My iPhone has 1.24gig of storage space missing, listed as "other". What the hell is it, and how do I get rid of it?

Have you tried restarting it?

I had the same thing. I think it's like a temp directory or something. I restarted it and it went away.

I had the same problem, I was like WTF?!

I did a hard restore on iTunes, and my iPhone.

takes a while, but gets rid of it. Now it's back to normal. :cool:

I read about this issue yesterday, but can't quickly find the link. Basically, the iPhone has moved a bunch of stuff to this "Other" location because of a problem it had. The only way to recover the lost storage is to sync up your iPhone with your computer, then do a Restore of the iPhone. That will wipe your storage and the next sync will bring your data back from your computer's backup.

I'm sorry I can't remember the details, but it's not a new issue. As I recall, following the Restore to its factory state and then re-syncing returned the iPhone to its correct state, with the "Other" stuff gone and everything else was perfect.

Didn't lose a thing. iTunes makes a nice backup! The only thing I had to do was redo my voicemail message, and any custom iPhone settings.

I was playing with an iPhone last night that had been reset and re-synched, and the only changes I noticed were that the AirPort passwords had to be re-entered. The restored iPhone remembered the networks to automatically join, but the passwords were missing. I asked the owner if any other settings had to be redone, and he said yes, but that all his personal data was restored.

lol, so when i got my replacement on wednesday i checked my greeting, it was set to default like you would normally come to it as when you first get it.

then i called my number from my office phone to see if it would give me the generic message and it played my custom message i recorded!

just a thought for right now :)
