I have 5200 songs on iTunes.

I'm guessing I will have to make
a reduced number in the folder
for the 16gb iPhone.

Anybody know about how many?

On my 8GB iPhone, I have had just over 1400 songs, all of them bought on iTunes. Most of them were 128 KBPS and about 100 were 256 iTunes Plus. So that would mean about 2800 on a 16GB.
wow you spent all that on iTunes... try limewire... I only bought like 3 songs and rest were free

he's a cop - he's nit going to be using limewire.


but still - $1386?
I actually have purchased 2507 songs from iTunes but I didn't pay $2507.

Allot of those songs came from:

Complete Led Zeppelin - 165 songs
Complete Depeche Mode - 633 songs (I think)
Complete Bob Dylan - 740 songs (I think)
Complete U2 - 467 songs (I think)

Total songs: 2005
Paid: $646

Regardless of how much you have spent, that seems like a small ammount of songs on that large of a space. i have 2.8 gigs currently on the phone just for music, and it is at 694 songs, which roughly translates to 1000 for every 4 gigs i use. So you "should" be able to set aroud 4000 if you are lucky. but that is just by my estimate...

woah man give me a break
because he is a cop you assume he wouldn't use a p2p network
Being a cop is just a job, doesn't change your moral choices
for some, being a cop means they WILL do it because they can get off easy. not saying this is the case but i know a few cops around here that like to throw their badge weight around.
but basically my friend has a 16GB ipod touch and i have a little over 4000 songs and she had to go through every song and pick what she wanted for a playlist because they wouldn't fit.

The newest version of iTunes has an option to send music to the iPhone in only 128k bitrate. iTunes will do the conversion on the fly (the songs in your library retain their original bitrate). If you are using the stock earbuds, you shouldn't be able to tell a big difference. At 128k bitrate, the OP should be able to fit his entire library onto the iPhone.
In iTunes, the option appears in the main screen when you connect your phone to iTunes (the same screen where you "check for updates".

Good if you are interested in quantity of music instead of quality of the individual files.
