All micro SD cards are the same in terms of size and they will all work in your phone. The difference with Micro SD card only comes into play when your looking at capacity and class (read/write speed of the card).

While that's all true, the maximum capacity card the prime can handle is 64mb.

Keep in mind that the usefulness of the card may be limited by the version of Android you are using as well. Pretty good for music and videos you may import from external sources, but apps may not like being moved there.

Speed may be a factor in camera or video operations, but otherwise slower cards will be fine. Never had any problems with any name brand card you can find at Staples or BestBuy when on sale.

Forgot to mention the part Chad did (and it's 64gb not 64mb)

As long as it's a branded SD card you'll be fine. Class 10 is good enough. You don't need to start getting into XDHC and all that nonsense. The read/write speeds carry more weight in dedicated cameras and camcorders.
