    Terry98's comment above is correct for restoring the iPhones problems with OTHER. Other does not affect whether the iPhone is full or not as I managed to get my iPhone with 2gb+ free and still i was getting the problem.


    The solution is to WIPE everything & do a complete factory restore (ie restore from an earlier backup). For some strange reason it sorts out the "storage full" message on the iPhone even if the Other section has over 1.5gb (like mine does).


    Unfortunately now I seem to have a very slow/buggy iPhone 4 running iOS5, is there a way to go back to the old iOS? As my iPhone 4 hangs on occasions now also pressing the home screen causes a huge delay before it finally responds. Hope they make this iOS faster on all devices, even my 4s isn't as quick as I felt it would be

    Quick fix for this that I found: settings,iCloud,storage & backup,turn off iCloud backup,sync phone with iTunes, then go back into iCloud and turn iCloud backup on again and your problem should go away. That's what I did anyway.

    I started having this exact same issues a couple days ago. It is wreaking havoc on my phone!

    Nothing is performing correctly and no matter how much I delete, it doesn't last.

    What is filling up that space on it's own???

  • Ramblingman Level 1 Level 1

    Did you try going to iCloud and turn off iCloud storage backup, then sync your phone with iTunes then turn iCloud backup back on. After I did this I've had no further problems and lost no data. I also called apple tec support and they had never heard of this problem. I guess they don't read the forums. Anyway hope it works for you too.

    Turning off iCloud backup seems to have worked for me, without the need for an iTunes sync. Something is eating up data, probably a log file somewhere and it may be a particular app that uses the iCloud feature that's not working as it should. This would explain why not everyone is having the problem. I suspect that we all have the same problem app installed. A couple i have installed and suspect might be a problem are: Tunein radio and Sygic GPS. These are always open when I experience the problem.  We'll see how it goes with the iCloud backup turned off.

    The "Other" is stored data, such as mail etc.

  • Kaseb Level 1 Level 1

    I had the same problem and I disabled the iCloud backup and deleted all the I cloude backup and and my free space went from 6 to 13 GB so the backup was actually stored in my iPhone memory and that's something I didn't know.

    So to solve this problem I turned off iCloud backup and deleted the old backup done by iCloud in my iPhone

  • Azgard Level 1 Level 1

    The issue is caused by significant number of piled (not synch) iCloud changes in its journal. You need to force iCloud backup to free up space. To do ot, you need to connect iPhone/iPad to power, then to wi-fi and chose "back up now" in iCloud settings.

    +1 to Azgard's reply.   This was driving me nuts for two days.  I had 1GB free out of 12, couldn't understand where it was all going.   Connected to power/wifi, backed up, and I'm back to 5.6GB free and no more messages.

  • kkayj66 Level 1 Level 1

    Yah I have know idea how to fix that I'm having the same problem it's really annyoing cause I can't update or do anything it's SAD:( PLZZZZZZZZ HELP

  • rah1420 Level 1 Level 1

    Dude, do this.  Problem solved.

  • JavierMolina Level 1 Level 1

    I believe the problem of "storage almost full..." refers to the amount of storage in iCloud you've paid for. The message might be an Apple trick to get you to pay £70 to solve your problem....

  • Azgard Level 1 Level 1

    It is not true. Please check my post here. It is very simple and technically viable solution.

  • JavierMolina Level 1 Level 1

    As you can see, since I replied to your post, I did what you suggested above and followed a whole lot of deleting this ant that without a positive result.

    It was easier to cough up and get more storage... probel solved

  • UptownIntellect Level 1 Level 1

    Hey Azgard,  I tried your solution and still showing very little storage space.  The back up took hours and then afterwards I powered off and then back on and there was still very little storage.  Not to mention the fact that I have no interest in using iCloud altogether.  Do you have any other ideas?
