That's what I'm calling it now. Apparently I can no longer text people who have ios7.

Resetting my Network Settings appears to have fixed the problem...

So I want to load up my iPod with audio stories for my upcoming trip. (Long plane flight. :))

I was looking at the content breakdown on my iPod profile on iTunes and realized I had game content. The iPod is a hand-me-down from my nephew, so I realized the game content was probably something he had on the iPod that I can't use cause it's under his Apple ID. So I deleted it. (This iPod is so old, you can't even get games for it anymore. But it works fine for listening to music and stories.)

I also saw about 1.7 GB of "other content." It was impossible to tell what that was, but I suspected it also was stuff left over from when my nephew used the iPod. And I saw no way to delete it.

After dithering about it for a while, I decided to run the restore to factory settings option. I now have 48.5 MB of "other content" instead of 1.7 GB. Really I should have done it when I first acquired the iPod, but I guess I didn't think through the fact that my nephew's content would stay there even if I couldn't use or view it. (Plus, I wasn't really worried about space at that point, as I always had enough space for what I wanted for commutes to and from work, which is when I mostly use it.)

I have lots of space for music, stories and podcasts now, which makes me very happy.  8)
