This strange Other space is taking over our phones. I keep having to delete important stuff to be able to backup my phone.




Does anyone know what it is?

I was thinking it might be stuff like e-mails but why backup imap mails that allready are on the e-mail server?

Was also thinking some of it could be imessage/sms/mms history. .. But deleting all message history didn't change anything.


Many people are saying its a feature Apple build in to force us to buy more iCloud storage but how ludicrous would that be :-)


Any help you can offer.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1
