    I know that we all saw that the iPhone 4S would be dropping to free on contract. I just got an E-Mail from Apple with some sales stuff in it for work and it said that an iPhone 4S 8GB version will be available on the 20th. That is going to be the free device on contract. Just a fun fact for ya.

    Makes sense. Same thing they did with the iPhone 4, 3Gs and 3G. Apple just following their model from over the years.

    That's a great deal, considering that most (maybe all?) of the other phones that are free on contract are crap, lol.

    Not as of yet. The 4S will only be available with 8GB storage come Sept. 20.

    The "free" iPhone has historically been an 8GB version of the device 2 generations behind the current flagship...

    Not a deal at all. With the phone os taking up space the 8GB is more of a 6GB.

    Most, actually all, of my friends that have iPhones only have music and pics stored, anyway. I have about 500 mp3s on my Nexus 4, and that only uses about 2-3GB of space. Also, with a lot of people using music streaming apps, there's less of a need to have massive amounts of storage. In my opinion, 6GB is probably more than enough, for the average consumer.

    To be able to leave a carrier store, with a capable handset that provides a great experience, for FREE... Kinda hard to see how that's not a great deal.

    That's my opinion, anyway.

    There wasn’t. Until now. The previous "free" iPhone was the 8GB iPhone 4. Before that it was the 8GB iPhone 3G S.

    8 GB With an 8mp camera and 1080p video is going to suck. I remember 16 gigs filled up crazy fast with the 4s I don't even want to think about how fast an 8gb will fill up. Better keep your laptop handy if you intend on using the camera app. PSA over.

    The 4S has none of that's. It's a 5mp camera with 720p recording.

    Yeah 8gb is crap. I have a 16gb iPhone 4, and it is full... I have to juggle and delete stuff pretty often to put any new content on her. I was hoping they'd keep at least the 16gb 4S, as I was going to buy an unlocked one for $450... but I'm not gonna spend that kind of money on 8gb.

    Not what Apple says.

    iPhone 4s - Buy iPhone 4s with Free Shipping - Apple Store (U.S.)

    "8MP iSight camera with HD video recording.
    Advanced optics, a custom lens, and an 8-megapixel sensor let you capture high-quality photos. And you can shoot beautiful movies in full 1080p HD."

    You're right! I remember when I upgraded to the 4S, that was one of the reasons why.

    I really don't think 8gb will be enough for most people, especially over the life of a 2 year contract. I bought a 8gb iPhone 4 on Sprint last summer when I broke my Pre 2 & needed a new phone right away. It was only $50 at Best Buy, and I had a $50 gift card, so I was like, I'll take it!

    Man, did those 8 gigs fill up fast. It got so tiresome trying to micro-manage the space too. Constantly monitoring the photos I wanted to keep on the phone, the music I wanted on it, which apps to update. Sometimes I wouldn't even update apps because I had no space. Another drawback was that whenever apple pushed out an update, I would have to update the phone via iTunes, because there wasn't enough available memory to do it OTA.

    The final straw for me was when I was at a friends wedding, and was recording a video and the phone ran out of memory. By the time I deleted some pics to free up space, I missed the moment I was trying to record. Not too long after that, I went on eBay and bought a 64gb iPhone 5 off contract. Couldn't be happier.

    Everyone is bagging on the 8GB "free" iPhone... but in case you haven’t been paying attention, the "free" iPhone has been an 8GB version all along. This is nothing new, and it’s certainly not a surprise. To anyone. The 3G was an 8GB version. The 3GS was an 8GB version and the iPhone 4 is/was an 8GB model. So now, the 4S will be, too.

    Different strokes for different folks. I have a 16gb 4s. I still have over 10gb of space remaining. I'm sure 8gb will work for some. I'm thinking about getting one for my wife.

    I think the difference is, in my opinion, that the older iPhones, 3G, 3GS, and 4... were available as 8gb models... The 4S was never available as a 8gb model. 16gb was as small as they came. So, it just feels like a rip to intentionally reduce the storage capacity now that it is the "free" model, that isn't free if you want it unlocked. $450 for a sandbagged 8gb 4S is a rip.

    I am certain that the iPhone 4 was not available in the 8GB version prior to the introduction of the iPhone 5, and the iPhone 4's ultimate relegation to the "bargain bid".

    However, this whole thing quickly becomes a financial issue... vote with your wallet and simply don’t do the deal. Scrounge up the $99 to go with the iPhone 5C.

    Not that it matters. I thought the iPhone 4 was available in 8gb.

    For the record I wasn't bagging on it merely making an observation. The fact if the matter is the demographic the 4s is targeted at now 8 gig will probably believe than enough, what do flip phones usually come with? 256 Megs? 8GB is a huge step up, if your moving from another smartphone to the 4S 8gb I would just suggest saving $99 bucks for the 5C or you might not get the experience your deserve.
