I've seen a 64gb micro sd card working on other android/tab devices and was wondering if its compatible with the Galaxy Tab 7 (Sprint SPH-P100 CDMA version)?

In the past, 64GB SD cards have proved to be problematic with some Tab models. If you do a FORUM SEARCH you will find several threads on this topic. My advice from what I have seen in here, would be to avoid it and get a 32.

thanks for responding so quickly, appreciate it. I already have a 32 gb (I went psx rom crazy) thats borderline maxed out. Im going to purchase the 64 gb regardless because I want to put one in my EVO 4g lte phone, but i figured I'd try it on the tab first. I was wondering if there was some sorta back door formatting nonsense I can do(like some people had to do with other tabs) to get it to work.

update guys, I formatted the 64gb micro sd in my phone, plugged it in to my galaxy tab and it worked! It read 59 gbs, which sounds about right.
