    Yes, the 840g does support a 32 gb micro SD card. I'm using a Sandisk. It works fine although it is pretty slow in accessing with that much data on the card.

    Thanks, Otis, very much for the info! I thought so, but definitely wanted to double-check with someone who had personal experience with the high-memory card... Also, probably can't go wrong with Sandisk... Thanks again!

    I put a 64gb card in my 840 - dang thing wouldn't start - if I put it in with the phone running (nor recommended), it ran but it took forever to read all the data on the card. Back to 32gb :-)
    I've decided to start giving a crap
    Would you like some?

    Thank you very much for the info! Wow... 64gb, huh??? I probably won't be needing that much storage anytime soon... Lol. Pretty impressive that the 840G still functioned at all, though! How would you rate the overall functionality of the 32gb? I'm considering 32gb, but might opt for 16gb, as I'm mostly interested in speed/performance (balanced with a moderate amount of storage capacity, of course)...

    Not all memory cards are the same. They come in different speed ratings called classes. The higher the class number, the faster the device can read/write information to the card. Right now the maximum is Class 10.

    As long as you stick with a name brand card from a reputable source, you're pretty safe as far as quality goes. Avoid generic cards or buying from fly-by-night sellers because it's possible for unscrupulous sellers to change the size reading on any flash memory. Basically, they cheat you by selling you a 32 GB card when it's actually a 2 GB.

    Hesster, thank you very much for this information! I was unaware... In your opinion, what is the minimum class of card that I should consider for above-satisfactory performance in handling only a moderate amount of data/storage space??? And, are there any reputable sellers on eBay, or should I spend a few more bucks and "steer clear" of that site? Thanks again...

    I have a Patriot class 10 32GB Micro SDHC card in my phone.
    It is an excellent, excellent card and very fast.
    I have all my apps loaded on it thanks to Link2SD (see my sig).

    sonoca you should be able to get a Micro SD card off of eBay for less than 20 bucks. I just bought a new 32GB Micro SD Class10 SDHC card w/ Adapter for $16 99 from eBay. They have great deals all the time, you just got find them.

    I wouldn't trust a card from ebay.
    I've seen too many reports of capacity and speed misrepresentation.

    I have been buying and selling on eBay for years and I've only had one incident where I did not receive it an item. I believe it was a Terminator DVD that I never received. Putting that aside, every single one of my orders always came through without incident. The descriptions of the items were always accurate. If you don't trust eBay, then there's always Amazon.com.

    This discussion is about Micro SD cards, and I wouldn't purchase one from either ebay or amazon.com.
    The only place I ever purchase them is from Tiger Direct.
    I've never had a problem with anything I've purchased from them.

    I have also purchased a lot of stuff from ebay (and amazon.com) and not had any problems, but I always do my research first.

    Thanks, guys, for the input and advice... More "food for thought"... Like the next person, I'm always lookin' for the most "bang for my buck"... And, while I am, indeed, thorough in my research and "doing my homework", too, I also realize that one still needs to be careful out there in their dealings...

    I put a 32GB (Sandisk) card in my Tracfone LG840G and the opening screen came up "SIM Rejected". ... went back to 2GB and the phone works again.

    Tracfone tech support did not help: "maybe the phone not support to much memory"
