Yes, you can free space from the phone by using a cloud service or backing up or moving files to mac/pc.

AH....is your phone saying "out of memory"? 

OR "out of storage"?   And if it is iCloud storage vs phone storage.

the solution is different.

I worded it incorrectly. I am out of phone storage. I have 13GB available on my Cloud, 1.4GB on phone. From what I can see on my phone, nearly everything is already backed up to my Cloud, except for music/iTunes which takes up the most space. This is probably a simple fix; however, I am not the most savvy with technology.

THanks.  Deleting music is an option.

do the numbers add up?  Sometimes the data clogging the phone is old messages or corrupted data.

No, the numbers do not add up. It's about 2.7GB off. Sounds like I have old stuff on my phone and should do some deleting. Thank you for the help.

I have a 16GB phone. Is that what you are asking?

Another question, the photos listed in my "photo stream"... does that mean they are in my cloud? Or are they still stored on my phone? I am too stupid to even own a phone.

WWith cloud and streaming, it is hard to figure it out.

2.7 GBS is normal for operating system.  So I don't think you have any unusual content.

photo stream includes photos on and off the phone ( as if it weren't confusing enough)
