    anyone crazy like me and pick up the 64gb? i honestly don't know how 32 or even 16 is enough for people.

    ive had a pipe dream of a 64gb since the 3gs.

    I got the 64gb white model. Im super paranoid about running out of space. Will I need all of it? Maybe, maybe not. However, I'd rather have it and not need it vs. not having it at all.

    I decided to go with the 64 gb this time because I can stream through bluetooth to my car and want to have more stuff with me (audiobooks, conferences, etc)

    I travel a lot. (and I live in Hawaii with a lot of volcanos, waterfalls, and other nice things to look at.)

    The iPhone 4s has a really great camera and can do 1080p video.

    If I'm in Kyoto, or Shanghai, shooting video of cool stuff, I want to make sure I have a lot of room for a few hours of 1080p HD video. I know iCloud will help, but if I'm roaming internationally, I don't think I want to be messing with 4GB movie files. I'll keep them in the phone until I'm on WiFi or in USB striking range of my Mac.

    That's why I got 64gb.

    Honestly, before I saw the details of the new camera, I was planning on getting just 16gb and using iCloud for most everything.

    32GB was way more than I need, but I got the 64GB anyway. I'm always looking to upgrade to latest model every year so I get the top of the line model. It's easier to resell and get top dollar.

    I sure did too. I've got > 1200 songs (most of which are .wav files >40MB each), 100 apps, 100s of photos, etc on my 32GB 3GS that I've had since June 2009 when it launched. Given that, plus the many more apps I'ma download now that I have the A5 chip and the retina display, as well as my ever growing library of music and videos that I'll shoot in 1080p HD, yeah I figured 64GB was the way to go, since I'ma have this phone for the next 2 years.

    I'm still on AT&T, where I've been since Feb 2008 with the original iPhone, and got the black version. I got to keep my existing plan with no qualms and I'm not complaining one bit :)

    I'd be getting a 1TB model if hey had one. 4GB capped plans and 3G speeds make the cloud impractical for me.

    Definitely got the 64GB. My music folder alone is 16GB, plus there are shows and movies I'll be able to drop in, just so i can have instant access no matter where I am.

    I got a white 64 GB for Verizon. This is my first iPhone since the original one. I figured I might as well go big.:D

    Yep. 64GB.

    I expect to make use of iCloud's documents feature quite often and some of my Keynote files get big (very big). And since they'll automatically sync to my iPad and iPhone, I don't want to run up against space constraints since I'm at about 7GB free on my current 32GB iPhone 4.

    I couldn't fill 64GB if I tried. All my music/apps/videos I want come out to around 20GB.

    Had the iPhone 4 32GB and last week I put all my pics and videos into iPhoto b/c I kept getting "low-memory" and couldn't update iOS 5 apps. Went with 64GB to remedy the situation...:cool:

    AT&T still my same carrier...

    I bought a 64 GB black iPhone 4S.

    Why? Why not. It's only money, I can always make more money.

    I also ordered the 64... hate that the price is so high, but i have so much music that even this won't hold nearly all of it, so i want capacity so i can retire my ipod classic. oh well.

    I have 32gb black iPhone 4. I ordered a 64gb black 4s. Now I'm wondering if I should have got a white 64gb since it's different. Anyone else?

    White 64GB with At&t, coming from a 3GS 32GB...
    I figured I will have it for the next 2 years, and I better not regret a lower capacity later on.
    I also plan on using the 1080p video a lot, so the more the better.

    I have 27GB of music, 51GB of movies and 11GB of apps.

    I win :D

    Hehe, I only ever sync about 1/10 of my movies, about 3/4 of my music and about half of my apps though :) Being a DJ requires a lot of high quality audio though, I calculated my music files at an average of 11-12MB per song.

    Anyway, yes, I am getting the 64GB iPhone 4S. There's no other way to do it!
