I just want to know, I just want to do it safely. My phone always said it's almost full storage but I did delete all my text messages, pictures, apps, etc. I tried everything but it always said the same thing. So I don't know if I erase the content and setting will help me erase some parts in my iPhone 4s. I'm trying to make sure.

  • @Buscar Content and Settings is what is being deleted with the "Content and Settings" option, and 'content' includes all media on the device. – grg Aug 8 '15 at 16:38

No, your phone number will not be affected.

  • What about phone services, would it be affect. – P.ng Aug 8 '15 at 20:33
  • @P.ng No, they should not be affected. Any carrier updates will be downloaded automatically when the phone reboots after setting up the SIM card. – grg Aug 8 '15 at 20:43
  • So if I click erase content and settings, when I finish setting the phone, it will come back to normal as always am I right. It's my first time doing this; on July 4th, when I turn off my phone until I turn on my phone to check something until I saw all my apps has been disappear. I don't know. This never happen to me before.- grgarside – P.ng Aug 8 '15 at 20:58
  • @P.ng Back to 'normal', yes, but obviously without your content (unless you restore from backup) and all settings will be reset to factory default. – grg Aug 8 '15 at 22:00
  • Have u tried it before on your phone. It's my first time of doing this. – P.ng Aug 8 '15 at 22:36

Your phone number will not be affected.

But try to see what is occupying the space with "Settings -> General -> Usage.

Back up via iCloud or iTunes then go ahead and delete stuff.

Look for apps that use a lots of space and delete them "Delete App and Delete App again to confirm.

Your messages can contain a lots of photos send to you that consume space.

If you are unsure if you want to keep some you need to "Manually Find & Save Photo Messages".

  • Okay, I'm in settings right now, so do I click general and then go to usage. But I already delete the message but how do u delete some messages in messages (saved). – P.ng Aug 8 '15 at 20:38
