Depending on the memory card manufacturer and type, some memory cards may not be compatible with your device.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Micro SD Card Classes

   • Micro SD cards have capacity up to 2GB.
 

   • Micro SDHC (High Capacity) cards offer capacity up to 32GB.
 

   • Micro SDXC (eXtended Capacity) cards have capacity from over 32GB and up to 2TB, currently.
 

   • Each type of card has a speed rating of 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10, from slowest to fastest.
 

While you can use any class of Micro SD card in your device, the Micro SDXC card is recommended for high-resolution video recording due to its large storage capacity and high-speed read/write capability.
 

For less demanding use, such as still photography, regular Micro SD or Micro SDHC cards will be sufficient.

What can I do if I lost the ejector tool?

If you lost the ejector tool, don’t panic! It is easy to replace it with a very common object: a paper clip. Unfold one of the end of the paperclip (as shown above) and use it as an ejector tool. As you can see, it is a very simple DIY!

Thank you for your feedback!
