    Yes you can. But its not easy. Firstly you will have to develop a mulit billion $ company that make, sell, and support a series of personal computers, portable media players, mobile phones, computer software, and computer hardware and hardware accessories. Personally I dont know how one would go about doing this from scratch. But if you suceeded I guess you could then ask all you suppliers and engineers to make your iPhone 20GIG. Technology may not allow it just yet so you might have to wait until the memory is developed. Then you would have to strategically apply it to your iPhone just at the right time to ensure maximum profits against the risk of new technology coming out straight after that allows your competition to get ahead. But my guess is that it will take you a few decades to get to this point and then you will probably be way beyound this point anyway. Or you could just keep on wishing....Happy New Year.

    crazy guy. I was thinking more along the lines of opening the cases, popping out the 8gb flash and installing a 20gb flash. Has anyone done this or attempted do do this?

    nah. Only joking...I am crazy though. A failing moment I'm afraid.

    Dunno. I rekon the memory chip is soldered to the main board. Which would make it impossible. The firmware would have to recognise more as well. Maybe there could be a device for the connector sometime soon. More mem will be a demand when SDK is available.

    It's possible and has been done, but the procedure is not for the feint of heart. You do indeed need to desolder the old flash chip and solder a new bigger one in. Even if you do have experience soldering, you are not looking at a very simple job, the legs on the chip are practically microscopic. As far as software goes, it should be recognized automatically, no difficulty there.
