    So, I've searched countless forums, all with no success. My "other" tab of my iPhone says 8 gb out of the 16 (13 rather) that I have. I NEED to fix this. I do not want to restore at all. Help!

    Probably one or more of the apps on your iPhone is using this 'other' storage to store its files/data.

    Try this:
    1. Open the Settings app.
    2. Tap General, Usage, and wait for the Storage list to display.
    3. Identify any apps that are using a large amount of space.
    You can then open the app(s) and trash any unwanted data, drawings, music, video, whatever...

    Good luck!

    RTP.

    Nope, highest is music at 2 gigabytes, then the next highest is a measly 133 mb.

    Thanks, helped. I neglected to say I had tried to jailbreak and failed partway through. My phone was filled with hidden cydia files and such
