    16 or 32 meg?

    Hello

    What is the difference between 16 and 32 meg versions?
    Is this internal memory or scard?
    Verizon is telling me two different stories.

    Thanks

    It's supposed to be all internal memory, either 16GB or 32GB. But I have read where some people ordered a 32GB version and received one that had 16GB internal plus a 16GB microSD card. Verizon tried to pass this off as being acceptable (I think it was just their way of dealing with the initial 32GB shortage), but it's not in the slightest. If you receive one of those, many people have successfully been able to return it for one that has 32GB of internal memory.

    Never heard of this, but definitely return it for the right device as bsweet suggested.

    Well, they lied to me.
    I purchased the 16meg one.

    Is it worth the trouble to return it and get the 32?

    Also, how do I change my email address on this forum?

    Thanks

    You can just get a nice big sd card and you'll be fine. You might not even need a big sd, I have a 32gb phone and 32gb sd card and it is defiantly overkill.

    Ok, I just thought since they told me no difference, I should exchange it.

    Also they told me to add a line to get the update as I am not eligible until June.

    I sold my 4s, and just planned to spend the difference.

    I hate contracts.

    They probably said no difference assuming you knew what gigabytes meant.

    It's actually 16 and 32gb, not megabit, which refers to the amount of internal memory. But I don't think it comes with an SD card, have to use your own.

    Correct.
    I have the 16gb myself and threw in my own 16gb sd card. It's much cheaper to buy the 16gb model, and purchase your own micro sd card.
    Good luck!
