I have a substantial amount of space being used up by "other" storage. I have tried restoring my phone multiple times. Any other suggestions?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3

    Delete the data that is filling up "Other", such as SMS messages, MMS messages, email, Safari cache, Genius data, album art. "Other" contains the data for the built in apps plus iOS settings and data. Occasionally it gets picks up corrupted data from elsewhere on the phone. In this case the only way to get rid of it is to Restore the phone as new, and add your content back individually.
