    bit of an odd one this. I had an iPhone 4 which showed 14GB of capacity (I understand the 2GB is used for OS etc). However, I had to return that one for a screen issue and the new one I received is showing a capacity of only 13.98 on software v4.0. I know it's only a tiny amount, but I was wondering why the capacity would differ. any thoughts?

    Formatted capacities vary from drive to drive. Some 16GB phones will have 14.5 or higher, others 13.6 or lower. There's nothing you can really do, but that's only 2MB, 1 song maybe :)

    2GB is not used for the OS, its around 580mb.
    But the amount displayed is correct.
    Long story to explain how the binary system measuring data works and how its presented.

    ah yes, my bad, was calculating 100MB in gigabyte, instead of 1000, my apologies. about 7 songs then? :)
