Well, not remorse really, just wondering if I ordered the right phone. I currently have the iPhone 3g 8GB that I have had almost 3 years with AT&T. I ordered the black 16GB figuring I would have no need for the 32GB. I currently don't have my music on the iPhone, but now actually go to the gym, so figured I might as well add music. My car has Sirius radio, so I almost always listen to that while driving. So with that in mind, I can just change up my music on the phone as needed.
Now I keep thinking maybe I should have purchased the 32GB, but really didn't want to spend the money. The biggest thing I am second guessing is if I should have gotten the white instead of the black. I like to use a silicone case like on my 3g, so the white might look better under the case.
Anyone else regretting which size and/or color they ordered? I guess I have had too long to think about this; I am sure once the phone comes on Friday I will be very happy with what I have!!

loading music is soooooo 3 years ago. Pandora, son!
and FWIW you can get a 8g Nano for close to the $100 you are saving in staying at 16g vs 32g. I prefer a 'destructable' MP3 player while at the gym for concerns that I will drop it or drop a dumb bell on it.

Go with your first instincts! If black was what you liked off the bat then that is probably what you will be most happy with. As far as the size, I personally think the 32 gb is probably the best option for size wise but that it just based on my needs. I have never owned an iphone but I do own a touch screen phone and I don't suggest using it for your music supply at the gym for a few reasons, mainly the sweat, drop and theft factors. I personally use my old 30gb iPod video, it has a clip case and if something did happen to it I wouldn't be devistated. I would look into getting a regular iPod for the gym even a nano or a shuffle and leaving your phone off the workout floor. I really think you will be fine with the 16gb considering you're using a 8gb now. With the additional 8gb it will be a few thousand songs and you can always uncheck and check other ones when you sync if you get tired of what's on there

I am sure my 16GB will be enough for my use, just second guessing my choice. I do like to leave all my pictures on my phone, so I wonder if the new camera will use more memory on the phone. I can always move pictures if necessary.
Manny, I'm a middle aged mom, so no heavy lifting at the gym; more like working out on the elliptical :o

I've always gone with 16GB and made it work one way or another. I guess what happens when I run out of room is I go find every app that I haven't touched in weeks, and weed out music I'm tired of. I tend to put games/movies/books/music on the iPad, while storing some music and the rest of my stuff on the iPhone (utilities, tools, etc). I'd kill for a 64GB iPhone though.

I have 4934 items, 15.2 days, 21.74 GB in my iTunes right now. (95% music) I ordered the 32, but I was thinking maybe I should have ordered the 64 just to be on the safe side. I love my music and I am thrilled at the idea of having it ALL at my fingertips whenever I want. So i 'm thinking if I can somehow change my order the day of I'm going to do it. Of course I'm not sure exactly how the cloud and iTunes match really work so maybe I'm just trippin'

if they didn't come with a 64gb model i would have stayed on my iphone4
i like having all my music and apps and movies in one place.
now i can.
before i split my music between an iphone and touch.
as of right now i have
4947 Songs 13.4 Days. 29.12gb
so right there alone i would not have enough space on a 32gb.
not that i would ever listen to all that straight but if i wanted too i could.

You know you have 2 weeks to exchange it...with the iPhone 4 I purchased the 16GB used it for 2 weeks and exchanged it for the 32GB...the only way you will truly know if it's going to work for you is to try it out..
If it isn't enough storage for your needs, just exchange it..

I'm definitely in the small memory + Pandora camp. I do keep some of my own music in the iPod app, but have it set to randomize when I sync. That way I always have something fresh to listen to, but don't need to keep my whole library available or think about what I want on there at any given time.
