Ever find that if you restore your iPhone from backup that you see a chunk of the storage used up as 'Other' but you don't know how to delete it?

If you're like me and are accustomed to sending a lot iMessages or texts with attachments, you'll find that all that data will start to eat away at your free space.

You can minimize this by deleting those messages and see that it reduces the size of that 'Other' data allowing you to increase the size of free space.

Thanks for this- I've also found that "Other" can be files in Apps such as pics, documents etc... that you add through iTunes to individual apps.
