    $32.99 at Fry's

    32GB card is too expensive right now and i dont need that much anyways. I now have 32GB total.

    Loaded my music from iTunes using DoubleTwist and everything went well except that it only loaded about half of my Album art....and some songs in my music document that i didnt want. Dont know how to get my other album art.

    I remember somebody in here saying the headphones that came w/ the phone sucked. They arent that bad IMO but they arent as good as my Skull candy earbuds either that i use and i have a couple others but i dont have expensive ones like Shure.

    When you listen to the music and then click the 5.1 button on the top right, it makes it sound a whole lot better as well. That only works when you have the earbuds plugged in.

    Try Salling Media Sync, it syncs automatically the itunes library and loads me all the album arts.
    And yeah, the 5.1 sounds great with good headphones. Samsung should work making better ones.

    I dont see why everyone is saying the earbuds are crap.... yes they are not top notch but they were free... I have got 3 other "smartphone" all of which came with earbuds... the samsungs are by far the best to come with the handset.

    Believe it or not Office Depot and Staples sometimes put amazing deals on their SD Card, as does Costco.

    I love Microcenter, Micro Center - Computers, Electronics, Computer Parts, Networking, Gaming, Software, and more! and if that fails, pricewatch.com are my resources for getting good deals. I wouldn't shop for geek tech stuff unless in a bind, from the box retail stores. They have good return policies though :) Well so does Microcenter if you have one in town like here.

    I find that these earbuds are better than the buds that came with the Behold 2 by far. However, I have another headset that gives me more of the fidelity and they still fall out of my ears, first time using these earbuds, maybe if the silicone was like velcro or maybe fish hooks, don't know what it is, just a different alien individual walking the streets, I'm not normal :D

    Sure they do but the best deals on Micro cards ive found were online and this price was beating those by a little and i wanted to get a card. Ill never use that much space. I dont load it up with a bunch of movies and i have about 1,200 songs. Ill add some here and there but it wont be a dramatic difference..

    Ive got 6 GB left on my 16 GB iPhone. 32GB card would be nice but just dont want to pay a lot right now.
    So, does anybody have a slick way of getting album art on the phone? Would be nice to get it right if i can. Dont get why it didnt load all my album art in the first place.

    So what brand is the microSD card you baught from frys? Is it a name brand or generic china?

    I haven't baught things from Frys in oh my gosh years, I just shop online most of the time. I might pick one of these up tomorrow if its name brand, otherwise whenever I try cheap sd cards, files are always corrupt.

    I looked through my usual sources. Can't find a good deal like you have found for a class 4 16 gb, but they have 8 gb class 4 deals that sound good to me. The cheapest that priecwatch has on 32gb microsd, $150! I mean really, it would seem it should be more proportional to me anyways from 4 to 8 to 16, then 32. 32 just sets itself out there in a whole different league.

    Microcenter doesn't have anything higher than 16 when I looked, would be nice to know what they'd offer at least. Just got done looking at Fry's online and didn't get much help there either.

    I didnt get it from their online store. Their online store isnt usually up to date as they have sales all the time. It was in their 4 page Friday ad in the newspaper.

    Actually you don't wish for fry's, trust me. A majority of the stuff they sell are returns put back on the shelf. There is nobody ever around to help you. They sell cheap cheap china generic junk that you can purchase off ebay, but they have a crazy high markup margin. Same exact laptop power cable is 29.99 at frys, while its 9.95 with free shipping on ebay.
    I mean its not totally horrible, it was really popular in the 1990's, but I just try to avoid that store now. With all the great deals from companies like amazon, newegg, and free shipping with orders of 25 or above, it is not worth it.

    I also don't like how they insist on checking your receipt when you leave the door. yes yes yes I know, i'm not stupid, its about preventing loss, keeping prices down, etc etc. However, If there is a long line to exit, I just avoid it and keep walking. Legally they can't force me to show them any receipt. Only stores that can, are membership stores like Costco, since you basically signed a contract with them.

    By the way, don't you guys want class 6? I heard its really worth the extra cash. But going from 6 to 10, isn't worth the extra dough.

    "Album Art Grabber" works great and is very fast.

    I just pass over the returned items, they are easy to tell as they have a different sticker on them and are usually marked down a bit from the unopened ones. If you hit them on their sales you can get some very good deals. I use them from time to time when I'm planning a new computer build, or when I need more storage in my server.

    Best Buy does the receipt checking where I live, even Walmart does it on larger items. It sucks, I agree.

    The feeling at the moment I believe, is that a 16GB class 4 card is where the value is.. Class 4 to 6 isn't that big of a jump performance wise especially at the cost of doubling to tripling of the price.

    I used to work for microcenter in dallas and they have 32gb OEM ones at the front register. You have to ask for it though. its like $50 something.

    Not sure what class it was but it was fast enough to record video on my old LG Renoir which did 480P with DIVX compression. other memory cards the video would chop alot when recording because it couldnt write it fast enough.

    so wait here is another question, why is everyone running out to buy sd cards already?

    the phone comes with 16gb internal, 2gigs of this is dedicated to apps. you have 14 gb left over. the internal memory is much faster than any sd card you can purchase. or am I completely missing something?

    Wow, where do you live? I dont see that. I may have to flag somebody down in certain area's but not very often. And you have to look to see what is returned and what isnt. I dont buy everything from there. Not even close. I bought my 46" LCD there and some other things of course but i go where the best deal is when im ready to get something specific.

    Also i have had no problems returning anything there. Even when it was out of date.

    I dont feel i need a class 6. If i saw one that was near the same price i would. The class speed rating is for write speed anyways. If it were near the same price perhaps but i was almost fine with a class 2 and figured class 4 was more than adequate. This one just happened to be on sale so i went and got it.

    With all of the new lag fixes using internal storage I don't think there is as big a rush to get the "fastest" card out there now, as there is to get the "biggest" card you can afford.

    I have a 16GB card installed in mine that came from my old Droid and with it and the internal storage I still only have about 4GB free now. I like to carry a lot of stuff around with me tho as I travel a lot into areas where I have only edge for data which makes streaming audio/video a no go.

    Oh nice! Which one? The free one or the $1.99? Is the free one good enough?

    i'm not saying you cant hehe, i'm just asking why? did you already use up the built in remaining 14 gb?

    No, but some apps say they will be saved on or require an sdcard. I also want to put my music on the card to have room for other things that might require more speed and I just want to have at least 32GB on It. And also because I can. Couldn't on my iphone.
