Internal memory question
My brother is getting a used iPhone 4 this week. It's been restored to factory settings. My question is how much space does just the iOS and whatever apps come with the phone? He has about 40 apps he wants to load andhe isn't sure he will have enough space for music. He has 5 gb of music toload. Will it all fit?
Also, is it true that the phone will get slower with the more space u take up or it has nothing to do with speed??

Believe you me, if all he has is 5gb of music then he wouldn't any issue downloading 40 apps. My iphone 4 32 gb has (I'm actually looking at the numbers here): 13.7 gb of music, .22 gb of video, .53 gb of photos (around 300 5mp), 11.2 gb in apps, .06 gb of books (10 or so last i looked), .94 in other and 3.2 free.
All of that (if my math is correct) adds to 29.06 which infers either my 32gb of space is false or the ios system takes up 2.94 gb of space. not too shabby if i do say so myself!

He has plenty of room for 5GB of music, hundreds of apps, and then some.
Is there a hard number limit anymore?
