After having no success with YouTube Mobile or TinyTube, I thought I would go and get a MicroSD chip so I can save TinyTube videos, since the streaming does not work, as well as fill my phone with music and videos. Apparently, the Curve can play .avi’s so if that is the case then this device has totally redeemed itself as a mobile entertainment device.
The 4GB MicroSD chip was $89.99 Canadian (Americans pay more than us now because our dollar is stronger than Drederick Tatum) with a 15% discount at the Telus store for a final price of $86.43 after taxes.
The installation was a simple process. Just open the case, take out the battery, unlock the chip holder, slide in the chip, close the holder and lock it again. When you boot your BlackBerry back up, the chip will be automatically recognized.
Four GB is not very much but considering its size it’s actually amazing. The 8GB had just become available but I wasn’t about to drop $150 on a memory chip.

Here are some pics from the installation:
