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



Saved up for 2 years for airfare to spend some time in Japan. Could definitely use this memory card to store enough video to keep the 3yr old entertained as well as the wife-unit and myself.

Would be #Perfect for me!!! I love music and pics, and with this card I wouldn't ever have to worry about deleting again!!!! #LoveYouCrackberry !!! :D

I can finally stop worrying about the space in my memory card..
To say that worrying about the app memory is enough.. This would make my life better.. And my phone happier

As a college student, I use my Blackberry to record lectures to help me prep for midterms and finals. The many voice notes along with my music and pictures has caused my smaller sd card to fill up quickly. So this would definitely come in handy. Pick me!

i have a 512 card now for my tour. (lost my 2 gb card) i;m in my car alot and i like to put tv shows on my bb and even some movies.

Maximum storage is important to me as I like to DJ, so saving new tunes onto my BB to check them out on the go is a must.

Would love a bigger card so I would not be limited on stored movies and so on. Size does matter.

Being able to view movies on long flights for free when in cattle class is quite the plus for cross country and intercontinental flights. A must actually! And a 16GB card is much cheaper and lasts longer than buying business class tickets....would love to win this!

Right now I'm brimming with pictures and music. This would double my current capacity so I wouldn't have to constantly fight against the free space limit.

Inovation knows no boudaries or borders...Today 16 Gb tomorrow a lot more...
Sky is the limit as Research is in motion...

I'm a bit of an App junky, I like to try lots of new apps because the users I support often ask about what they can use for this or that.


Of course for the music. My BB is currently my car stereo.

I would absolutely love to win the 16 GB microSD card! My Blackberry Bold 9000 was recently stolen, along with an 8 GB card that held all of my favorite music and 100s of pictures. A 16 GB card would be big enough to hold all of my top music, favorite playlists, and thousands of pictures!
Thank you for this opportunity and PLEASE select me to be the winner!!!

So i can take more photos, store more music and downloads bigger attachments for my work purpose. Bigger is always ... better ;)


I love my Blackberry. The card would help me to store many files that I use on a regular basis. I raise money for a Children's Hospital for a living and constantly need to access my resources from my blackberry. This card would help tremendously.


More card the merrier! Since even 9700 has only 256MB, we definitely need a nice external space...

since I use my blackberry as a portable music player this would allow me to have even more music on my device, as well as room for all my photos which I take a lot using the awesome camera on my 9630

This would be awesome to have for my music, it would finally allow me to replace my iPod with my 9700

Dangit. I bought an 8 gig thinking I had the most I could find. I thought there was a 16 gig but couldnt find it in any store so I gave up and bought the 8 gig card. Should known to check here. Help a brother out and I'll give this 8 gig to my little bro for his BB. He's still using the 2 gig it came with and it kills me.

I use my phone to watch movies and to listen to music all the time and my card right now is almost full and I need more space!

Would like to get my hands on a large capactiy BB memory card - I have been using my BB as an iPod replacement with the media manager app and my playlists are bigger than my current capacity

I travel to all 50 states on business. I log in about 250 to 300 travel days a year. I currently own a BB 9630 Tour. I download music and movies from ITunes all the time to my BB. I am currently using a 4 gig memory card. While I am on the plane I am able to watch the rented or purchased movies from my BB or even when I am waiting to board. I just cant imagine how many movies I can download to a 16 gig memory card. Alot less time downloading because of more capacity. If I win i can have several movies alot more music and my favorite book to listen to. WOW! It will make life alot more enjoyable than what it is now.

For a chef like me, this would be great to add some recipes and take piks on the fly of my dishes.

I have a 120gb ipod, i have a lot of music (most of which is purchased fairly might i add!) I've recently phased out carrying around my ipod and leave it in my car.

Now when I'm on the go or at the gym i use my blackberry for music. only problem is every week i have to delete some albums to make room for all the new music i get! i would love to have a 16gb memory card, its been the #1 accessory on my wishlist but haven't been willing to throw the cash down for.


I have a lot of audio books in itunes and along with my music my 8gig card is just not enough. I was jest contemplating picking one of these up. Winning one would even be better. No more choosing what I want to sync. :)

i have loaded movies music and pictures on at least 4 8GB memory cards and want to use them all differently! i could use the 16 for movies on days when i sit at work and do nothing having plenty of time to enjoy my tour! or when i travel on flights where i dont want to pay for the in flight movie!!!

Would love to be able to cache more Slacker stations along with all the pictures and documents I need to store. 16mg would go a long way to making that happen!

This would come in handy for me since my 16g ipod touch was stolen and my other ipod loses battery life. I would be able to store pictures, music, and documents as I use my phone religiously. My bb would replace my stolen ipod as I'm able to add more music and view/edit documents while I'm traveling for work.

To kill those iphone users (particularly one whom I live with) who bragged abt memory superiority over bb

I'm doing this for team 

So I have an 8GB card, but after my *videos* are on, there's no room for any music! Of course Murphy says I still won't have any tunes after I double up.

Personally I would like to have more device memory but I'm a picture buff and having extra memory would be great. I went to LA and took over 1000 pics I can only imagine what I could do with 16GB of space.

I typically have lots of music and photos, but it was PodTrapper that always puts me over the top of my memory limit - 16 GB would be great!

nothing witty or too in depth, just would enjoy having tons of space to keep my mp3's and files. Thank you veddy much!

I have started using my Bold 9700 for taking most of the family pics now. I used to carry a camera with me everywhere but now there's no need. Would really like the extra memory. Thanks!!!

I will utilize the 16GB to store more music, pictures, and movies. Obviously my blackberry will get fatter, but that's okay! With 16GB extra memory, my blackberry is capable of becoming smartest blackberry in the WORLD!

I'd put all my music and a bunch of vids on it that I could take advantage of when I'm bored in a store or out running.

I could put all my plane's manual, the approach charts, and such on my storm2 and then have them way faster that shuffling through all the binders!

my 4gb card is out of room and this wud help greatly in storing more pics and movies to be shared with friend

I would sure love to get my hands on one of these. I'm out of memory & have to be deleting old files of the 8GB card that came with my Storm. Please help me out.

This 16GB card could hold all my pics, videos, and tones. I would also have space to spare to add new stuff. I would love to have one of these memory cards!!!

i have the 2 gig an i use it all the time an it is always full, i have to edit it all the time the 16 gig would be sweet hook me up yall

entertainment when we are in the car and while at the stores. I keep a lot of movies/shows for them in my phone and could really use the extra memory.

This 16gig micro sd card would be great. It would allow me to put most my music a couple videos on the Tour. sure beats that 2gig one it came. 2 gigs doesn't go very far any more...

I would love this. I currently have an 8 G and its just not enough. I hate having to decide what picture song or app I'll parr w for a new one.

I would love to actually put music on my phone right now I have a 4g..and I think I have to man pics on it right now..

I use my phone for pictures. This card would really help me out. I have so many pictures already, I'm having to delete some and also having to delete some music. Help me out!

I have so much music, so many pictures. With my two kids and all the things we do, all the pictures go to the SD card. Marx Brothers said once: "More wood!". I say: "More memory!"

We have one 8GB and one 1GB between us, so this would even things up, with room to spare for all the good stuff

My 8gb is full of pictures, music, and a few videos. The 16gb would give me so much more room and I can continue to take random pics and vids without worrying about space. And of course the 16gb would allow me to continue with my wallpaper obsession.

... recall if I left a message or not, so this is just to make sure I did. Oh, to have a 16GB card that would help my actual memory ...and not just that of my BB!

My 4 GB card is full, my iPod is getting old, and I need space for photos of my new twin grandsons. Fingers crossed.

I love my Blackberry for many reasons, mostly because I can stay connected and sane at work with pictures and videos of my kids. The only problem is that I have to sacrifice my music. I'd like to not have to make that choice between pictures and music any longer!

This is a must have for a BB user. All of my pics, vids and some software info and backups go on my card. I know how bad the phone acts when it gets short on memory. Please get one of those to me.

I could load all of my music, Podcasts in PodTrapper, pictures, etc. All I need after that is for Rim to allow the apps to be stored on the card...

Since I got my wife the 16GB Apple iPhone, she parades around comparing storage capacities: her 16GB vs my 1GB built-in with my Bold.

So 16GB + 1Gb = 17GB. This should keep her quiet for awhile. At least until she gets the 32GB 3GS! ;)

Good luck everyone! :)

I am leaving for Basic Training soon and I would love to have some room for pictures of my family. Please let me have this.

I use my blackberry as my primary media device anymore. Having a media card with this amount of storage would let me add all the music, videos, books and podcasts I want without having to worry about space.

16GB is so much more space than I have right now. It would save time and effort, instead of emailing things back and forth and deleting off the handheld, I can just keep it on my phone. SO COOL

Ahh this would help me out so much. I have lots of pictures and music on it but saved onto the on board memory because I don't have a memory card. I deff would love to be able to add movies onto my blackberry. Thanks a lot crackberry :)

I use my blackberry for everything. I am currently a student. I use my blackberry to listen to class lectures and recordings that I make myself as well as for music. Memory is like money, the more the better.

It would help me store more music on the device and store more things in it so i dont have to really watch it as much as i do now. Thanks CB for another chance to win!

the simplest reason could be for pure selfish reasons. I have cousins who are going through a rough divorce and I spend as much time with them as I can. I want to be able to show them that they can smile and have a good time even though most days it seems not possible.

I've had my 8GB card for years now, it time for an update so I don't have to decide which movies & music stays on the card!

I need one of these, i have a lot of pictures that I take and music that i would like to have on my blackberry!!! gl to all

I would LOVE to win this card! I have tons of music & pictures that I need space for on my Bold 9700. Phone is amazing, and I want to begin developing themes for it using icons I create. However, I do use photos of real objects around New York City & I need to be able to capture & store my images on the run. This 16GB card would be such a GODSEND!

Sweet! If I win I won't have to grab my FLIP when my students are acting crazy; I can just pull out my Tour and email the video to mom and dad!

I have tens of thousands of pictures of this summer, when I went to Darfur to volunteer/Build homes and when people ask to see them, I am only able to show a fraction of them because of my 1 GB card.

I would enjoy having this card because I could use it to store all my music and pictures and other files that I need on the go. I am always busy and am never at my desk or home, so this would be great, and it would be very hard to fill up completely. Please pick me!

I travel for work so the addition of a 16Gb card would be wonderful! I am a trainer for diesel mechanics. My customers consist of DOT's, municipalities, electric and gas companies, etc. The card would allow me to store my presentation power points and run them on the Blackberry Presenter. It would also allow me to save some music while I'm flying too.

I need more storage my 2GB micro sd card is almost full :( I would appreciate the 16GB quite a bit! kthnx

I luv taking pic's with my 9700, biking with the wife or bday celebrations with the family. Music to excersise with, lots of newage or rock.. Help a poor guy out here!!!

I have to take alot of pics and email them while Im out in the field working, and keep most saved on my Storm2 for later use. I also love to upload pics to twitter and facebook while Im out camping and hiking. I could really use the extra 'umpfh' in my phone.

It would really help me to save the pictures I post or like on Twitter & Facebook when I'm not due home for a few days.

Great giveaway!

I am a Uncle, a friend, and a soon to be father. I need a 16 gig card to be able to take photos of my family and friends.

I always wanted a 16GB scan card. Between me always writing memos and making alot of voice notes it eats up all my memory on my 2GB card.

My BlackBerry is my only source of Music and Movies, and it's where I place all the photos of my kids, wife, friends and family. At the moment, I have a 4 gig card but its close to getting all used up. As an old saying goes, the more the merrier!!! :)

I would use the additional space to carry around the things that matter most to me. I spend a lot of time away from home and at work, so i would load it up with pictures of my gorgeous wife and my handsome valley bulldog...

Cheers CB Thanks for the great giveaways !

I use my BB a lot on the job to take photos to attach to reports since a regular camera is not always accessible, and I also make voice notes as reminders for later. To be able to take full resolution photos and not have to worry about having to take the photos off of my memory card every few weeks would be an added benefit. This hardware upgrade could certainly make for a productivity boost!

i would use the 16 gb to download more music for the gym. it would be better then the 8 gb that i have.

Hello people,

Until now I had a BlackBerry Storm 9500 with a 16GB memory card. This I had mostly used for animated films for my junior (3 years).
But since I had big problems with the Storm, I have changed it into a Bold 9700. Unfortunately I had to give up the memory card also and now I have only a 2GB memory card and no place for Junios cartoons.
Now he is very sad that they have Dad's Blackberry, can not see any more films.

I would therefore like to win the 16GB memory card.


Mine would simply be just so I don't have to carry around an iTouch so I can watch my fav videos/MVs and movies. With 16gb, I can just have my BB for everything! Selfish? Maybe..... :(

Choose me!!! I have been needing a media card after I lost mine! I used to store movies, pictures, music, and school documents on it!

My 11 year old daugter keeps my card full of videos she makes of herself and our new little chihuahua puppy and I just hate to erase any of those memories to make room for the new ones. I really need to win this one.

With my job, I take a TON of photos with my phone. Also, since I generally work by myself, I listen to music. That being said, my husband's been urging me to switch over to an iphone for a year or so now. Honestly, I LOVE my crackberry 9700. Never going back. The biggest downside is the limited memory, and my current 1gig card makes me consider how much content I keep on that poor little phone. If I had more room, I could continue to abuse it with hundreds upon hundreds of photos of work equipment (as well as obsessive ones I take of my dogs...a girl's got to have some crazy in her life!) and keep my entire music collection with me.

Soooo, please help me prove that Blackberry pwns Apple!

i use my blackberry as my source for music, so i would have alot more space for that, but more importantly it would give me more space to record videos of my friends doing stupid stuff to put up on you tube.

I love my Zune, but sometimes I just do not want to carry two devices around. Being able to store more music on my Tour would allow me to get away with only carrying one device.

If i had a 16GB card, i could leave my IPod at home, thus eliminating the heavy feeling of having it on my body along with my 8520 :)

I need this card for my kids they love using my phone with the card they can watch videos listen to music look at pictures... And give me a break!

To get microSD card 16GB it will help alot and improve on your blackberry device! High storage capacity (16GB) for storing essential digital content such as high quality photos, videos, music and more
Built-in security features enable users to download, store, and play secure content just like an SD card.
Speed performance rating: Class 2 (based on SD 2.00 Specification)
Built to last, with an operating shock rating of 2,000Gs, equivalent to a ten-foot drop ! 16 Gb is a beast compare 2 Gb .

Greater memory space to save pics of my girls. All too often, the best opportunities for great pics are when I do not have my digital camera on hand. Since I always have my BB, having this card would certainly lessen the chance of missing a great photo.

I use my BB for all my media storage the problem is, my phone was stolen and azurion won't even replace the card that came with my Storm. Would be nice to make my BB more functional with my lifestyle again, but times are hard and I can't be dishing out the cash I don't have. Would be the greatest thing to have one of these again. Please choose me!?!?!

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

I want this so I can toss my ipod away. All I need is a bigger memory card on my Blackberry, and I have my phone and media player in one where ever I roam.

Wait, what was I thinking about? Oh yeah, more memory for the music/pics/voice notes/vids on my Berry! Yeah!!

Winning this will be awesome... since I already ran out of space on my 8GB card and my internal 1gb also full (BOLD9000) .....

I do lots of travel and compose music also on the run... so need more memory to store my ideas and carry tunes.

I wish everyone good luck and me too! :)

Hmm... 16gb, eh? 8 gigs or so of music; another gig or two of movies that I'd rotate around for entertainment value; some spare space to carry my essential documents and files, such as my resume, desktop manager, portable softwares, etc. and the rest for pictures and themes!

Yeah, I guess 16gb would do, but soon enough I'll need 32!

Also, I'm going to need a case that has a slot for my sd adapter. :)

The 16gb sandisk card would be awesome.
I just recently found the free kindle for blackberry & I have all of my audible library books to download!!!

I don't have to worry about space with this card. I can keep my music, video and pictures all in one place.

It would be awesome to have one of these babies! Please choose me! I would definitely use it to its full ability! :)

Could use it for tons more picture and video storage, as well as music. Pretty much personal use, but I would really grateful if considered. Thanks.

I am in Real Estate and have plans as well as flyer information on my cards. I need more space as i am not a good cloud person. Let me have the data where i know it is type of a thing.

WOW This would be great! I'm going to europe this summer and I would love to throw 16gb worth of songs onto my blackberry as opposed to my ipod!! it would limit the amount of electronics that can be stolen (since I will ALWAYS have my berry on me) as well as the amount of chargers that I will need to carry. PLEASE I would love to win this one!

Just started adding some mobile media content and the card I have isn't lasting long. This would be a great addition.

Man oh Man could I use this! Not only do I not have enough room on my current 2G card for pics (I'm a 1st Responder & document a lot of our calls for later 'debriefing'), but I don't have enough room for music to listen to @ work. Speaking of work, more storage sure would allow me space to keep various forms of my resume, since I'm looking for a better job that doesn't have me working Every weekend, and until midnight each night! Thanks!

I only have 2GB memory card, which is not nearly enough to srore my videos, documents, music, apps and all my other files. 16 GB would surely help

Im a music download junky on my BB...i really could use this to save tons of music and videos..and oh yes..alll my docs to go files..

I have an 8 gb sd card for my blackberry, but it is filled. Having music, pictures, and caching Slacker stations takes up alot of space. I could use a 16 gb card!

I need more storage so much. I only have a 4 gig and I'm constantly deleting music and photos or moving them to my pc to make space for new music and pics. I can never record videos longer than 10 seconds since I never have any space for them. Please CrackBerry, hook it up!

I had a Blackberry 8900 w/ a 16gb chip that got stolen in a car jacking. :(

I rebought a Blackberry... this time a 9700, but all I have is the small chip that came with it... I think it's less than one GB. I'd love a big chip so I can save videos of my girlfriend and I as we travel across the planet. :]

I recently became part of the BB fam with the addition of my Storm 2. I am now in love with a phone! The additon of a memory card would make me swoon. lol....(Iv'e always been petrofied of running out of memory and losing special moments) ..ok I really wanna add movies etc too. I've been using Crackberry since I decided to buy a BB and it's been a real help. Thanks guys!

I would looove one of these cards!! I am constantly having to delete pictures from my 9000. My sd card is too small at the moment and I would love to be able to have more media on my BB.

With my 8gb micro sd, that I have now, I'm constantly removing and adding, and changing the music and movies on my bold... where would we be without or technology? Seriously, a night without my bb and my music seems scary. haha

I had to delete my music so I could store pics of my daughter...with this card, i would have a fighting chance of adding my music back to my BB...although I'll probably end up having to delete it again because of more pics...but at least i may get a few months, at least, of music :-)

It would make a lot easier to capture those treasured memories of my son playing baseball and not have to worry about remembering the big bulky video camera.

I've been flying a lot lately and found that the onboard entertainment can't compare to my BB's movie collection. I'd love to throw a bigger music and video/movie library on there for my upcoming trips.

Biggest reason, more media space. I would love to be able to carry more of my music on my BB and not have to carry my iPod along with me as well. I've already ditched my digital camera and only use the one on my BB so I always have tons of photos and videos to store. A card of this size would be a life saver!

This would be the ultimate!! I've gone thru many sd cards for movies, music, would be so-o sweet to have them all on one card...this card needs a BB like mine...

Winning the 16gb sd card for my blackberry would allow me to have more applications and pictures as well as music for when I workout!

This would be great i could use it to put movies on my phone so that my kid could watch movies or i can well i am waiting at a job interview to find a new job
