    My iphone says it has 1.5 gigs left but it dosnt look like it. I have 2.5 gigs of music, no photos and a few apps that all add up to like 3 gigs. Any ideas?

    Don't forget you don't start with 16Gb, you lose some from formatting and some from the Operating System.

    Email?

    Oh boy, *somebody* made the mistake of pulling out the calculator.

    My brand new 2TB HD gave me 1.8TB after formatting, BRAND NEW. LIERS! :(

    Check the amount of apps you have open. Usually, your space gets taken up by the apps that are in standby. Mine got up to as much as 2-3GB at one point. Once I closed all my apps, I had my space back.

    Plug into iTunes. Look at the storage graph. Take screenshot. Post here. The information you have given us thus far is virtually unusable.
