    Okay this may be a stupid question but the Droid X comes with 2gb pre-installed on the sd card. Can that hold right much?

    Depends on what you are putting on it. Music, no its not going to hold that much if your library is large, especially if you have pictures and apps that you are putting to the SD card. I have a 16gb micro sd card in my DX and it's got 5 gb free, however I have my entire music library and MANY pictures on it, plus a few videos of my dogs, along with some apps. I also have documents for college stored on the card that I can access or email to myself if needed to print out at college and such. 2 gb will hold quite a few pictures by itself if that was all you wanted to use it for. If you plan on using it as an mp3 player as well, I recommend getting a larger micro SD card personally.

    2 GB? I'm pretty certain that it has the same size SD card as my D2 which is 8 GB. I took that out and put the one from my D1 in there.

    If you're smart you won't put any music on your phone at all. Amazon MP3 will stream your music via 3G or wifi if you set up a Cloud. They give you 20 GB with the purchase of 1 mp3 album and you can spend as little as $5.00 on that.

    Also Google Music is coming out, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to stream on that as well. No sense wasting space with music if you can stream it IMHO.

    Pretty sure it's 8gb. Unless you bought it used, the 8 could have been switched out for a 2. Unless you have a lot of music, put it on the sd (unless it really is a 2gb), otherwise go the cloud route.

    The X comes with a 16 GB sd. 8 on board, 16 sd for 32 total out of the box. Did someone pull a switch on you?

    Well in my case, (I am smart, Thank you very much) I put the music on there because at the gym, I don't get enough reception inside to stream anything and there is no wifi, so unless I want to spend extra money on an mp3 player when my phone can easily do it, I had to "waste space" with music on my sd card in order to be able to listen to music at the gym. Before you go insinuating that people are dumb, try thinking about what their reasoning could be please.

    Am I allowed to point out simple math errors without being rude? 16 + 8 = 32? This must some of that "new" math!

    haha I caught on to the math error too.

    so wait, is the X now shipping with 16 SD or 2? two different people saying two different things.

    also, that's good info about the amazon cloud being upgraded to 20 GB with the purchase of an album. I'll have to get on that. Thanks!

    I don't think anyone is saying you are dumb. I know I was just checking on the memory because I always thought it came with at least an 8 (or 16). I would just spend the $40 and get a 16gb card (amazon). All the space you may need! Hopefully.

    I can assure everyone that if you go to verizon and buy an X today it will have a 2GB sd card. I think that's crap on verizon part since my X came with 16.

    D'oh! Thanks for that. Not rude at all. I meant 24 onboard. Not sure why I typed 32. Wishful thinking I guess? : )

    Honestly, why can't you nerf the 16gb to 8gb? They're losing $ on this device. 2gb is just overkill. Thankfully I found a coupon for a free 4gb card on my wirefly purchase but still.. <^> verizon.

    Blame Motorola. Verizon not only doesn't decide the size of the SD cards they don't warranty them either. If its a sandisk you go to sandisk, if its no name you go to the phone manufacturer.

    Yeah, I think they changed the size of the SD card sometime back around January or February...

    The bare minimum of my stuff on my SD card (including back-ups and pics, very little music) takes up 4-5GB... I'm not sure how it's even possible to have a 2GB card in this phone.

    Indeed. From 16 to 2 is pretty drastic. Guess they didn't want it showing up the X2 which has just an 8? Go figure.

    The X2 shipping with only an 8GB is just as ridiculous. They must have figured, very few people are going to buy larger cards if we already include a 16GB.

    It's all about the Benjamins... as usual.
