This product is not compatible with several cell phones. I have the LG 8300 that I just purchased and after I put the card in the phone it stopped working. I called Kingston tech support and I just can't believe how they handled this situation. They are fully aware of the problem and have been aware since September. The card they have the trouble with is the 1GB (probably one of the most common purchased). The best thing was they are totally aware of the situation and they said there is nothing they could do about it at this time. If I returned the card under warranty they would give me an exact replacement which he mentioned would be useless to me until they discover the fix to this problem. You would think they would accomodate you with something different because of the trouble but I guess that would be too nice. He recommended I buy the Kingston 512 mb because he said that one would work. No thanks, Kingston is off my list and will keep it's reputation for selling junk. I do have emails out to Amazon, Eek Technology? (the merchant) and I am expecting a call from a Kingston Manager in the next day. I will post a follow up once I hear back. I just wanted everyone to be aware of this before they purchased. If you are still considering Kingston at least visit the site or call first to make sure your device is compatible.

Update: I talked to Kingston and it looks like they figured out the problem. They are saying the "controller" they were using for the card was bad. They recently changed manufacturer/supplier for that part of the card and have not experienced any complaints so they feel the problem is resolved. I received my new card and it works great. The guy I spoke to was very helpful. If you call them with the tiny number on the back of the micro card they will tell you if it is one of the cards with problems. If your card works for you than there is no need to call. They will exchange the card with one that works if yours was fried like mine.

This card works perfectly in my Samsung A707 cell phone, aka the Cingular Sync.

It's worked perfectly in three of these phones.

The previous card, a Sandisk 1GB, did not work properly. Every time you powered on the phone you had to re-seat the Scandisk card for it to be recognized properly. Others reported having this problem in a number of forums, although Sandisk wasn't explicitly mentioned, I think.

I ordered 2 of the 1GB Kingston microSD cards when I ordered my Cingular CU500 phones from Amazon, but they don't work in that phone. Buyer beware, there's are reason why the price is so low. They may work fine in other devices but not the CU500. I bough 2 1GB SanDisk microSD from a brick and mortar, so I could return them without shipping/restocking if they didn't work either, for 24.99 each and they work fine.

I bought two of these for my LG CU500 phones. The phone will not read the cards. From what I hear the only safe bet for the CU500 is the SanDisk.

I got this card to use in my Samsung cellphone for Christmas. Popped it in. It didn't work. Popped it into another Samsung cellphone I had around the house. It didn't work. Took one of the phones and this memory chip to my cellphone provider (Alltel). They tried it. It didn't work. They tried some "off brand" chip they had on site. Their's worked!

Rather than return it to Amazon I decided to call Kingston to see how they would handle this problem. I'm pleased to say, they handled it EXTREMELY well. I spoke with them last Wednesday about my problem, and 2 days later, shipped by FedEx 2-Day Delivery, I now have a new card. And this one WORKS!

They even paid return postage for the defective chip. Can't beat that. Oh yeah, it comes with a LIFETIME warranty, so if this one goes bad for some reason, they'll replace it without question!

Great service from Kingston. I'd buy their product again if I were in need of another chip.

Mine arrived today March 21, 2007.

It is the coveted "Made in Japan" version fully compatible with the R4 v1.07 kernel, Moonshell 1.6 etc.

Be still my heart.

The low price for these memory cards is so low that I think it might be scaring people away. That's a shame, because the card I bought for my mobile phone works extremely well. I've had no issues with it whatsoever. I looked at my favorite 'deal' sites first, but the next best price I could find was more than twice the cost of this. Even with shipping added, it was still the best deal. Whatever Kingston is doing to be able to offer such low prices is not having an effect on the quality. I plan to buy more memory expansion products from them in the future.

I bought two; they work great on my BB Pearls. At about half the price of Sandisk, and with my experience with Kingston memory and customer service, it was an easy choice.
