Expandable Phone Memory.

by monotholic / August 30, 2008 5:53 AM PDT

I'm looking for a phone with a very very large amount of expandable memory. On AT&T (which is my carrier) has two phones that attract me with their large expandable memory options. The first one it the Motorola Q Global (the gray one) and under memory it say 32GB micro SD (I think its micro but I'm can't remember at the moment) and teh HTC TyTn II which has the same amount of expandable memory. THe thing is....is this even true or is AT&T bluffing? Can anyone confirm that these two phones have that much memory to expand up too? Plus...where can you find these cards of this much storage anyway? Seems like that they're not for sale in the USA yet.

It is not At&t who determines the memory capacity, it is the manufacturer of the phone.

the manufacturers sites. They usually have detailed specs of what they make. I'm sure you can do it just as well as I can.

Also keep in mind that when the phone specs were released by the manufacturer, the 32 Gb memory cards may not have actually been available but the phone may support the larger memory capacity.

Thank you for the much need info. Do you know where I can get cards of such a large size? I think it was micro SD they take. Do countries outside the USA have this available? (countries like the UK for an example.)

yes, esp. since it runs wm6/wm6.1

Once the larger 32GB cards come out you are good to go. FWIW, I currently use 4 & 8GB cards with my ATT Tilt.

Thanks. But when were these sizes (32GB) announced? When do they come out? Are they available yet?

So far, I can only find 8Gb Micro SD cards online. Don't have any idea when the 32Gb will or is available.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
