My daughter's iPhone is an 8 gigger and she's running out of room mainly due to 3.4 gig's of "other".

What is in this category and is there any way to reduce it? I've read it's album art work, etc, but she only has 1.26 gig's of music. I can't believe the album art takes up more than the music itself.

Help?

The only time I ever see an Other section that large is when sync is canceled while it was adding something- either music or a movie.
Re -sync the phone and see if it goes away. Otherwise, you may need to restore it and then re-sync her data

OK, will try a restore. It's been this way for months (many syncs), she tells me. Will report back.

The restore did it. Down to 580 mb's.

Thanks to all.
