    I wonder if a firmware update will allow for larger capacities (ie 64GB) later on? hmmm

    We will probably all be running the EVO 3 by the time 64Gb MicroSD's are mass produced and not more expensive than our subsidized phones!;)

    It might depend on hardware support... currently microSD supports up to 4GB, and microSDHC support from 4GB to 32GB. MicroSDXC may be required for capacities beyond 32GB. I do not know what the EVO 4G supports hardware wise, but I just wanted to point out that firmware is just one part of the equation to support 64GB and higher capacities.

    Note: I have not seen an microSDXC cards anywhere, but microSD is just a sub-format of SD cards and SDXC cards are currently being produced for newer digital cameras.
    :D

    There were some firmware / driver updates for older SD card readers that allowed them to address SDHC cards. My old IBM laptop shipped with a reader that was SD ready, but later had an update that allowed it to read > 2GB cards. I believe it was the same with my PPC-6700 phone that I had before my touch pro.

    Assuming the electrical contacts are the same on SDXC cards are the same as SDHC, it's feasible that a driver update could allow use of SDXC.

    If it's a different physical pinout on the new cards, then no amount of driver updates will fix it :(

    I have read the full manual, call Sprint and still do not have an answer.
    What is the largest size SD card the Evo 4G will recognize?
