    With my current music selection, my SD card only has about 350MB left. Is that okay or do I need to keep a certain amount free for any magic that Android does behind the scenes?

    You can fill up your SD all you want.


    All Android's "behind the scene" work is only effecting the internal memory.


    If your rooted, make sure you save enough memory for a backup if you make one.

    I would recommend getting a larger (16GB?) card if you can. You may want to add more music, move apps to the SD card (Froyo) and/or take pictures or videos.

    If you do get a higher-capacity card, get one with a faster write speed (Class 6). You'll notice a difference -- especially when recording videos.

    Yeah, I've been looking for one. Unfortunately there don't seem to be too many 32GB options. I saw one that cost as much as the phone!

    But even the 16GB options were all Class 2, or brands I've never heard of.

    I wouldn't say that. A lot of programs use the sd card for caching, and apps like the camera use it for its main storage. It's always a good idea to keep 5-10% free on the card.
