Im trying to free up space on my iPhone4 but cannot figure out how to offload the photos and apps from it. I have already backed up all the photos but cannot remove them off the device. And for some reason I cannot activate my iCloud; something about a verification Email that never reaches my mailbox. Some guidance would be appreciated!
You should have been able to delete you photos after import, as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083. You can still remove them from the phone by opening camera roll in the thumbnail view, tapping Edit, tap all the photos/videos you want to delete, tap Delete. If you have a mac you can use Image Capture to mass delete them. You can remove apps by either tapping any app until it wiggles, then tap the back "x" on the apps you want to delete, or by unchecking them on the Apps tab of your iTunes sync settings and syncing your phone.
Thanks for the reply! Well I tried to import the pics again, but apparently since I'd already done so the "delete after importing" prompt won't come up again (says there are no new photos). And individually tapping 3000+ thumbnails to delete them is ludicrous! There must be some other way! If I could access the iCloud I would shift most of my apps there (or is it even possible to move apps in that fshion to free up internal storage??)
At the moment my laptop is also maxed out on storage availibility, so I cannot even Sync this phone properly at the moment. I just need to clear out the photos and somehow move some apps off the internal storage on the physical device itself.
If you're on a mac you can mass delete photos using Image Capture. Not sure if there is an equivalent way in Windows. I would not recommend deleting them with windows explorer as you may corrupt the photos database on your phone.
Although this won't help you with photos, you may find it useful to go to Settings>General>Usage. This will give you a sorted list of your apps and how much space they are taking up. Tapping an app gives you the option to delete it (or in the case of built-in apps such as Music, to delete the app data such as songs).
Well shoot. This is going to be a colossal PITA! At least i dont use IE, anyway. Alright,then, can you please help me figure out why the phone says to check my e mail for iCloud verification but i recieve no such thing? i have 5GB availiable but cannot get access to it!
