    I do.

    I was out and about today on the Apache Trail near Scottsdale, AZ and I ran out of space taking so many pictures and video.

    Coming from an iPhone 4 I should have realized that the 8 MP images, panoramas, and 1080P video were going to take up a LOT more space.

    I also wish I could put more of my music collection on my phone....

    I really wish they had gone 32/64/128 this time. I think that not doing that was the one hardware mistake they made this time.

    I've read that some have exchanged theirs for a 64GB model after running into this issue but with supplies so limited I'm afraid that won't be possible within the 30 day return window....

    Anybody else wish they had a higher capacity iPhone 5?

    Edit: If you already have a 64GB iPhone 5 because that's what you bought originally please don't be a snarky smart ass and reply to this thread. It was meant for those that bought a 16GB or 32GB and are now having second thoughts OR for those that exchanged for the 64 as a result. Thank you.

    We'll see; I had a 32gb 4 and then went to a 16gb 4s (huge mistake) and now I have a 32gb 5. As long as I don't sync tv or movies I think I should be okay, but you're right about the 1080p video being the space killer.

    I don't... Because I went with the 64gb, it is better to have it and no need it, than to need it and no have it...

    I lined up on launch day to grab my phone, was second in line for my apple store and guess what? No 32gb VZW black in stock! So I was forced into getting the 64gb version but I am happy I did now with how much video and pictures I am taking. Definitely wished they upped it to 128 though.

    U had to of taken a **** load of pics and videos to fill 32gb. Even if u had 10gb of other stuff, you still have enough room for a lot of video, and hundreds of pictures.

    Yeah I like my 32 as well. No regrets.

    If I had gone on the cheap and gotten 16, I would have certainly regretted it.

    Since i4, i've been on 32.

    Considering my phone would have gone from $700 to $940ish, no, I am not remorseful :p

    Have about 13 GB left on my 32GB model, no regrets. Would have gone with the 16GB but they only got shipped 32,64GB models.

    I have about 2gb left on my 32gb model. I think I'll be fine without the 64 - I don't need all of my music at once. I made a playlist of music that I want on it in addition to my other playlists. I'll live.

    I have the 64GB already, and really hope that at some point we get a 128GB version, flash memory is cheap, especially given the qty's Apple buys and their contract pricing. Perhaps with the next iPhone.

    Lol. I did. I also had Avengers and Finding Nemo, a lot of Apps, and a lot of music and some pics already. I think I only had about 3gb of space when I left this morning.

    ----------

    Apps and music can't live in Dropbox. Doesn't solve the problem.

    No regrets here. I preordered the 64GB and I got it on the 21st. I use my iPod Nano for music so the space a music library would take up is available to me. Haven't taken pics or video yet so I still have a large amount of space.

    What model did you get? At min, 32gb is a must IMO if you going to video and take a lot of pics

    I ordered two 64 GB iPhone 5s, black and white, for at&t. I certainly wish I got either after waiting for almost 2 weeks now. :D

    This is not my thread but this almost happened to me as I have had a chance to get a 16 GB then a 32 GB in Best Buy then 16 GBs in reservation system - was really tempted but there is only one choice for my needs.

    Patience & perseverance paid off, just reserved my 64GB tonight! :D
