50,000 songs would make more sense, I'll even delete my 40,000 contacts and forget about them! LOL, This is so stupid the only reason that they did it is because nobody will be using that memory unless it's some kind of customer service business that have that many contacts and even then I don't see them using an iPhone for that.
