iPhone 16GB or 32GB?

I'm going on Saturday to finally get my iPhone 3GS, but I'm debating whether to get a 16GB or a 32GB. 16 would probably be good enough for me, but I don't want to be stuck with 16 if I need more than that. I don't have too much music right now, maybe 200 songs, more will be added of course. I'll most likely have a lot of apps and I'd like to be able to play a full length movie at some point for a road trip etc.

What does everyone have? Opinions? Pros/Cons?

Pros, more capacity for EVERYTHING. I started with just music but now have my iPhone loaded with tons of pictures that I sync'd from my computer along with movies and podcasts. Cons, price. The 32GB isn't cheap but I wish I had gone with it now. Enjoy.

I went with the 32GB. I figured I'd kick myself for getting the smaller one later on down the road.

I went from a 8gb 3G to the 32gb 3GS. If you're going to spend the money, might as well go ahead and spend the extra $100 for double the capacity.

that's what i think as well. i got my wife a 16gb 3g first, which was the largest capacity that they had at the time, and she filled that thing up with a quickness. she has a 32gb 3gs now (as do i) and i'm sure that she'll upgrade to a larger one when they come out because she's quickly filling that one up too. she has tons of music!

I would seriously wait... until at least next week. They're debuting another iphone on the on the 27th of this month. It might be just a software difference... it might be something bigger than that.

You'll feel like an idiot for buying one now when it will be outdated in 60 days.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll load my phone with a bunch of stuff. I've saved the money for it, so I might as well spoil myself

That's what I was thinking too.

Certainly wouldn't hurt to wait until next week but most of the rumors I've been hearing also point to a new iPhone OS (4.0) version that has a lot of ties to the iTablet that they are talking may get it's debut next week. I think the new OS is more likely than a new iPhone right now.

Better buy some Apple stock now LOL!

I just skimmed though that article quickly; but looks like it's saying there will be a 4.0 OS update for the phone, which would apply to the 3GS I'm getting. Did I miss something else though?

I did read the other day that there may be a 4G iPhone this summer. But I think I'd be happy with a 3GS for a couple of years while the 4G's price drops by the time I'm ready to upgrade.

i went ahead and took the plunge and upgraded to 3.1.2...there's really nothing that i can see better than 3.0.1, but you can easily get the tethering back. it's supposed to have voice dial over bluetooth, but i haven't searched around to find it and try it yet.

I've got a 16Gb iPod Touch and I've got a 1000+ songs, 10 dvd's on it, a bunch of apps, my complete phonebook & address book and still have several gig worth of space left on it... If you're using more then that then you spend way too much time on your phone IMO.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

For those that travel, movies for plane rides are a must, I also drive a lot so I've got a LOT of music, books can be had, poscasts, etc. I bought this hoping I won't have to buy another new phone for a long while. I have apps and games for the kids, etc. Hopefully it will last a few years.

I went from the 8gig 2g to the 32gig 3gs... With 32gigs I can keep enough music on it that I sold my ipod to pay for the difference. I like being able to gym etc and just having my phone with me...

That's pretty much what I'm aiming for.

I got a 32g 3gs a couple weeks ago because I dropped my bb in some oil. I'm still finding out shit I can do with this thing. I'm still trying to figure out how to load some apps that "I made" onto it without having to jb. If anyone knows how, hit me up. I love it. It only took me about a day to get used to the keyboard.

I'm afraid it'll probably take me a while to get used to the keyboard. I have a Voyager right now, and it has a full keyboard that are actual buttons, easy to type. But the iPhone is not fingernail sensitive, and I use my nails for everything. I'll most likely be doing the 1 finger poke typing for a while lol

I already knew that, but it doesn't mean it'll happen. Plus, I don't like buying brand new, just released phones... let em' work out the glitches/bugs and let the price drop a bit.

Well more than likely it will happen. They've done so every year why not now? But you are right as far the glitches/bugs but it was just an idea.

for sure get the 32 gig, it resells for more, so spend the extra hundred bucks and sell it for 200 more down the road.

If I had more patience, I MIGHT be able to wait lol But I've been waiting for almost a year for my Verizon contract to end so I can get an iPhone. I just can't wait anymore! ha ha

That's also another upside to it, which was taken into consideration. I'm definitely going with the 32GB tomorrow.

I would wait... be patient. This is THE phone you'll have to live with for the next 2 years which means by then you'll be 3 generations out of date.

Yes there will be an OS upgrade for existing phones but there will be a hardware change on this iphone. Not major, but worth waiting for.

I'm actually ok with being a bit "out of date", it's not like it'll be considered a dinosaur or anything lol. Like I said previously, I don't prefer to have brand new technology anyway. So if the new iPhone is a phone I really want, I can wait until next year to get one. No biggie.

I appreciate everyone's input. Thanks all!
