    Saw where people were able to use a 64gig micro-sd card on the RAZR. Has anyone tried this on the Rezound? I assume it would work, don't know if there is a special way to format or not. I guess I could always roll the dice and return if it doesn't work.

    I'm planning on getting the 32gig card, but if a 64gig will work I might wait for a sale or good price. You can never have too much storage!

    Yeah.. I have a 16 gig in my phone and that's heaps of apps and music wouldn't mind me a 32 tho.

    I have the rest of my files stored on computer hard drives.

    I backup my sd card data regularily only dowside I can see is backing up 60 gigs of data that's gonna take a while.

    Ehhh, mostly music that is stored/managed on my computer and transferred/backed-up to my phone.

    Bestbuy has this for $99. I'm definitely going to get at least a 32gig, so think I will order 64gigs and trade if it fails. Apparently it works, but seems some have had issues days later. BB probably has like a 30 day return policy, so for that price I'm going to give it a go I think.

    Music and pictures chews up a lot of storage. Then if you have some video saved 32gigs goes quick. I'd like to keep about 8gigs free (2hrs?) for shooting video, and maybe a few more gigs free for computer work files or who knows what. I'm not someone who wants to bother swapping SD cards, so 32gigs is a no-brainer but 64 is very interesting....

    I got to keep my 32gb card from my Bolt (got my Rezound via alternate device warranty exchange) and I love it. My music and some videos (movies and TV shows) are life savers when I have down time. I may have to get the 64gb if it works in this phone.

    Well, I'm going to order the 64gig since I don't have a 32, and I'll let people know. If it doesn't work, I'll exchange it.

    The fact that it formats to like 57.4 instead of closer to 64 doesn't inspire confidence. Tells me the software/format/hardware isn't fully compatible and likely to have issues with instability, and could also be something that causes problems when updating Android or a new rom.

    that's normal, you only get 29 when you format 32gb card.

    Is there a way to use a sd card higher than 32 gigs if you're rooted? I have a 16 gig right now

    You don't have to be rooted to use any size of SD card. The only issues some people have are with the high speed Class 10 cards.

    Well, so far so good.....Sandisk 64gig card (59gigs formatted) Class 6 from BestBuy for $100....no issues so far!

    Was a beautiful thing to see after install. Playing music just flies switching to the next song. Took me about 3 hours to copy 40gigs of music to it (via USB).

    I ordered BestBuy online...had shipped to local store for pick-up. I think it says "sold out online" now, but keep an eye out if you're looking to pick one up.
