I use to be that person, who desired to have all music/movies/photos/etc. on my iPod/iPhone. But after time i realized all i was doing was wasting my money and space. I hardly ever flip through my photos, only watch videos on long drives (which i now have netflix for). As for music, i like to switch it up a lot. Keeps me on my toes always looking for new music.

Not thrilled at the price for a 64GB version, but that is what I am ordering. I want the storage capacity and this is the ONLY phone on the market today offering 64GB. Combine iCloud and the ability to delete and re-download apps, stream music (if you pay the $24.99) its all worth it to me. Consider this, the Droid Charge was $299 on contract and that had far less storage space so really for $100 more than that you get a lot more.
This is coming from a former Android user.

The only part of the pricing that tweaks me just a tad is that the Nano's price increases $20 for doubling memory...I understand the product line is different, but the memory isn't actually worth the $100 increase unless you truly NEED it. But that's why they make mutliple levels, so we can make that choice.

You really shouldn't be upset with the pricing structure as it is since there are 3 versions now, what you could possibly be upset with is that they decided to keep the 16gb version. The last time Apple increased the cheaper iPhone's capacity (8 to 16gb on 3Gs), they kept the same pricing 199/299. Now that they are selling three versions, 199/299/399 makes sense.
Either way don't buy it if you don't want it!

Well, why didn't they just release the 4s with 32 and 64gb and keep the prices as it was for the iPhone 4 and not even release a 16gb version? This to me would make more sense along with announcing off contract pricing for those that burned through an upgrade to get a phone that worked(9650 from Tour that shouldn't have been given to me) because of the announcement for the 4 was 8 months after for Verizon.

What is up with you guys and trying to silence people who voice any sort of negative opinion? I understand it gets annoying when the forum is inundated with new users or android trolls moaning but that's not me.
After thinking about it I'm ok with the 4S overall, and I'm still going to buy it. But this $399 price on a 2 or 3 year contract (3 here in Canada) is downright insulting to the people who have been buying iPhones every year...
And I think it's incredibly ignorant of them to increase the price of their top-end model when they are already putting out something that most people consider to be 'the same' as the iPhone 4.

I just think its funny that so many of the regular members of this website (and platform) are so upset over the release for one specific reason...the fact the phone wasn't redesigned. You can say it was for this reason or that reason...but when it comes down to it, if the phone had a bigger screen, and all the functionality they showed from the 4S...and had been called a "5" (for whatever insignificant reason that matters)...90% of you guys would be just fine and excited to plop your hard earned green backs down on the table for the new toy.
But keep being upset about it...all the way up to that card swipe and the opening of that fresh new iPhone box. I bet you the moaning stops there...just a hunch.

I know what I use my iPhone for, and 32GB is enough for me (truth be told, 16GB might be enough, but I have a 32 just to be safe).
Unfortunately, I probably won't be getting a 4S, so it's a moot point. I will likely get a refurb 4 instead, depending on cost. My wife wants a 4 so she and our kids can Facetime with her mom, and we have a limited upgrade budget. I like my 3GS, but it's dated and due for an upgrade.

i hesitate to say this, But GOOD. I am glad so many are upset about the $400 cost.
Makes my odds of getting one even better.
I have a 32GB iphone 4. I can sell it as a quick sale to ebay and get $300. I can auction it, and get even more (probably $350-$400). So, at the end of the day, I am trading a one year old phone for a new model with double the sotrage, for less then $100.
I will sell the wifes 3Gs (they are going for about $150).
Anyone else want to whine about the price?? Anyone else want to sell me their old iphones? I dont mind making money.
