    As long as iTunes match is available? Why would anyone use the service if we had 64 or 80g iPhones that could hold entire music libraries on top of boatloads of apps?

    I know a lot of people that use itunes match for more than just using it on their phone. The fact that you have your entire music backed up to the cloud is great, and being able to have all your music on other devices like iPads is well worth the $25.

    With "Unlimited Data" plans being gone in the US, I hope Apple would keep adding more storage space. I know streaming Pandora a high quality eats data very quickly.

    One has nothing to do with the other. The current gen isn't so why would you expect future gens to backslide?

    Depends on usage. My wife uses Pandora on HQ every day and uses ~2GB/month.

    I have no desire to use iTunes match. My data speeds are atrocious most places, and iTunes match doesn't allow me to download/stream lossless.

    This is what 3G (oops, I mean "4G") gets me out here in Hershey, PA. No freaking way I would depend on that for listening to music.

    iTunes match is helpful for not needing to store 5000 songs on my phone, but my real problem with space has always been photos. I had never stored much music on my phone, but I do find iTunes match to be helpful there. It is very easy to fill up the space taking a lot of pictures and videos.

    As flash memory gets cheaper, device size gets larger. 128GB is next.

    What is your definition of very quickly? I stream an hour a day, at the least, on highest settings and don't consume more than about a gig a month over Pandora.

    Man u live in college town. 8pm speed test in college town? You are competing with tons of college students for same bandwidth.

    Verizon 3 g speed is same in South Beach Miami at 8pm.

    True, it will be a while.

    Because storage space should not be defined by iTunes match only?

    Not everyone uses that.

    Probably the iPhone of 2013.

    Max Capacity size offerings have been doubling every other iPhone generation.

    The only school I'm aware of in the area is the medical school. A medical school will have far fewer students than a typical university, and it's summer right now so the 1st year students aren't even in session. And Hershey is so spread out that the towers really shouldn't be getting saturated at all.
