    I recently sync'd my iPhone 5 and noticed that I had over 7gb of data in my "other" memory portion of the phone. Trying to free up more space I deleted and reloaded apps; deleted some phone numbers; cleared some pdf files, and still a load of memory being dedicated to "other". Finally, I cleared my messages and freed up over 3gb of that "other" data. I guess I had an enormous amount of gb's within the messages. O guess they do add up especially if you send a lot of videos and pictures.

    You're messaging a lot of images and or video. Text by itself should not be that high.

    Yeah, I realized that after I deleted it. A lot of video from sporting events to wife.. It's all good now though.

    It is a good tip. I freed up about 4 GB of space in my other section a few weeks ago by deleting my texts. I had lots of videos and pics in there as well.
