    2 months ago upgraded from 5s to 6s, purchased at Verison. Agent there transfered all data from old to new.
    5s was 35gb, 6s 64gb. 5s was at about 32gb used when changed fones. I did not look at storage in 6s for a month, last week I got a warning that I was about to run out of storage. It showed 400mb left. I dumped some apps and got to 3.2gb. Since switching to the 6s I have not added any apps nor photos.
    Question is, how have I used over 40gb in the change of phones?

    Your 5s cannot be 35 GB. It should be 32 GB total and used space would be less than 32 GB. Nevertheless, did you add any songs/videos? Also, did you install absolutely no apps at all after getting a new phone?

    I would check in Settings, General, Usage, internal Storage. And see what's taking up all that space.

    You can check the internal storage. but your 5s have 35gb.
    I am afraid that you buy a Refurbished iphone

    Right, I miss typed, it was 32gb.
    No added videos or music. I don't think I added an app. If so it was not a game or anything any where near large.
    Thanks for replying

    Doing the following, as suggested in the earlier post would give a better idea:
    Post a screenshot of your internal storage if possible.
