    Wondering what is a good amount of free space to leave on the iPhone, as it is a mini-computer and all.

    As much or as little as you want, as it has its own separate RAM. However, if you take a lot of pictures, then you may want to leave more.

    I would leave at least a couple hundred MB (0.1-0.2 GB) in case any application needs to save data.

    ye, always good to leave a little bit incase that once-in-a-lifetime picture moment doesn't happen because you can't save the photo!

    That doesn't even make sense... the OP asked how much SHOULD you leave free, not how much DO you have free.

    Before I bought a 16GB 3G, I filled my 8GB almost to its limit... leaving about 30-40MB free. Didn't see any change whatsoever in the performance of the phone.
