If I buy a phone without memory or minimal memory, can I change to a memory card that I buy somewhere else? I was thinking of a class 10 32gb or 64gb.

Are there any concerns with doing it this way?

Are you talking about removable storage (microSDXC)? It's not required, and it's expandable up to 64GB.

Without removable storage, you will be using the built-in storage which can be either 16GB or 32GB.

I was thinking of the internal storage then. Should I be buying a phone with a Class 10 storage and when I reach the extent of 16GB or 32Gb, then invest in an external 64Gb? I am upgrading from my $50 nokia so the leap is huge. – Valamas Oct 17 '12 at 0:04
On this page at the bottom is some customization before buying. The memory dropdown appears to be internal memory then. – Valamas Oct 17 '12 at 0:09
Thank you for the help. I understand things now. The selection I am talking about must be external. – Valamas Oct 17 '12 at 0:15
