    I just bought the 3G S and want to load my entire iTunes music onto it. After searching around I didn't find a topic on this so I will throw it out there. Does filling up the hard drive on the iPhone hurt its overall performance? There's the unwritten rule that you don't want to fill up your PCs hard drive otherwise the thing just shuts down...is it the same with the iPhone 3G S?

    No, it's a flash drive, which accesses files totally different than your typical hard drive.

    A full hard drive would hurt performance, but because it is flash you have nothing to worry about. :D
