Lightbulb Is there anyway to upgrade iPhone 4 storage capacity?

I know you cant add micro sd cards.

I am talking physically changing out the single 32gig chip in there for a 64 or the newer 128?

I am pretty confident in my ability to actually change it out but i would like to know if the iPhone will even recognize anymore memory? Or is there a way to even know this till it is tried?

I am pretty sure the chip is souldered in there but does anybody know if it just snaps in?

Plus where can i buy a 64 or 128 gig chip?

I am being completley serious to! i would absolutly love to be able to hold all me apps, music, and movies at the same time!

Thank you!

I don't even think you can get any chips bigger than 32GB anyway, I mean the 64GB iPod Touch just uses 2 x 32GB chips and not a single 64GB chip

First you’ll need a DeLorean. Then you’ll need to install a flux capacitor….

someone who spells soldered "Souldered" should re-evaluate your confidence in IC replacement. just a thought!!!

1. Get second iPhone 4
2. Buy double sided tape.
3. Adhere the phones back to back.
4. Double the memory.

You're welcome.

Besides, I'd read the forum rules sir.

I did a quick search and it is interesting that the OP's spelling is commonly used.

I still think they edited out the sounds of cracking bones for some of those positions.
