Massive amounts of space taken up by "Other" on iPhone 4s??


 Massive amounts of space taken up by "Other" on iPhone 4s??
topic by Contagioso - 10-31-2011, 11:42 PM - Boxden > BX Tech





is this #### happening to anyone else?

i just copped my new iPhone 4s, Sprint 16 GB last week. first iPhone since the 3G. Had an android and blackberry, but i decided it was time to return to the dark side > Massive amounts of space taken up by "Other" on iPhone 4s?? - Photo posted in BX Tech | Sign in and leave a comment below!


i got around 1,200-1,300 songs on it (which takes up the most space), a couple apps, a few games (only like 4 or 5, but they're big games, space-wise), a few pics (no vids, synced them all to my laptop to conserve space).

i havent really noticed the "Other" bar when i connect my iPhone until now, since it's taking up ####in 2+ gigs of space on my phone > Massive amounts of space taken up by "Other" on iPhone 4s?? - Photo posted in BX Tech | Sign in and leave a comment below!






might be from one of the games (saved data?), but i doubt it... at least i hope its not lol


anyone else have this happen to them? if so, what do i do to get rid of that ####?!

i read online that restoring your iPhone gets rid of the "Other" data, but i'm trying to find another solution before i do that.

any suggestions?


edit: just found this article

http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/97281

says that most of the time, its Safari's history/cache/cookie that takes up alot of that ugly "Other" space... i doubt it since i just got my iPhone and i havent really been on the web like that so far... ima give it a try tho, rebooting my phone as i type..

edit: took my other data down to 2.5 > Massive amounts of space taken up by "Other" on iPhone 4s?? - Photo posted in BX Tech | Sign in and leave a comment below! guess its time to restore > Massive amounts of space taken up by "Other" on iPhone 4s?? - Photo posted in BX Tech | Sign in and leave a comment below!

The fact that you can change the amount of space of your device in a matter of seconds without having to buy a larger version of it for $700-$900
