Has anyone noticed that the "other" section under capacity increases after the update. I had like 300MB free before the update and then half of that went to the "other" section. I thought these were old install files that could be deleted but I don't see where they are so I can delete them

I had a lot of "other" also and did a restore. It didn't go down very much. Any ideas where it comes from?
Thanks!

Do a restore on your phone and it will clean up the "other"
My "other" went to 354 MB after the 1.1.3 update. It is back to 190 MB after the restore. I would have liked more, but it is enough to be worth the effort. Thanks for the advice.

I didn't seem to lose anything, though I did have to adjust my contacts. But that took no time.
Good luck!

Does anyone have quick instructions on how to do a restore? Also, what is meant by, "I have to adjust my contacts" What exactly was adjusted?

I have a giant hunk of Other - 188 MB. After Restoring twice, it's still there. Very annoying.

Basically it was just adjusting "us" from the iPhone to "US (United States)" in my contacts. Not exactly sure why my iPhone was in lower case, but it really took no time at all.

This seems like one of those emails...

Get 1.1.3 and increase your size!
