    Get a 32gig if available. Apps can only go on internal. You can't upgrade internal storage after purchase. Only $50 more.

    SD card is not internal. It is external storage.

    I could make a Scottish joke but I won't go there. :-)

    Besides, if you knew about my grandparents, you'd make a Kerryman joke.

    I've traveled extensively in Ireland and Scotland. Similiar scenery but Scotland has nicer roads.

    Get the 32gb then add 64gb SD card. Full dressed and ready to rock.

    $50 extra for 32gb device, on or off carrier plan.

    Yes it will. You just need to spoof your ip address and make it think you are in the USA when you set up the account. I used a chrome browser add on called Stealth. Give it a go, or pm me. I have an email with all the instructions I sent to one of my friends.
    That's awesome. Not sure if I am really into spoofing my ip though. Seems a bit too risky for my liking. Since you're on Telus, do we get the i747 variant? And have you heard anything about new colours?

    Also, that 6gb data plan would be nice. Too bad Telus will want to charge me ridiculous amounts. Time for some price negotiating

    A few years ago I was in almost the exact same spot as you. With the relatively limited storage and reliability I had with the Droid 2, I carried my iPod around for about six months. Since both devices were fairly small, I could fit both in my pocket. It became a hassle to keep up with and juggle between the two, so I eventually transitioned to just using the Droid 2 for music at work. Now that I've moved to the S3 from the iPhone 4S, I only use the S3 for its smartphone and music capabilities. For now I'm using the stock music player, and like others have noted I added a 64GB SD card for expansion. The SD card combined with the onboard 32GB is for now more than sufficient to store music, etc. With all of the optional music synching and player options available for Android, I recommend carrying and using just the S3. The only gap I have so far compared to the 4S is when it comes to using the S3 in my truck. While my stereo systems supports USB and Auxiliary out, I've only been able to get the S3 to work in Aux mode. This requires me to "flip" through my playlist on the phone, rather than using the stereo's onboard controls. Not an ideal situation for driving, and a problem I didn't have with the S4. If I had a Bluetooth capable stereo then this likely wouldn't be an issue.

    yeah a lot of people are having same problem.
    unfortunately the iphone has been so popular that a lot of things are built around it
    the s3 is already changing that with the amount of accessories available.
    check out the app "Wave Control" for a safe way to control your music while plugged into aux

    Yes, "thrifty" with money is the gist of it. And no, I won't be telling. Out of respect for the "Stone of Scone". Congrats for getting it back!

    It's really not a huge deal to do and so worth it. The spoofing is not anything complicated or risky. All you do is install a browser plugin called Stealthy and select that you want your IP to show you are in the US. You just use this when you sign up for the Google Music account. Once that is done you are good to go. Nothing major.

    You just have to follow these steps once and then you will be good to go.

    I found some tips here: I can has Google Music Canada, and so can you! | Not Available In Canada

    But here are the basic instructions.

    1. Go to this website on your desktop computer: Stealthy | Unlocking The Web.
    - Download the Chrome browser extension here: http://chrome.google.com/webstore/de...njkmedikadnoje

    2. Once it is installed you will have to define that you want your computers IP address to be in the US and not Canada. The screenshot below is what you want it to look like.
    S3 A good iPod Touch replacement? (Want more iPod storage)-stealthy.jpg

    You can click on the middle USA option but that didn’t work for me the first time so I just typed in United states in the Custom area and it worked.

    3. Once you do that you just have to make sure the little stealth icon located in the top right corner of your browser is on and is the color green.

    4. Go to http://music.google.com and login with your gmail account that you use on your phone.

    5. You may have to agree that you are at a new location and agree to the terms etc. Just say okay/yes.

    6. Once it’s all installed you should be good to go and you can now start uploading your music. You can do this directly from iTunes or a number of other methods. Follow the instructions.

    7. After I uploaded my music all I had to do was open up my Google music app and add in my gmail address to connect it. If you are not running ICS or higher then you need the side load the google music app which is here: Google_Play_Music_4.3.605.392829.apk

    That should do it. Let me know if you have any trouble.
