do you have your phone jailbroken? if so, do you have the app to use your phone as a usb drive? if you do (and you set up a drive), it will deduct that amount of space from your available space and call it used as "other"...(for however much space you set the drive up for) i did this to transfer some music from my office computer to my home computer, so i could keep all my music in the same library. i deleted the drive, so i have all of my space back, though.

you would know it if you had it...it's called "usb drive". i don't know what else it could be unless you have a ton of large apps on your phone. do you have installous? if so, do you keep the downloads after you install the apps? they could be taking up some space... if you do, open installous and press the "downloads" button to see what you have...you can clear them out unless you want to keep them in case you have to re-install the app if you have problems later.

Even at 32gigs, with formating and os the usable space is like 29.xx gigs. It sounds like you have a lot of apps, or some apps that require a lot space.

yep, it's 29.33 gb to be exact... btw, i guess that itunes compresses the songs once it puts them on your iphone. i have about 28 gigs of music (according to my itunes folder) and i was thinking that it wouldn't all fit along with my apps. i put it all on there and i still had almost 9 gigs left.
