    Default How much memory?

    Moving over from Blackberry and need recommendation on how much memory to purchase. 16, 32 or 64?
    Will be used primarily for business. Is ther any way to add memory storage after you purchase and what is the cost?

    No there is not. So be sure to select the storage size you think you will need now and perhaps in the future.

    *And for simple business use, 16 would be fine.

    I personally use 32 which works for me. I by no means have all my music on it, and I have maybe 50 apps or so and still have 12 Gb left. The music takes up 9.2 Gb. That is around, well, I can't see how many songs now, sorry.

    Based on your statement the 16GB should be enough. I have a 32 and I have a lot of music and photos and still have 19GB Free. I use it mostly for business too, not a game player. I thought I would use more, but never did... however the iPad is a totally different issue.

    Up to you... keeps resale higher and you have the buffer. $100 difference.

    I almost always got a 32GB, but this last time, with cloud storage and what not, i never used it all. The problem i have with trying something smaller is in the case i DO need it, not having it is worse than not using extra memory.

    I've always purchased the 32GB and will again this year. Don't need 64GB and afraid that 16GB won't be enough. Drop another c-note on "space insurance".

    I got a 64GB 4s and i think it's overkill. Going for a 32GB.

    I purchased a 64gb iphone 4s and it was overkill, the 32gb will be just fine for me.

    I've had 16GB on the past two iPhones (3G and 4) but will be going to 32 GB this time. It seems to be the sweet spot and the extra $100 spent will probably be mostly recouped at resale time.
