    Go ahead and do a backup via iTunes to see if the other data clears itself. If not, try rebooting your device and/or doing am iCloud Backup as well, if applicable.

    This is a common question...do you keep your text messages from day to day? Emails? etc...that is part of Other, as well as album art for Music and sometimes the ios updates (red badge on Settings if you have one) Try turning phone off and back on once you've deleted a few of the previous mentioned things and see if it helped. I suggested this to a friend just yesterday and it freed up a lot!

    Hope that helps!

    And you tried turning phone all the way off and back on?!

    I jail broke mine, so my Other will always show 2.5ish, but I really can't think of anything else. How about clearing your cookies etc from Safari? All my other suggestions usually work...sorry I couldn't help more!

    It could be a lot of things. Attached pictures in texts, emails, Application cache, safari cache etc. If you want to clear off some of the other space try this application called phoneclean. Its for windows and mac and it works pretty effectively

    It's spy software, they're tracking everything you do, and every picture you take is being put into a database. They make sure to save that stuff for government uploads...and if you delete that "other" storage, they will send the FBI to your house with thick gloves on, and if you don't know what that means, good luck!

    I had 14GB of 'Other'. I deleted all texts, cleared out all safari data, no album art, did resets, etc. No luck. Finally restored as a new device and started over fresh. It went from 14GB to 0.3GB

    As Sean stated, the FBI arrived 2 days later. My trial begins Tuesday.

    ok everyone so i figured it out.. with out having to restore. apples answer for everything. was in the mall figured let me go in and ask.. they were zero help and then continued to tell me how android has the same problems when i didnt ask.. but back to the topic. i downloaded iFile to my macbook pro connected my phone and went browsing around the phone.. came across a movie in cloud access that was 6.1gigs... which i didnt record on the day it said. i deleted it gave it a second and BOOM.. dropped all he other data. its at 1.6 gigs but ill take that.... just thought id share a different solution than erasing everything over and over..

    Apple suggests doing a restore in this scenario because it does in fact work to reduce the size of the "other" storage...it's a very simple and moderately quick process/solution for something that is so variable from person to person that it's not worth their time to sit and try to dissect your iPhone to give you specifics on what is causing the storage use. To add, Apple isn't going to suggest a 3rd party fix like iFile because they have their own native way of covering the bases in this kind of scenario...not sure what your "erasing everything over and over" comment is about though, a restore is really just a basic few clicks of the mouse effort.

    I'd also like to add that i did an internet search for "delete other from iPhone storage", and the very first google search result is a thread on the Apple community website that both suggests restoring as an option AND iFile...perhaps taking a few seconds to search for yourself in the future would have been worth while.
