    In your iTunes, when you click on the iphone you get a screen, at the bottom it shows how you use your space. Is there any space left over on it ?

    yes there is. I tried updating my iphone to get rid of the hacks on it and its saying its got almost 5gb of "other". But it did it before when i would sync it with the hacks on it.

    Could you try a restore via itunes ? My guess is that there is some crap left over on your phone, but without the hacks you'll have a hard time getting to it.

    I did the restore it erased all that "other" stuff off the iPhone but its not allowing me now to put any videos on. My iPhone hates me. :(

    Eh. The restore should have left your iphone in a pristine state.

    Other than trying again, perhaps googling to see if other people have had the same problem ?
