I want to get an iPhone but I'm not sure if 8GB is enough. I have an iPod so i will not be downloading music on to it or downloading any videos. Besides talking on the phone i will probably use it for surfing the web and Facebook and Twitter.

Any feedback would be great!

Thanks,
Denise

    If thats it then 8GB is overkill.
    I still have original iPhone with 4GB and with many hours worth of music (about a days worth) and two movies, and all the apps (Facebook, Twitter, games, reference, etc) I still have space left.

    Music and videos take most, then toss between apps and photos depending how many photos you really want on phone.

    Can I ask why you would continue to use your iPod if you are getting an iPhone? I ask because one of the main reasons I got an iPhone was to have one device instead of carrying around my Nano and a mobile phone.

    Don't ask us, as we aren't sure either. It your phone. It's your lifestyle. Nobody here can tell you if it's enough space or not.

    My friend has two Classic iPods plus an iPhone. His music is already loaded on his iPods and he leaves them in the car for when he's out and about.

    I have a 32gb iPhone 3Gs. I've also got a Classic iPod, however I don't use it anymore. It's more convenient to just worry about carrying one device around. I was hoping for a 64GB iPhone release, however, I do have to admit that I've got plenty of music on the iPhone now to keep me from getting bored and syncing new music has gotten faster/easier than it had been in the past, with the auto genius playlists.

    If you are really going to use it the way you have stated then it should be fine. Thing is, you may change your mind about that after you have used the iPhone.

    I agree with the person above.... But to really answer your question, it's plenty. Of course if you wanted 26 ish gigs of music as well on one device then sell the I-pod and get a 32G I-phone..... and really, why they haven't made a 64G one is beyond me. Have fun with the new phone!

    Exactly. Pandora and other on-line streaming audio apps have certainly helped keep me happy with 32G, but still want the most I can get.
