    I've got the supplied 4gb card in my phone but i am thinking of upgrading to a 16gb one. In the past every other phone i have put a larger card in (most recently a blackberry curve) slow down massively when a larger card is put in (in the case of the blackberry 1gb to 8gb). Does this happen with the desire? if so is there any way to stop it as i want the storage but don't want to lose the performance?

    The performance should stay the same, I'm on a 8gb now, but will probably be getting a 16 as 32 are a complete rip off price wise.. :(

    For me I found a speed increase moving to the 8gb, it may be due to it being a class 6 card

    Plz can some 1 help me. i visited some store 2 day and they said that they sell HTC Desire without the 2 GB memmory card, in fact there is no memmory card at all ! Could the HTC Desire be fake or used? Or maybe its nothing 2 warry about? Cus i saw some videos on youtube and i saw many times that there was always the 2 GB card in the device.

    plz help, 10x :(

    That was the sound of me trying to be funny about the style and language used in your post apparently going right over your head.


    In English for the benefit of all.

    As far as I know all Desires come with a 4GB card as Standard. Therefore a Desire with a 2GB card is rather suspect and it suggests it may not be brand new. I hope this helps.

    Ohh i didnt mean to say in my first comment 2 GB i ment 4 GB.. But nvm about that, i just wanted 2 say that they sell the Device with no memmory card at all.. Could it possibly be that HTC sells the device like this?
    BTW 10x 4 helping me, means alot :)

    I now talked with the shop (www.line.co.il ) and they said that every shipment they get from the factories is diffrent, last month they said that they got with the memmory card and this month without the memmory card, they say maybe someone from the factories removing the memmory cards they dont really know..

    Could it be True what they are saying ? Cuase really i dont give a damn about the memmory card at all ( am buying 8GB class 6 anyway ) i just need 2 know that the HTC is not used and most importantly not a Fake!

    Plz comment me back peaople :)

    From the user guide

    Inside the box
    You will find the following inside the box:
    USB cable
    AC adapter
    3.5mm stereo headset
    microSD card (pre-installed)
    Quick start guide
    Safety and regulatory guide

    I really really can't see why there would not be a memory card supplied - Are you limited to buying from line.co or can you buy it from somewhere else?

    Almost any store in Israel doesnt supply the memory card some stores do but there revie sucks + all the stores far from home, i want 1 near homo if something is wrong with the Desire.

    My UK one came with a card but it wasn't preinstalled - 3 had put it in some ridiculously hard to open packaging slapped with their logo!
