If you're talking about data speed, there is no 4G iphone yet.

I just got a 16G iPhone 4s yesterday. Loaded all my pics and music in last night and didn't put a dent in the G's.

32g will hold 4-5 hundred or so albums (cd), 1500 pics and short videos, a couple of movies and a dozen or so apps and still have a a couple of g's left over.

16 will hold lots of music and pictures. If you want to down movies, big files,etc. Then you might need more. Just bought a Iphone 4s.

Of course, the Iphone 5 is rumored to come out in, June/July.

Just coming to grips, with the 21st century.

16 is the smallest I would go with no movies and only pics and music. The Siri is kinda neat

I vote 32. I have 16 on my 3GS and is it basically full with a fair amount of music, some pics, video clips, 1 kids movie and some games / apps. I would like to have some more music for flights. I'll get 32 next time (maybe in the next 3-6 months) for sure. Not sure I could pay for the 64 though.

I use Pandora a lot, and now iheart radio some, which is very nice. I call it my "hillbilly satellite radio".

I don't really see me putting movies on it. I would just keep a small amount of pictures and apps. I really like pandora and some other apps.

Once you starting using the cool apps you'll start using apps... chewing up memory... 16gb is easy to fill up...

The only negative with big memory is battery life... if you start using your phone to do more it will be on longer and battery life will may get affected cuz you're using your phone more....

I wound up getting Motorola Droid Pro because battery life was Paramount and I don't always have access for a charge.

While I have the 16gb myself, I know that I will never have the need for more as all of my music is provided through Rhapsody and other similar apps. If you are confident you will never go over then get what you need. If you do store everything on the device then get the 64gig.

Ditto here and not a dent with all the pics and music and is very similar in operation to our 32g A real bargain at 49 bucks from Verizon.

Exactly, the only files I store on my phone are aviation charts. For those who use SkyDrive there is an app for iOS. Just be careful on data usage, unless you are one of the lucky ones who has unlimited data grandfathered to your account.

That would be me! Grandfathered. Yeah!!
