What is the other in my iphone? How do i get rid of it?

When i plug in my iphone 4s, i have almost 5GB full of "other"… What is it and how do i get rid of it? I tried deleting all of my texts and it did not help. I only have 100 pictures, no videos, and 900 songs, and a few apps.

Hello, friend. “Other” holds things like system software, contacts, Messages data, settings and things that are not listed elsewhere in the capacities list. You can use iTunes to restore your iPhone, it will erase the 'other' files.
