    I’d like to know where you get HSDPA/UMTS (2100/1900/850 MHz)??? I see nothing of that in the FCC’s report.

    Yawn!!! this is ALL way too much for my faint heart. did someone just call to remind me that 11.04 IS Election Day; and that WE should get out and vote? I hope so, because there’s whole bunch of people starvin’ and losin’ their homes and gettin’ laid off so we can get BOLD and STORM the barricades. Go and vote. Stay away from the carriers until they holler and let go of your pockets!!!

    Tired of T-mobile not getting the goods! AT&T = always Trump T-MOBILE!

    I think it will be able to take larger that 8GB micro sdhc cards.

    My reasoning:
    It must be legible to Windows.
    Windows (to my knowledge, out of the box) reads only Fat16, Fat32, and NTFS.
    Fat16 only goes to 2GB, thus cannot be Fat16
    Fat32 goes up to 8TB (according to

    So as the cards get bigger it should handle the new SDHC cards just fine.

    Anyone else have some input?

    I know there is a flaw in my logic b/c ver OS 4.2 has the capability of 4GB (is this some quasi Fat volume?) but not 8GB.

    The size of the memory card supported is dependant on Blackberry’s OS, and right now it only supports 8gigs. Rumors state soon enough they will support 16gig and 32gig cards. But when these phones ( Bold & Storm ) release, their OS only supports 8gigs.

    if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!
