Buy as much as you can afford. Remember that you can't buy more memory later.

How much space does the BB have? Have you ever run out of it?

64 GB is an enormous amount of storage for a phone. Over 10,000 songs or 75,000 photos (very conservative estimates). I can't imagine anyone needing that much storage. For an iPad, possibly, but not phone. Of course, videos take up a lot more space, but even then it seems like overkill. I personally don't transfer videos onto my iPhone; it's not a great medium for viewing video.

The only thing I have stored on my phone is some songs and some pictures.... it all depends on what you will do with it. If you don't know that, we can't suggest much more than "buy what you can afford." In all reality, 8gb should be fine, 16gb should be overkill and more than that is unreasonable.
