    It's your OS, notes, settings, contacts, calendar events and text messages.

    Sure, delete them if it's really bugging you.

    When you're running low on space...it all needs to be accounted for.

    Other = OS, texts, notes, settings and anything that is no media, apps or photos.

    I have 780 mb of "Other"... It takes like 12 seconds for my messages to open. Guess what the other accounts for?

    Stored MMS, that I am waiting to unleash on the 25th. ;)
