    I'm not very smartphone-savvy, so excuse this question in advance, but: what is the deal with micro sdcard? Is that something that was installed on the phone? Was it something that was supposed to come with the phone? Is it something I have to buy separately? I'm trying to download a picture from an email to my HTC Incredible, and it says "SD card needed." What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

    Some got them, Some did not. It depends if you ordered during the free sdcard promotion.

    You can pick them up pretty cheap.

    I retract my previous question (seeing several SD cards on verizon.com), but I am wondering which card is recommended.

    How much storage do you need? Photos, Music, etc. I have an 8gb sd card installed on my INC and plenty of space left. 8gb sd cards can be had for relatively cheap. I've seen 8gb Sandisk for around $10. on Amazon, that's what I Have a (Sandisk.) If you can afford more go for it, if not 16gb is still a lot of space on a phone, depending on your needs. You can't have enough memory.

    I believe the 2GB SD card still comes with the phone, if you didnt receive it i would call and ask about it.

    2GB isnt really anything though so i would recommend buying a 16GB.

    Yea, the 2gb isn't much but if you're stuck it's better than nothing. I got one with my phone but don't use it, at least they included it. Definitely make a call. This phone really needs the extra storage space to perform up to it's potential.

    Thanks for all the replies. Any advice on brands? I've seen a few 16GB ones on Amazon for under $30. Are they all going to be compatible with the Incredible?

    Should mention that the cards I've seen on Amazon are Sandisk.

    Much agreed. I think SanDisk are the best ones out right now.
