    Other is all the stuff that isnt Apps, music, videos or photos. Jailbreak apps and themes for example. There's nothing wrong with your iPhone with it being there. The only time it really is an annoyance is if you run out of space on your iPhone.

    To shrink the size of it, just uninstall some jailbroken apps or delete a theme or two.

    It is the space the OS takes up. Including the apps that come pre installed with your iphone/ipod like the stocks weather ect.

    yeah. the 270 mb other is the space that the OS takes up, it is also considered "Other" when you jailbreak.
