    so i had to restore my iphone and the strange thing is that it contains 202.9MB of "others" files.. is that suppose to be there? or could it be from the left over data from air sharing, cause i am having some problem with that applications storing more and more files every time i try to install it? help needed fast! :)

    Usually when restoring an iPhone, the file is about that size.
    You are alright.

    Air sharing problem

    I installed air sharing when it was free. Yesterday I was unable to connect to my MBP. So I figured that maybe it was because it was closing me down because my version was a beta or something. I uninstalled it from iphone. Then I clicked on updates and saw..FREE..so I reinstalled it. Now I cant seem to get rid of it. It wont completely install and it wont go away. How to fix? It says logon on to Itunes store etc. Did that. Downloaded 1.4 MB version from IT store. But when I sync I get error messages. I just wanna either install or uninstall. Tired of seeing dialogue box, with error message. Will I need to restore> If I do restore, will it delete my /music/itunes. directory files on MBP?

    Air sharing un-problem

    Thanx to everyone who heped with this. I restored my iphone, using my MBP. It appears to be OK, I also have around 200+mb of"other" stuff. I have a 16Gig 3g. I have one problem that is this, sometimes when I choose to add a large file to air share, it "times out" on me. So I just try again.
