carry as many music, movies, and pictures as possible to entertain me while on flights.

I can't have enough redundancy. I have to have backups of backups of my backups. The 16GB SanDisk MicroSD card will complete my collection of media types for backed up stuff.

I have a lot of videos/cartoons, songs and pictures, two kids under 3 years of age. I need the storage space to keep all the cartoons etc. them quiet when we are on the road. They just love my Blackberry Bold. This freebie is mine.

I'm reaching my limit on my 8GB SD card and would love to have the extra space mainly, for more music, videos, and photos. Keeps me from having to buy a PMP; just something else to carry around.

Oh, I NEED this card. hahaha! Yes, I'm constantly deleting songs on my 8GB card to make room for pics etc. I need a bigger card, but the $$ are keeping me from getting one.

what does 16GB means to me?

More MP3s
More saved podcasts
More random file to take home from the office
More recorded videos and pictures of life's little moments
More berry fun!!!

Honestly, it would be great for the music I could keep with me. I do send and receive quite a few documents from my BB and take pics as well, but primarily it would be for the tunes. No more need for the iPod or a flash drive sounds fantastic!

This could be a great way to keep myself entertain with my blackberry more often as I currently only have a 1GB sandisk memory card which quite honestly can't handled all the shows, movies, clips, pictures, and music that I want to have on my blackberry. With the benefit of the SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card; me and my kids could be more entertained when spending time with each other. Especially when shopping with the kids this would give me more memory to add more episodes of my kids favorite shows.

Thank you, CrackBerry!

The first way it would help would be to hold more of my music collection. However, since I have kids, it would also be extremely useful to hold more video for those times when we're stuck somewhere and need something to entertain the munchkins! :)

It would help me store all my pictures and videos I take and I wouldnt have to worry about it filling up!

I would use this to hold more music to listen to on the road or at work when not listening to the Crackberry Podcast. Id also load videos on there to play when traveling. I have lots of pictures I could store more of. And I would be able to hold more documents than my 8GB card has now.

I am thinking of buying one of these cards in the CrackBerry store here soon but would love to win one.

My Bold 9700 is the ultimate smart phone, now I need the ultimate memory card to hold my life - all my songs, films and pictures I need when away from home/

will come much closer to fitting on my blackberry with the 16G microSD card. My clickwheel iPod is about to die. I need to replace it.

As a graphic designer I am always inspired by things that i see when i am out and about. I need a large capacity memory card to help me capture all of these images that inspire me.

What would I do with one of those beauties?? WOW?!?! Seriously? What wouldn't I do. I would have lots of room for pictures and ringtones.

Sandisk is an amazing company that makes lots of memory cards. I have their memory stick pro duo's for my digital camera.

My app memory is like 24 mb on my Bold 9000 and my device memory is like 55 mb due to all the videos and pictures I have saved.

This microSDHC card would be amazing to win because it would really allow me to utilize my phone fully and I can save a lot of tv shows and movies.

There are so many reason including more music, more pictures, less cleaning of the memory, etc. But the main reason it's that I will kick all my friends as**s ;oD. Good luck to all!

a 16 GB card would help me be able to listen to music while working without having to stream music via the internet i have about 10 GB of music so my card i have now is full already.

Don't really need 16 gb of space. But it'd be nice to have on hand in case I need to transfer files, or need extra memory for my camera.

yeah, im a picture taker hog.
i snap pictures wherever I go, whether it be something i need to get next time im at a certain store, if its family events, and pictures from family and friends, i keep it all.
i could keep more!
count me in CB!

i would love to win this! i take videos and pics ALL the time and with this, i would never ever worry about running out of space! Pick me kevin! :)

Between all of my MP3s and movie files, my 8 GB card filled up very quickly. Having double the space would definitely help me pass my time on my various travels.

A 16gb card would be a vast improvement over the measly 2gig card I was given. I have a bunch of photos and music downloads that are near to maxing out the small card. Here's hoping that this time the results are different than all the other prize giveaways that always come up short for me.

Well, besides the obvious movies, music, and docs... I also use my BlackBerry Bold as a portable HD.. I transfer information from My computer, work computer, friends computer, etc. And I even use my Bold to download Desktop Applications when I'm on the go.. Yes, they don't execute on the BB but, they will download to the MicroSD so that I can transfer to my PC later. .... My 8GB is suffocating already!

I have a 4gb card in mine, but having the ability to store that much more music and some vids too would be pretty awesome.

I'm having to cut back on my Podtrapper because my card is full. I have to take pics of vin plates for work and I'm outta space. Crackberry hook me up!!!!

My Blackberry Tour has almost completely replaced my 8GB iPod Nano. I listen to and watch a lot of Podcasts which previously would not fit on my iPod without removing my music. Now I have my iPod for music and my Blackberry for video. I want to use my Blackberry for everything, and this would seal the deal.

This would be fantastic for me! i have a lot of music and i dont have space for it. and i use documents to go a lot to see my files! this is just perfect for me ;)

It would be nice to put what is on my iPod on to this card. Then I would really just need one device, not two.

Once upon a time, I had a lowly 8gb mp3 player, but more recently, it's moved on to greener pastures. Since I already carry my Blackberry everywhere, it's been delegated as a replacement for my mp3 player. 16 gigs of space to store all my music in would not only set my music collection free again, but I could still use all the extra space for storage for carrying home various documents from work and school. And everyone knows that a Blackberry is always better stuffed full of music and documents!

I'd love to win the ScanDisk card to go with my new Storm 2....can't have too many disks for storage.

This would really help out with the dilemma I have right now. I currently carry around my blackberry, another cell phone and an ipod. This would help me eliminate the ipod from the must carry around list and allow me to carry even MORE songs and store even more pictures on it.


A 16gig Micro SD card would be awesome, because it would allow me to have all my music on my phone and avoid carrying my ipod. Rather stick to just my RIM product.

I'm using my Bold for Geocaching with TrekBuddy, so I carry lots bitmapped maps with me (actually nearly 4 GB as I only own a 4 GB Memory Card). So I would love to win one so I can carry some more maps to the fields and woods :)


My ipod touch just recently decided to take a dive into some water in my car and the screen decided being black was the best way of working lol... I'm not just saying this, but I absolutely hate apple because they like to rip ppl off. Therefore, I am not buying another touch and my blackberry has become my #1 source for media. I only have a 2 gb media card and a 16 gb would be the perfect replacement as that was the size of my ipod touch

Definitely can use this. I keep movies on my BB for my daughter to watch, and it's becoming a chore swapping new movies out every 2 or 3 days. More storage would allow me to do this task once a week.

I could use this large microSD card so that I can put even more music on my phone! It will help get me out of the vile clutches of Apple.

This would actually change my life, I've been dying for more space ever since I got my blackberry! Here's to hoping!

PPTs and DOCs with images add up over time. As do 3 hour video files and the occasional .exe file (just for storage and portability purposes). Crackberry podcasts, too, of course!

I use Blackberry my bold as a mp3 player and 16gb is just perfect to put all my music on it.

Note: my poor 2gb media card is about to get overload

A new microSD card would allow me to store all of the pictures and songs I want on my Blackberry Tour. Right now, I can't even fit most of my music collection on my phone, let alone my photos.

I use my berry for everything from the camera to document work projects to a mp3 player. And the 4GB card is just not enough. I am constantly removing and adding different size cards just to make it through some days. And since work won't pay for a larger card, this would be my answer to it all.

I would love to win this. It would let me hold a lot more of my music and photos which would be...awesome!

Yes, I would love to win that 16 gb SD! So I can finally throw out my iPod and only need my new bold 9700!!

Iove my Storm 9550 and nothin' beats having everything I need on one device when I'm out and about. I'm not an audiophile but I love great SQ in my music. When I want to tune out for a while I turn to my SanDisk Sansa Clip+. I can't believe the sound quality that comes from this little giant. I download most of my music I'm FLAC format which takes up quite a bit more room than mp3. 950kbps vs 128kbps is so worth it. I need to acquire a few of these 16Gb micros. Nothin' bit BlackBerry and SanDisk for me.

with 16GB you will never miss a moment either pic, movie or voice record.
also my 8GB stick makes my bold much better media tool than my wife's Ipod, my 2 yrs baby like watch tom & jerry episodes on it.
my whole life is hanged on this stick.
I would realy have one

I store music , photos, documents on my Blackberry. I have frequently run out of space on my 2gb card and have to transfer needed information to my PC.
A 16GB card would certainly ensure that all my info is with me all the time on my Blackberry.

This 16gb memory card would really simplify my life. I travel a lot and I sometimes get tired of switching between my movie mem card and my music one. This way I can have all items on one card and enjoy continuous entertainment during my trips.

I use my Storm as a media player - and need a larger MicroSD card that I currently have. I could REALLY use a 16GB card ... PLEASE!

I just started a new IT job with my new 9700. ,now I need space for music since I can listen to music at my desk.

I need to have this! I would be able to have more music on one card instead of switching them out when wanting to listen to certain tunes.
