I noticed this when I downloaded ios7 on my 4s and when I went to usage it showed I had 5.3GB of saved text messages but I always delete my text messages so why is iPhone saving all these in SMS and using all this space. As a result I needed to upgrade to a 32GB iPhone 5s from a 16GB because its using all this space for text messages I deleted already and my phone is always full. U can not find these with search on iPhone either. I know I can restore from cloud but I will lose all my app settings. Apple needs to fix this. Thanks for any help to get rid of text messages I dont have on my phone to free up space.
