    So I have a skyrocket and wanted to buy some more storage and was wondering:

    does any "microSDHC Card" work with this?

    And what is the largest size I can use with it?

    Any other tips would be appreciated

    Your Skyrocket should be able to use that 32GB card fine.

    In theory that is the largest your phone will be able to use. Most current devices are only rated for micro SDHC (high capacity, which essentially means up to 32GB). But there are micro SDXC cards out there (extended capacity, which I believe can stretch to 2TB) , and some folks have gotten those working on their devices without a problem. I have seen 64GB cards running on an HTC EVO and a European SGS2 (which is different than the Skyrocket).
