I have an iPhone 5S with 16gb of storage on ios7.0.4, and my messages are taking up over a solid gigabyte and a half. I deleted as much as I could especially the conversations with lots of pictures and videos, but its still taking up space. I even backed up my iPhone and restored it from new but that hasnt helped at all. Anything I can do? I want that space for music and pictures.
If the device was restored as new, then there is nothing taking up space on the device.
Why do you believe that messages are taking up over a gig? What does the graph in iTunes show is actually taking up space?
Under settings and usage on my iPhone it still says Messages 1.5 GB. And Itunes says Documents and Data 1.58 GB.Or the Messages could be stored under other on iTunes.
