Buy an 8GB iPhone and that's what you have, buy a 8 GB card and you can always buy a larger one later when it fills up.
That depends on the capacity of card the phone can take (firmware dependant i think). For the pearl at the moment i have been told thats 8gbs. You could always have multiple cards though but theyre easy to loose those little mites
