Do text messages/imessage affect the GB available on the phone?

    Yes they can make a huge difference. The pictures and movies that you receive and send with texting/imessage are stored on the device until you delete each message or the entire thread.

    This can pack away quite a lot of memory. Some people do not like to remove text messages so they just build up and build up. I checked one of my kids phones and it was over 3Gbytes of data just in texting.

  • Not much, but the apps you use and the App-data they store does make a notable difference.
