When I sync my iPhone, I have 1.3 GB of "other" in yellow taking up space. I've searched on the net for an answer on what this is and have been unable to find an answer. Does anyone know? If so, how do I get rid of it.
Verizon iPhone 4S. 16 GB.

Does anyone have any recommendations for 9.5 GB of other data. I've been trying to fix my buddies iPhone for a week now.
I ran terminal and looked for anything over 100MB and only two things showed up.
We deleted all of the music, emails, and any cache we could find. I'm not exactly sure what else it could be.

Also, I know it may not be possible to come close to the 9.5, but does your friend have a lot of contacts with pics assigned to them as well? That could be part of the culprit too....
G'luck, I hope you guys figure it out, and plz do share what the 9.5gb was !! I've never heard of so much taken up.

I'll have to look through his contacts see if that helps at all.
UPDATE: None of his contacts have any pictures. I couldn't find anything out of the ordinary when looking through ifile, but I wouldn't know what exactly to look for. I deleted his entire cache folder. Didn't help.
To the OP, sorry for hijacking your thread.

This is probably obvious to you, but what do you mean by "everything else is under a gig"? Do you mean there are several items that are each less than 1 GB (say in the 500MB to 900MB range)? Or do you mean there is 1.2 GB of music, and the total of everything else adds up to less than 1 GB? Just trying to clarify.
The reason I ask is that this setting panel displays information differently than iTunes does for me. For instance, I have several photo and video apps and the app itself shows up as only 20 MB or so in iTunes, but in this setting panel on the phone it shows up a having 500MB of data because the app has photos and videos stored in it as associated data.

All other apps are under a gig. To be more specific under 100 MB. I'm beginning to think its his music. When we deleted iTunes control>music from ifile it dropped his other to 7.7 gb. When he put his music back on it jumped back up to 9. All the while his music in iTunes and on settings on his phone stayed at 1.2GB.
