The iPhone couples a mobile phone, iPod, Internet browser, camera, e-mail and many other features onto a single unit, also known as a smartphone. The iPhone is currently available in two models: iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3GS is available with 16 GB and 32 GB of memory. The iPhone 3G is available with 8 GB. As of 2010, there are no expandable memory slots available on either iPhone. But there are three ways to increase storage capacity.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Register for MobileMe. Apple defines MobileMe as “a service that pushes new e-mail, contacts and calendar events over the air to all your devices.” One of the features of MobileMe is iDisk. Apple says “iDisk makes it easy to store and share files online so you can access them from any computer. And with the free iDisk app for iPhone and iPod touch, you can view and share files even when you’re on the go.” iDisk comes standard with 20 GB of storage and offers upgrades of 20, 40 and 60 GB.

  2. 2

    Upgrade from an iPhone 3GS 16 GB to an iPhone 3GS 32 GB. Visit your local service provider for upgrade options and pricing.

  3. 3

    Upgrade from an iPhone 3G 8 GB to any iPhone 3GS. The iPhone 3GS offers double to quadruple the memory capacity of the iPhone 3G. Visit your local service provider for upgrade options and pricing.
