    Just curious if everyone here has their music on their iPhone, or if they use a separate iPod/MP3 player for their music.

    If you don't keep all of your music/videos on your iPhone, why don't you?

    I keep approx. 23% of my music on my iPhone. I keep the rest of my music on my iPod Nano which stays in my car.

    I keep all of my music, videos, podcasts, etc on my iPhone (16gig) for keeping with me wherever I go, and I also keep it all on my 30gig iPod in the car. I don't like using the touchscreen while driving; I much prefer the click wheel.

    Yes.

    It's the reason why I upgraded to a 32GB 3GS

    My iTunes library is about 51 GB atm so no. Then again, I've never had an isse with selectively choosing what I carry with me, be it iPods or iPhone. Music-wise, I have about 4 GB on my 32 3GS and it meets my needs.

    I put "Yes, all of it" even though I only have 70% of my music on it. I don't keep 100% of music anywhere (I have CDs I haven't ripped onto iTunes, and I have MP3s on my computer not on my iPod).

    I kind of see it as a waste to have an iPhone and have no music/media on it (after all, one of its top features are the iPod aspect).

    But I can see people not wanting to waste battery life on media. Either way, you should at least put music on it and use the 16GB you paid for or whatever and maybe in that one random time you need a tune, there ya go.

    I have about 1600 songs and 100 music videos. I have 12000 songs on my iPod Classic that stays in my car and it plays and plugs into my car stereo.

    If I could have all my music on my phone I would.

    i keep rotating play lists. currently have 71gb of music so until the 128gb iphones come out this is the only option. I use simplify media often in the case of wanting to hear something not on my phone

    I have over half a terabyte of music; it won't fit in my iPhone. I don't even know half the songs in my library anyways. Buy a CD for like 3 songs and get 10 I never listen to.

    I've got 51Gb of music now, so having it all on there is out of the question, but i would if i could!

    I just make a smart playlist to include my my most played songs limiting the size to 20Gb

    Now where is this 120Gb iPhone? :p

    I carry the essentials from my library, the iPhone has become my number one iPod. Hardly use my iPod Video 30 gig anymore. I really hope there's a 64 gig version of the next iPhone!

    I've got a small selection (2500 tracks) on my iPhone, though I rarely use it as a music player.

    My main music device is a 160GB classic and I've also got an old 60GB iPod photo in the car.

    I have 20GB of music on my 32GB 3GS. Other than that, I listen to music using my 160GB Classic. I pretty much prefer carrying 2 devices.

    I keep about 5GB of music on my iPhone, but only as a back up for if my video iPod dies when I'm out.

    I tend not to listen to the iPhone otherwise. I'm not one of those people who can only have a little music with me, I always end up wanting to listen to something random that hasn't been synced. I need a full size dedicated iPod :eek:

    I keep about 16GB of music on my iPhone. That's less than half of my library.

    Haha well... I have around 60gb of music on my Mac in iTunes and several gigs of videos. (More on another computer)

    Definitely not going to fit on my phone. Also, I don't need it all on my phone. I use most of the space for apps. I treat my phone like an iPod Shuffle or Nano.

    I sync only a few playlists:
    iPhone (One with songs I want to make sure always sync)
    Top 25 Played (Smart Playlist)
    Top Rated (Smart Playlist)
    Songs with < 2 Playcount (Smart Playlist)
    25 Random (Smart Playlist)
