Ok so I just got the new iphone 5 and I started with 13.4 gb of free space and now i find myself with 12.9gb

Also I started with 350mb of used space and now i find myself with 586mb of used space and it keeps going up as I use safari..i need to delele my history and data to bring it down to 579mb used.

What's up?

Photo stream? Under settings, general, usage is where you can find where most of your space is being used.

Also when I take pictures and then delete them my mb used goes up too

Example. I take one picture that takes up 5mb

My current memory used is 592mb, so with the picture it becomes 597mb but when i delete the picture and close the camera and photo app.
My memory is 594mb instead of going back to 592mb.

Is this normal?

Try rebooting the phone. Might be a bug with iOS 6.

When you open the photos app and on the bottom it says photo stream. Click it and see anything? They moved it from the internal albums in iOS 6.

Yeah I did reboot the phone...it lowered it back to 466mb of used storage and my photo stream is turned off

Why does it do that?

Im suppose to have 13.4gb of free space but why do I only have 12.9gb??

Try deleting your cookies. Every time you access a website, it stores a cookie. Sure it shouldn't be that big.. But give it a shot.

It's likely not cookies since those are very tiny. However, internet cache on the other hand can use a lot of space, depending on the sites and the content you're visiting. Not to mention storage that apps use, and text messages, email, etc.
