    Yes. SanDisk and Kensington are good brands.

    make sure to get the highest class memory card you can find, last time got a Sandisk class 4 micro SDHC... The higher the class, the faster your file transfer speed will be, & I'm not sure all phones take the SDHC type cards so check your model. There's also just Micro SD cards, but those are slower........


    link to explain that whole class issue, other card info:

    I recommend SanDisk (as the above posts) and also Transcend.They cost about the same amount and are pretty much the same.I have both types and am happy with the transfer speed and reliability.If you buy a Sandisk MicroSD you also get an SD card adaptor.

    No they aren't. They come with different speed ratings and costs.
    Despite that I don't see any real difference in function for a phone so I'd go cheap.

    I stick with major brands when it comes to flash memory; all of mine are either SanDisk, Crucial, or Kingston.

    All of my MicroSD cards happen to be Kingston, because I found a place that runs periodic specials on them and I've gotten great prices:

    I've used my MircoSD cards both in my phone and in USB flash drive adapters on a regular basis, and never had a malfunction or failure.

    on a cellphone, basically i'd go cheap; find the best deal you can for one...you're not going to notice any performance difference, really (on a cellphone); on a digital camera or saving on a laptop, yes; better sd cards make a noticeable difference...

    Thanks for the link WillCAD, I need a few micro sd cards for the gps unit to load maps on to but I don't need the adapters that come packaged with most cards.

    Agree with most people on here, go for a more mainstream card, 99% of my storage devices, sd, mmc, usb, micro sd are Sandisk and have had no problems with any of them.
