    How does memory on the iphone work? Is it simple like ipods? I have a droid incredible with a 16gb card inside. It's sorta confusing. It goes phone memory, 8gb internal memory, then 16gb external memory.

    ...there ought to be a 12-Step program for that
    There's an app for that

    Anyway, I'm getting the 16GB because I'm a poor college student (and when I get it in May, I'll be a poor college graduate), and because I suck at organizing my music, I make like, three playlists and sync that, so it's never very much. I also get really sick of songs quickly, so I have to change it up. I've only got around 4 gigs on my Touch right now, and I've never needed more. 16GB will work for me!

    Question: Will a 32 hold its resale more than a 16? Or do they both depreciate equally?
    Surprisingly, storage space rarely factors into resale value. If you look on Craigslist or EBay at used iPhone/Touch then whether it's 8th or 32gb then the prices are usually the same.

    That said, we're buying devices that will cost $100/mo to operate. So skimping for 16gb just to save a few bucks is probably going to bite you later. HD video recording, apps, music, apps, video, apps and apps tend to take a lot more space than you expect.

    I think that is wrong! I do a lot of selling and buying phones on Ebay and 8gb, 16gb & 32gb iPhones do not go for the same price. Storage does make a difference. I don't see 32gb 3GS going $150.00 and anyone who would pay over to $300 for a 8gb iPhone (which is what 32gb iphones are selling for now) has issues!!!

    Agree more storage space= higher resale value

    if you dont need the 32 gigs then dont spend the extra 100 bucks i mean you will still get good resale for a 16 gig if you wanted to sell it later on

    I look at it this way. I'm going to pay retail whatever that may be. What's an extra $100 bucks! LOL maybe next year or when the next one comes out they will have a 64GB version!

    The iPhone has a great camera (for a cell phone), and shoots 720p video. That can chew up a ton of space. Going on a family vacation with a 32gb (minus your content) HD camcorder is nice.

    you all got my thinking with the HD video. That 32g might be the way to go. With not camera on the Ipad1 I should not use that to compare how much memory I'll use.

    well if you have an ipad why not put all your movies on that and then use the iphone for just music/apps and pictures. I mean otherwise what is the point of having the ipad?

    I'll be getting the 16GB model. I've never gotten into putting music on my phone and I have an iPod Shuffle for when I work out at the gym, which is the only time I really use a music player.

    Pretty sure I'm going with the 32 GB. I have an upgrade available, but in order to reduce the price even further I'm selling my 32 GB iPod Touch 3rd Gen. on eBay. Have about 10 gigs of music on there already.

    Buy the biggest you can or you may regret it later. Apps are big. I have apps that are 250, 500, 750MB's, 1GB alone. The HDR pics and HD video use a lot of memory. I cant tell you how many people I see regret it later

    Definitely go with the 32. It never hurts to have extra space.. But I guess if you are only a causal user then a 16GB might suffice.
