Isn't it funny how at first it seems like 16g would be more than you would ever need, but quickly you find yourself wishing for more? I guess size does matter...:(

I wouldn't mind more space, but I don't really need it at this point. I have some music on my phone and four or five movies, but mostly use my iPod for those things. When I don't have an iPod with me and need music, I use Pandora.

My prediction still stays at 32g possibly for the holidays and possibly a red version iPhone.

I'm gonna be mad if a 32G comes out this year.... I'm gonna be mad because I won't get any discounts on it, lol. I bought the 16G only because they ran out of the 8G version. I am so glad I bought the 16G, I only have 7G left and at one point was down to 5G left, with just my songs, ringtones, pictures, and podcasts. I would really love to get my hands on a 32G if we can get a discount on it, but maybe next year...

I wanted a 32 GB iPhone 3G from the beginning but we didn't quite get that lucky. I still have my v1 8 GB as well as my 160 GB Classic so I have no real need for storage space, but it would be nice.

I have the 16gb iPhone now and the 32gb Ipod touch, can't sell the touch yet though as I would be out of space on the iPhone without my touch. Need a 32gb iPhone.

I then think would I buy it, as batery life would die on me a lot quicker as having one device for games and movies and the other for email, sms, internet and phone works really well at the moment.:laugh2:

I don't think I could ever fill my 16gb. 8gb I'd be a bit concerned about but 16gb is more than enough. I cycle my music every few months, no more than a hundred ever. Don't watch movies on iPhone or watch tv shows since it's such a pain to put em on there. Maybe once a good program comes out which doesn't require all video to be converted.

I'm going to agree with the Christmas launch, but it will be done quietly, just like the 16 gig iPhone.
No different colors however. Different colors are focused on the "nano" lines. Major Apple products have little to no color features.

It's not really hard to add/remove media. I'm perfectly fine with 16 GB.

This has always been my point. You can only listen to so much music or watch X number of video at any given time. It's not hard to switch media around.
But it is a personal choice and some like to have it all available.

I have a 16G 3g and still have 11G left. I would have no problem switching music and video in and out from time to time. I have no reason to put every piece of media I own on the iPhone all at once...:)

same as SikShift, I'm good with the 8GB! It's all in one's personal usage patterns and preferences. I don't store huge music and tv shows, etc; just a core group of songs at a time. And I don't do this because I feel I need to conserve; I just don't need to have my whole music library on there. I come from years of PDA usage, and with all the programs I've had, which have been tons and tons, I never once ran out of space, and that was with SD card storage no higher than 2 GB (and internal memory being like 64 MB!) I had photos and MP3 files too, and not even close to running out of space. But if I did want more media files on there at a time, yes, I would have opted for the 16GB.

LOL, you are absolutely right. You know what's even more hilarious is when they finally release the 32gb we'll be dying for the 64gb version. The human creature is never satisfied. :laugh2:

My 16gb is more than enough. I've deleted off apps that were "crapps", I don't watch movies on my phone (just short clips), I mainly use ORB to access all 33,000 music files on my pc (yes I know, I'm a bit of a music junkie), Pandora from time to time, and when I can't get wifi or a strong 3g connection I have about 500 songs on my iPhone. Which leaves me exactly 12gb to figure out what to do with...

16gigs so far is working out great. I finally got both seasons of Dexter on my phone, took up just under 3 gigs. never seemed to have enough room on 8 gig phone. started recording them on dvr when it started but im just now getting around to watch- half way through the first season.
