photostream will let you keep 1000 pictures without using up any space.

And no, I have had my iPhone completely full in the past. Right now I have around 5gb free though!

i have a 16GB 4s, I have about 1,300 songs and i think im right around the 5GB free mark I knew that 32GB was going to be way too much and not worth the extra $100.

Should be plenty of space for videos/pictures/apps on top of what i already have.

Video is the big concern & the reason I got the 64. Video on the 4S will consume about 1GB per 6 minutes of video.

Pics aren't too bad, especially if you offload them regularly and only keep recents & favorites on the phone.

I usually leave about 1 gig free on my phone. No reason other than if I need to record a bunch of video or buy apps while I'm out, I don't have to delete anything.
