    I'm upgrading to the 32 cause I gave my brother my iPod and 16 won't cut my music memory ha. I was wounding if you had to ballpark how many songs can 32 gigs hold on the iPhone?

    depends on what you decode in and how long, etc

    I usually get about 200songs per gig

    Well let's put this into perspective. Go to settings > general > about and see how many songs you have. Then multiply it by 2. I think that's a fairly decent way to tell since I assume the other media on your phone like contacts and pictures will stay the same.

    *edit* i realized you might not have the device anymore. perhaps you remember how many fat on 16gb? (can you use fat like that? lol) :D

    I've maxed out my 32GB 3GS with 3,899 songs at 25.04GB.

    Apps / Pictures / Videos eat up the last 4.5 GB as the 32GB model becomes 29.33 after formatting and iOS installation.

    Allow iTunes to sync down-convert your music to 128k AAC and you'll have plenty of space.

    Here is what i have on my 16gb model.

    Songs 808

    Videos 0

    photos 11

    applications 17

    I have got 1.3 gb space left!

    All my tracks are 320kbs. It depends on how serious you are into your audio what bit rate you want your tracks at. If i downsized to 192 or 128 i could get a lot more but at the cost of audio quality which i wont do!!

    320 is overkill for what the human ear can hear. I go for V0 variable.

    With iCloud and paying for $25 per year...storage on the iphone isn't going to matter anymore for for music (assuming you are around wifi/cellular data).

    Many people can't tell the difference between 128 and, say, 256.

    It doesn't sound as great as it could, yes, but it certainly doesn't sound 'terrible', unless you're a true audiophile (but then you wouldn't be using an iPhone for on-the-go music now would you?).
