    Hi, one of my friends is willing to buy a 4 GB microSD card for his Nokia 5130. What will be the best brand he should go for? Is it Sandisk or Transcend or any other brand?

    I've been using various sandisk cards including some CF ,SD & microSD For years and i none have given me problem.

    Kingstone is also good.

    I'd strongly suggest against transcend.

    Agree with desiibond. Even my local brand works fine & hasn't popped up in 2 years & still going strong.

    If you still want a brand name, I would suggest Sandisk.

    Well then, going for a Sandisk one.
    One more query.. I found from the Nokia website that this phone (Nokia 5130 XpressMusic) supports max upto 2 GB. However, on many sites and forums (such as this one) I found that it can support even 8 GB memory. Have anyone tried using more than 2 GB with this model?

    If it supports SDHC cards then it could very well support an 8GB one. Try before buying. Companies most probably hide these facts so that the consumer cannot exploit the advantages & upgrade to a new handset. Sometimes its done as the phone becomes slow on accepting higher capacity memory cards.

    5130 certainly accepts 8 gb card. I've tested it.

    SanDisk and Verbatim are really good but Kingston is more easily available and cheaper.
    I use Verbatim 4GB MicroSD in my E51.
