    I never had a problem with the Yellow Other bar in Itunes until I got my Iphone 5 almost one year ago.

    And Ive had ALL the previous versions of iphone

    So since I have had this iphone 5, I have had to WIPE out 150 gigs of my Itunes, done a clean erase on my Mac's hardrive, and REPLACED my hard drive with a BRAND new one, AND Apple had to give me a BRAND new Iphone 5 replacement.

    and not to mention 7 different trips to the Genius Bar at the Apple Store.

    I have started a few different threads on this site JUST about this issue. Unfortunately I cant find my previous posts.

    so here it is:

    The cure to the yellow Other bar:

    erase your text histories ;)

    Texting photos and videos sure do add up ;)

    this isnt technically the cure you make it sound to be. some people, like me, doesnt save text history and when i go into my SMS logs in my backups, they are only a few MB tops when my "Other" is almost 1.9GB. even after fresh installs, it doesnt decrease by that much anymore.

    bottom line is some things may shrink it, but there is no real guaranteed cure.
