    It is apparently something that was previously reported in the iTunes summary page included in the "OTHER".

    There is a setting now in the Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > [iCloud mail account] > Documents & Data > [OFF] to remove it from your phone and stop syncing it.

    I turned "Documents & Data" off but my text messages are still taking up over 2gb (same as before). I have manually deleted all of them, so I am assuming they are still stored somewhere? Any other ideas how to get rid of them? I really appreciate any help.

    Thanks!

    Go to settings> mail, contact, calendars> icloud account>storage and backup> manage storage - then delete the contents.. It gave me 3 GB of space for things I didnt even know were saved.

    Maybe you could get a back up, then in the setting head over reset > erase all content and settings.
    Hope that help.

    Connect the external hard drive that youll be using as a Time Machine volume to the Mac if you have not done so already
    Go to the  Apple menu and go to System Preferences, then choose Time Machine
