Default Does the RMH include aan SD card?

My new Maxx HD is due to arrive tomorrow - can't wait!

One question. Does it come with an SD card already installed? or do I have to buy that separately? I think the Droid X came with one.

No SD card included. Probably since they come with decent enough internal storage nowadays.

Oh well... I guess I'll have to spring for an SD card.

Any pointers on which one to get?

Not really no, but I can tell you which one to avoid :P

Amazon.com: SanDisk Ultra 32 GB microSDHC Class 6 Memory Card 30MB/s with Adapter SDSDQY-032G-U46A: Electronics

Avoid that model. It will not work with Motorola phones, and I'm not the only one it's happened to.

Hmm... thanks! I assume you returned it. What did you end up buying instead?

I actually didn't return it, I sold it to my brother for 20 instead, worked just fine in his GS3.

I haven't gotten a replacement yet though. Can't help ya on that, sorry bud.

As others have pointed out, no SD card comes with the phone, and yes I also had a Droid X and it came with a 16GB when first released. Later, when they started discounting the phone, I think they put a 2GB card in the box.

Here's the SD card I purchased for my Maxx HD from Amazon and it works great.

Amazon.com: SanDisk Ultra 32 GB MicroSDHC Class 10 UHS-1 Memory Card with Adapter (SDSDQU-032G-AFFP-A): Electronics

They also have a 64GB version but I figured with 32GB internally and a 32GB SD card, I should have enough.

Best of luck to you.

Thanks! I thought one can only add up to 32GB. Anyway, I agree, 64GB total should be enough to last me for a while!

That's an option, but I'm thinking of maintaining all my old games on the DX so I can play them from time to time and just starting afresh on the RMH.

Still, if the RMH comes equipped with 32GB already, I probably don't need to add an SD at least for a while -- since I only had 24GB total on the DX.

Bought the 64gb one off amazon. Stuck it in and formatted works perfectly. Around 70gb storage after partitions and formatting.

you would think for the full price of $299 it would come with an sd card. My 2 year old Thunderbolt was $199 and it came with a 32 GB card and 20GB on board.

I haven't really seen any reason to have an SD card in it, unless maybe you are loading tons of movies or something on it?

Yep, I keep all my songs and movies on my 8 GB sd. It comes in very handy.

What issues did you have?
I've been using these in my Razr and now in my Razr Maxx HD that I've had since they came out
