Ahh. I've scanned so many threads and I've only made my problem worse. I have always synced using iTunes on my Macbook Pro, and was running out of space, so I backed up my pictures and deleted them off my iPhone. Then I noticed I had lots of 'Other' space. I tried deleting my email account off my phone, no difference, so I added it back. I deleted all my text conversations, nope. I restored my phone and the space went UP. From 3. something GB to 4.22GB. I tried someone's idea of Settings> General> Usage> Music and deleting it, it wouldn't let my songs play so I deleted my music and then re-synced it. I have a 16GB iPhone and while I know some software space is needed, 4GB is ridiculous. How can I get this off!!
large amounts of "other" usually indicates corrupt data. Best bet at this point is to transfer purchases, import photos, and then restore as new.
when thats done, sync everything back over.
Yes hun if you restore as new the phone will be wiped, but thats why i suggested transfering purchases and importing photos and syncing with the computer first. you will be able to get your things back.

Sure photos, songs, and purchases will never be lost of course.
Whats really important is the app data .. Your medical app's 5 years of blood suger messurements and medecine intake logs. .. saved games .. etc. Stuff you might have put thousands of man-hours into. Stuff that can't be bought for any amount of money.
