    Thats a lot of memory on a tiny card, but no. The s3 only supports up to 64gb

    I would think it will handle any SDHC card and even any SDXC card (but maybe not at UHS speeds).

    They'll only advertise 64GB since that's likely all they tested/validated.

    Has anybody gotten a 64GB card to work in the S3? I just got a SanDisk Class 10 64GB SDXC card and when I put it in the phone it says checking sd card and then I keep getting the "safe to remove sd card message". I can't get my phone to read it. Any steps I should take?

    I just got my 64 gb class 10 uhs 1 sd card and it seems to be working. I formatted it to fat32 with my computer since it defaults to exFAT. From what I read, exFat doesn't work with recoveries and corrupts easier.

    Yes format the card to FAT32 and it should work, assuming you (fdnj48) got your card from a reputable dealer. I only say that since there are a lot of fakes.
