Is 16GB holds ALOT? I need a new iPhone, I can be clueless when it comes to computers, cell phones & more stuff. I'm wondering if I should buy 16 or 32GB, I hate not knowing these things.

I would get the 32gb just to be safe.

16GB will run out by normal use of apps and pictures alone. 32GB should be fine.

You can also get a micro sd card for added storage for most phones these days.

A micro SD card is a memory card that you can put into your phone to expand the amount of storage space it has available.

Not all that clueless, since it looks pretty much like a sim card and is used in pretty much the same way, obviously though it stores more than just numbers.

Your phone will have a limit to how much extra storage it can take from the card. It should be about 32gb.

Thanks! When I read about laptops, cell phones & iPads, I can easily get confused & don't understand everything I'm reading. :oops:
