    Curious to see how many settled because they wanted the iPhone 4 so bad.

    How many bought the 16GB because they ran out of 32GBs and vice versa?

    I did. Settled for 16 when I wanted a 32.

    It's always nice to have more memory but seeing it's still out of stock at most places, i'm happy with my purchase

    I certainly don't need a 32GB but I would have spent the extra money if I walked into the store when I did and they were out of 16GBs.

    I got my iPhone 4 in black because it was not available in white. I returned it to the Apple Store after 2 weeks because of dropped calls where signal strength was weak. My iP3GS does much better in the same settings and it is silky white.

    I wanted a 16GB but ATT store only had the 32GB! So what the hay ! an extra 100 bucks for a 32! why not ! What was even better that it was the first day ATT started to sell the phones and i just walked in, 15 mins later walked out. I felt sorry for everyone who waited over night or in a line :rolleyes:

    Wanted the white 16Gb and ended up with the Black 32Gb since they had it in stock at the time.

    Up here it was, sorry it's still a PITA to get the i4. I wanted 32GB and nothing less.

    It was over 3 weeks since it launched when I got my 32GB, I was lucky too since I just dropped by and walked inside Rogers plus before heading to the gym.

    I refused to wake up 4-5 in the morning and line up for hours every day/weekend for this. Like I said people are still trying to get theirs, I'm not sure if they are just scalpers though.

    I wanted the 16, had to settle for the 32 because it was the one Radio Shack was receiving more. Thank God for it!

    I wanted the white 32GB, but had to settle for the black 32GB. No big deal.

    Yeah, because no one had any problem trying to preorder.

    I think you mean day 1.

    Got mine on launch day at Radio Shack. I was 2nd in line - and they had a VERY limited supply. The next person in line wanted to 32gig and the person after that was a young kid who was getting a VERY nice reward for getting all A's - a new iPhone 16gig.

    When I went into the store - my intention was to get a 16gig. There were 2 32s left and one 16 gig. I ended up getting the 32gig because I didn't want the kid to go away empty handed. And I figured the extra space would be good to have for videos (both loading and shooting with the camera).

    I don't come close to using 16 gig because of such apps as Hulu, Netflix, etc.

    But for the $100+ tax difference to make someone else happy - I figured - what the heck

    I was leaning towards getting a white one, but it wasn't a strong preference. After all of the delays, I'm glad I didn't wait.

    I wanted a 16 gb one but everywhere was out of iphones. Finally managed to run to a store ~40 miles away only to find they have 2 32 gb iphones left. So of course I made the purchase. :D

    Got what I wanted, black/32GB. Days leading up to launch, I still had a strong preference that I wanted black, but only 50/50 between 16 vs 32. I really was tight with the budget. It wasn't until Tuesday of that same week that I was leaning toward 32. When I picked it up at Best Buy, the person who helped me mistakenly had a 16GB reserved for me by looking at the back of the box. For a sec, I was thinking to just go for it. Then I thought to go with with my first instinct. Grateful I went 32 because I just filled up 17GB already.

    With my first iPhone 4, I was forced to take the 16GB, however, I ended up having issues with it , and did a return. After waited a month, I was able to get the 32GB iPhone 4 that I have now.

    I didn't settle and I would not have if they were out of the 32GB. Wait a few weeks to get the phone I wnat that I will have 2 years, or save maybe a few weeks and get my phone early and have to compromise for the lesser space? Yeah, I would have waited to get the 32GB. Personally, that was one of my very few (if only) disappointments with the iPhone 4, that it didn't have a 64GB version.

    And I'm kinda glad cause I'm either already very close to the 16 GB limit or over it at this point.

    I bought the 16gb because that is what they had in stock. I still have 10.4gb free, so I'm not really worried.
