    Of course apple offers the 16g and 32g but rarely are they ever exact. I guess it's hard to fit all those bytes accurately into a device? I don't know.

    But anyway I bought the 32 gb model of the iphone 4

    My iphone 4 has 29.06 gigs.

    That's almost 3 whole gigabytes that aren't there. Thats a lot of content. I have already about 26 gb of movies and music on my itunes. So that doesn't leave a lot of room even though I got the biggest model possible.

    But at least my phone is awesome! It's just a little frustrating.


    Anyway, please post how many gigabytes your iphone 4 ACTUALLY has.

    Wikipedia:

    Consumer flash drives typically have sizes measured in powers of two (e.g. 512 MB, 8 GB). This includes SSDs as hard drive replacements [citation needed], even though traditional hard drives tend to use decimal units. Thus, a 64 GB SSD is actually 64×1024³ bytes. In reality, most users will have slightly less capacity than this available, due to the space taken by filesystem metadata.
