Buying a refurb iPhone from the official AT&T website for $99.00
I switched my wife to an iPhone .... my 8th Verizon convert since the beginning of 2009, by the way.
I got one of the AT&T $99 refurb deals for the 8GB version. I got her to use the referral that appears on this site and it kicked some money back to me.
I started preparing my music library for her to sync to her iPhone. As I was going through my songs in cover flow ... I noticed a lot of duplicate album artwork. So, I named all of the albums (something I've never done) ... it took me a few hours. Wow! By removing the duplicate artwork, because albums had extra words in the title or artists names were spelled like "Michael Jackson" instead of "Micheal Jackson", I saved nearly 200 MEGABYTES!!
If you have a lot of music ... I'd make sure you don't have the same problem. Some of the MP3's on my computer are 13 years old and either I personally added the artwork and created the ID3 tags or iTunes mistakenly added the wrong information in an "Album Art Search".
