My new iPhone 5s (64GB) running ios7.2 keeps filling up on storage. When I check storeage usage it has "Calendars & Reminders" using 25.5 gigs? ***?


The only calendar I have running is iCloud. I'm assuming that it's reoccuring event that is stuck in a infinite loop? Yet, everytime I go to remove the calendar from sync it won't let me b/c it says it is currently syncing. I've tried rebooting countless times. I've tried a hard reset. I've gone into iCloud and delete all the calendars and put in a single, new blank one.


When I first started noticing this issue yesterday a reboot would delete the calendar, but then it would rebuild it and fill my storage up again.


Any thoughts?

iPhone 5s, iOS 7.0.2

    I'm having the same problem with my iPhone 4 recently updated to iOS7.  My calendar is suddenly using 4.9G and my entire phone is moving like molasses.  It's moving so slow I can't delete my subscribed calendars in an attempt to fix the problem.  I've had to delete multiple apps and half my music just to keep the storage alerts from popping up.

    I am experiencing the same issue, and I don't even have any calendar accounts set up on my phone yet.  Mine was showing the Carlendars & Reminders taking up 8.6GB, and now 10 mins later, without changing anything it shows that it takes up 4.1GB.  Every time I back out to 'General' then go back into 'Usage', my Calendar & Reminders changes.  It went from 8.6, to 4.1, to 4.6 and now 5.6 (with the last three all within about 2 mins of each other).  Is this a bug?

    Did this ever get resolved? I am having the same issue. Do you use Google exchange for your calendars? Subscribed Calendars? No matter how much I delete, the Events consumes that free space, and I can't remove the Calendars from the phone. I'm on 7.0.4 and a brand new iPhone 4S
