I think a lot of people are in denial about what thy could or could not afford so they are tearing down the resell value of the 64 gb. I learned from the iPod era that newer models always make a previous obsolete. So when that iPhone5 does decide o come out and it comes out in 32, 64, 80gbs... Which if history repeats itself with apple (it does), nobody will rally settle for a 16gb iPhone in resell value.
Coming from an Android, I can tell you resell values fluctuate.

I thought about it, but opted out simply because I have an 80GB Ipod which holds the majority of my music and I won't use my Iphone at work (work in a dairy with lots of water) so my Ipod is still ideal to me in some situations. When I go to the gym I think I will load up my favorite sets of songs for working out and go there, may regret it in the future but doubt it. Only have about 5gb of music cycles (switch it up every so often) that I listen to anyways. Most of my friends have the 32GB or 16GB (guys with 16s are hating I think) but the ones with 32GB don't regret it at all.

I got mine with Verizon at a time when Apple and Best Buy weren't even taking back orders, from hhgregg. It was the last 64GB in Frederick, MD! It is black, but I would have taken white if that's all they had. I didn't even ask for a lower storage capacity iPhone. I've been waiting for years for 64 gigs of storage! I'm so happy Apple decided to bump up the storage, I would have waited for the next upgrade and continued to use my 3GS if they hadn't. Why? Because I am tired of having to delete music or photos to make room for new apps, plus I can finally keep a few movies and TV shows along with my 27 gigs of music, plus like Rene said in one of the blog posts if you're paying approximately $2,000 over a two-year service contract anyway, you might as well get the best phone available for that time period--there's no such thing as a free phone.

It's funny, I went from an iPod Classic with all the space i needed and a Treo, to the iPod Touch and a Blackberry which forced me to sacrifice space, regularly moving songs on and off which annoyed the hell out of me.
Then the 64 gb Touch was released followed by the Droid (I'm tied to Verizon through my company). And I regularly carried 2 devices wishing I could get an iPhone one day. Then Verizon did it, and I finally got what I wanted all along.....1 device! But i was left once again I shuffling songs and apps around. And downgrading the quality to 128kbps.
Then they announced the 4S. As I followed that live blog, I kept repeating over and over in my mind....PLEASE give me the 64, please give me the 64. I didn't care about any other feature on this device. So for me, I simply got what I was REALLY hoping Apple would offer all along. This for me is the perfect device.

My 64 GB is actually 57.42 GB available. Is everyone else's that size too? Wonder where the 7 GB went? I know the iOS is part of that but 7 GB worth?[/QUOTE]
its format reasons you never get full 64GB on any storage device if you did the phone wouldnt be able to see the 64GB its like a computer hard drive when you put windows on it and its a 160GB do you still have 160GB? no you have 128GB

I got the 64gb in white.
1) It was all Verizon had left unless I wanted to wait until 10/31 (I got it 10/18)
2) I sold my 32GB iPhone 4 for $348 on eBay, so why not?
3) My 32GB was full the second I activated it back in February
On a side note, love the phone, don't so much love the crappy battery, but I'm dealing with it. I got the iPhone for $399...fun fact about my state: they charge you tax based off of the retail price of the phone, NOT what you pay for it, so I definitely didn't love paying $55 in taxes, thats for sure!

I had the iphone 4 in 16gb... i found i was always running out of space and i had to remove apps or music or movies to add stuff.
I wanted to get 32gb, but i ended up getting a great deal on the 64gb so i bought that
it is fantastic i have put some albums, lots of pics and some movies.
I have tons of space available and as i am taking pictures (so far 1563 pics) i have no reason to worry about space (yet).
