    Get a 4 or higher. Usually it's written right on the card.

    The higher the class, the faster the read/write speed. 4 is standard, 2 came with our phones, but there are some 10's out there that are only a few bucks more.
    Look at newegg.com and you should find some great deals/prices. I'd never buy the ones from Verizon or at Best Buy, overpriced like crazy.

    Wow... I feel ripped off then. Mine only came with a class2 and I can tell it's slow as crap in comparison to my class 4 8gb card. :S
