    The storage in 'other' category is getting bigger and bigger. For me, it is exceeding 5 G. I remember Joe Belfiore mentioned it long time ago and said MSFT was fixing the issue.
    However, why there is no single news afterwards regarding the issue?

    Well first of all you won't be able to know for sure until gdr 2 gets here if you have a Nokia phone then you might not have a problem.

    The question is has anyone experienced this problem on the 925 if so then you will just have to wait for Microsoft X_X

    It won't be fixed until Windows phone 10.

    I think in GDR3 (late this year) or in Windows Phone 8.1 (2014) but I hope in GDR2. But since the 925 already has this software and there is no 'clean' button or whatsoever it isn't really fixed in GDR2. But app developers also have to adjust their apps so it won't take up much space or at least add an option which can delete history files (the wpcentral app has that option in fact).

    Other storage always meant to be cleared by itself automatically, it's not cleaning by itself, which is the problem so hope fix is in the GDR 2.

    Other is a general OS problem. No one knows when a fix is coming. That simple. We have had a million threads about this.

    Same here. In fact, I am feeling tired of the whole thing. It has been 7 month since MSFT update its system. Also, GDR2, without Amber from NOKIA, seems very limited and unattractive. The features we want like notification centre, gravity lock, VPN, still not available.

    VPN will be coming in the enterprise package MSFT talked about and it will be in GDR3 which is coming in November or December.

    No it's coming with WP Blue in 2014. Not in GDR 3.

    I am also sick of it. Little thing like a screen rotation lock is still missing! Come on Microsoft? Is it that hard?

    Hmm... If I remember correctly, Joe said on Twitter that the Other storage is being worked on and will be fixed on the next update. Sorry guys, don't have a source (it was quite some time ago), my memory ain't the best. :)

    Yeah he did. I sent him an angry tweet.

    I think I'll do so again just to see if it's done

    yeah you keep at him. I'm 100% sure that he is totally and completely responsible for the storage issue and is personally heading the team to fix it.

    Its imperative that you show your disdain for the situation by personally attacking him and or calling him names.

    Show them you wont take this lying down!

    So does this other storage bug affect everyone eventually? I've had my Lumia 521 for about a month, and my other storage is at 650MB. I haven't noticed it increasing.

    My other storage is now at 150MB, while that's not much of an issue, it does gain when i play apps or browse the web.

    Don't get the 820. 8GB will go away quickly since you cannot install apps in the SD Card.
    For my case (actually my fds), 4GB other storage + 2GB System + a couple essential apps and ZERO games installed = less than 800mb left to use.

    The 820 was rendered obsolete in 2 months and has been a dumbphone ever since, till this day and still no news.

    Question for those with extreme other storage issues: Do you not have access to the Nokia Storage Check function, or it didn't work for you?

    On AT&T here, have 2 820s and 2 920s in the family, and all are fine after Storage Check. But it did take a long time to become avail on the 820s.

    Also, keep in mind that there ARE valid reasons for SOME other storage... 150MB or even up to 1GB can be reasonable imo. But obviously something is broken.

    Just wondering if people are not able to free up the space with Nokia Storage Check function (understanding some don't have Nokia or don't have the firmware update yet).

    I am using Lumia 520 and my other storage has took about 1.5 GB in my phone. I now have very less memory in my phone storage and have to delete some apps to install others which makes me irritating. They should bring an fix to other storage issue or should bring a feature to install apps in SD Card.
