I have tried two cards on FR:

Kingston C4 8 GB
Kingston SDC4/8GB 07

I don't recommend this one. It gave i/o errors when accesing the card with low 
GSM coverage and/or GPRS connection stablished.

I'm currently using the following one, with default speed values. I have tried 
intense I/O while connected to GPRS, with low and high coverage, and I had not 
corruption/lockup problems.

Trascend C6 16GB

On the back of the card:

258883 0698
8281BB 16G 010S1
