    or is anything and everything that gets in your phone going to wind up on icloud and if they do, you have no way of deleting them? sure you can opt to not synch photos or whatnot, but if you do, anything that goes in your icloud account stays there and no way to delete files?

    this article on the site makes it seem like that: http://www.tipb.com/2011/10/12/psa-r...-photo-stream/

    it even makes it seem like even if the photos are deleted from your phone, they will stay on your icloud? O_o

    There's a big red button under Manage Storage (which also allows you to manage what goes to iCloud) that says Delete Backup.

    so what was that article going on about? saying that unless you take 1000 photos or something, it will be there permanently, and you will be unable to delete pictures. i'm confused now.

    If you log-on to your iCloud via the web interface, you click on your name in the upper right corner, then, click "advanced"... then, click to reset your photo stream...

    Yeah, this why I don't use it. Only way to remove a photo is to nuke the whole thing. Even resetting Photo Stream on the web, the photos still reside on the iOS device until you do this:

    Tap Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream.
    Move the slider to the OFF position. You will be prompted to Delete Photos (removes all photos from your device stored in the Photo Stream album).
    Click Delete Photos to fully disable the service.
    Move the slider for Photo Stream back to ON to restart the service if you choose.

    I beleive that if you go to control panel under Network and Sharing Center it should be down on the bottom left. I have mine set stay in the notification tray.

    so if you delete all photos in icloud, can you just resynch back the photos from your device?
