    CANADA? eh?
    I have a questions?

    On the 4gb iPhone what is actually left for to use...after the software and actual capacity?

    im just planing out how much music/photos/vids

    right now

    1.95 gig of music(in playlists)
    300mb of short films/videos
    240 photos?

    would that all fit?

    and how much room would 240 photos take on the iPhone?
    ( i created an iPhoto album and its 240 photos? and i need to see how big that is!)

    The free space is 3.49GB on mine, depending on the photo size you shouldnt have a problem

    how many photos could fit into 500mb?

    and is that true that 1gb can hold 15,000 photos on the iPhone?

    Just out of curiosity for you, I unsynced all 101 of the pics I had. My free space went from 2.1gb to 2.2gb. All these pics were taken with a 5mp Canon camera. Im sure the amount of pics it can hold is somewhat determined by the size and quality of the original.

    15,000 to 1gb?? Maybe if they were all shot at 320x240. More like 1000 per 1gb looks like to me.

    Should be Fine

    I have 768 photos on my iPhone and it takes up about 495MB of space. Hope that helps.

    You will have plenty of room for all that. I have 260 pics on my phone and it is only about 150mb. The real question you should ask is whether or not you are ever going to add more music, videos, or photos. You will be able to add hundreds more photos with no problem, but if you plan on adding more videos or music you may want to think about the 8GB.

    The size of the original photos is irrelevant. iPhoto scales all images down to a consistent size before they are copied to your phone.

    The size of the os partition grew from 300 to 500 going from 1.x to 2.x and forward, that picture was from a 1.x firmware. I don't know about the 3.05 though.

    Indeed, it makes several thumbnail versions of each file in different resolutions: 640 x 480, 176 x 220, 130 x 88, and 41 x 30. These are in .jpg format, but are saved in a single file with the extension .ithmb (well, four files, one for each resolution: 640 x 480 are stored in F3008_1.ithmb, 176 x 220 in F3009_1.ithmb, 130 x 88 in F3011_1.ithmb, and 41 x 30 in F3004_1.ithmb). The iPhone uses a database file in the Photos folder to tell it where each image is in these ithmb files.

    Yes, upon release of the iPhone in 2007, it came in both 4GB and 8GB capacities.
