How Much Music are you putting on your iPhone?
I have a pretty big library of music. Around 17 Gigs of it...I'm just curious how much music are people going to place on their iphone, if any at all? I may just put a little on it when I get it tomorrow...couple gigs maybe....
I'm getting the 32 Gig...but I've never had an iphone before and coming from the storm 2...I have no idea how music and apps affect the speed and battery of my new phone. Thoughts?

Well I'll be throwing on about 9gigs of only music and about 10 in video (Had a 30gb IPOD Classic). I have friends who have the ATT version of the iphone that state battery life is good when hearing only music because the display will dim conserving battery life. Speed will really stay the same as long as you don't have too many apps running at the same time. The only time battery life gets bad is when watching videos.

I ordered the 32GB for this exact reason. I'm going to have at least 15GB in music alone, who knows where that will be after all my apps, pictures, and HD videos are on there?
As for battery life, music doesn't kill it much at all, especially if you lock it while you're playing it.
The iPhone 4 actually has outstanding battery life, so you shouldn't really worry. You're fine.

I have almost 92 GB of music. About 20 Music videos and 36 movies and a lot of TV shows. So I will probably about 2 or 3 GB of music, put a few of my favorite music videos, movies and TV shows. I definitely will convert my music to 128kbps so that I can fit more on iPhone 4. I have also almost completely filled my iPod Classic (160 GB). I have about 12 GB left on it and that's after converting all my music to 128 kbps all my music. I also want to make sure that there is a enough room for apps, updates, photos, video recording, text messages, email and whatever else that takes up space on the iphone.

This will be tricky for me . . I have over 100g of music on my iTunes and will have to be selective on what to put on my iPhone.
Question for current iPhone owners:
Can I create a playlist now, name it "iPhone music" and sync/transfer that playlist onto the iPhone when I get it?

I have 7.9GB on my iPod touch and might be putting more on my iPhone 32GB, or putting movies/tv shows on as well. I have 1.36GB in apps right now as well. My current music library is 12.5GB, but my music is also mostly Apple Lossless, I could convert to 128k when it gets put on but I have the space for now.

I have over 35 GB on my iPod Classic 80GB right now, so I'll be converting all my 320 bitrate songs to 128 to fit. I'll probably go through my library and delete certain songs as well. It will be a tight fit with apps installed. I may have to go with a cloud-based gps app like garmin due to space reasons.

Probably between none at all and a playlist or two because I have a huge music library (was edited down to near 80gb) but I also have a pretty new 32gb iPod touch that I have about 2/3 full with the stuff I really want to listen to. I can just use that if I want something that isn't on the phone, or use youtube, Pandora or iheartradio on the phone if I want to listen to music. I'd rather save the space for apps that I'd like or just keep the phone pretty clean and simple
I plan on getting the 16gb phone.
