    Hey everyone,

    The wife and I have decided to each get an iPhone. The only thing left to decide is which one to get. We're both going to mainly use the phones for contacts, date book, maps, and of course calling!

    We will not be storing a bunch of photos or mp3's on them, but would probably have a small quantity.

    I know OSX kills about 1 gig. I think we'd be OK with the 4 gig. What do you guys think? Is is good to have the extra memory just to be safe, or is the 4 enough for our purposes?

    once you have it, I promise you you'll utilize the 8 gig.

    Although 4 gig is OK, I strongly recommend getting the 8 gig version.

    Totally agree with you guys, you will ALWAYS regret getting the smaller capacity once you hit the point you have to start deleting stuff. I know I did when I bought all those Mp3 players before the 30gig iPod.

    Thanks for the advice. I kinda thought the same thing. Just wanted some second opinions. What the hey, why spend $1000 when I can spend $1200......:rolleyes:

    LOL, it is a lot of money, but it's worth it my friend. Well for now, probably be a dirt cheap one within a year.

    I know so many people that say "I'll just wait 'till it's cheaper". I know they will come down in price eventually. I bet they don't get much cheaper as soon as people think they will though.

    Price cuts can take a while to take place, but knowing Apple, we will be looking at a few different models of iPhone eventually, like the iPod, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle.

    Ended up getting two 8-gigs. I've had them for two weeks now and absolutely love it! Guess I'll now be getting the store credits too....:mad:

    Yeah, I wonder if they will try and only give you it for one of the phones to be cheeky. Tell us what happens.
