    Start here:
    Apple - iCloud - Your content. On all your devices.

    Come back when you have specific questions.

    As more developers start supporting iCloud documents and data can be synced between the phone and computer and other iOS devices. For example iWork does that now - if you open a document in pages on your iPad and make changes, then you go open it on your computer, all the changes will be there automatically. Game progress, you current page in a book, etc.

    iCloud's backups and email/contacts/calendar sync is just the beginning.

    Just not having to depend on a computer to setup and sync devices. Even having an available backup
    To restore in case of a device switch.

    iCloud backup and backing up from a computer would do the exact same thing. One of the features that makes iCloud great is you don't even need to have a computer, because he cloud takes its place. So yes. Backing up with iCloud is the exact same as backing up on your computer.

    So you can only store music in iCloud if it is purchased through iTunes? Is that correct? There is no other way to store music on iCloud?

    For the time being. iTunes match is exactly that and it's coming very soon but will be a pay service.

    they show up in an album called "photo stream" on the device(s). my favorite feature of photo stream is the ability to drag photos on my PC into the photo stream uploads folder and having them magically pushed to my 4S and iPad2. I LOVE not having to plug each device in and sync the pictures.

    Do you have to be connected to anything when you turn photo stream on? Wifi? 3G?

    My husband and I have always used the same Apple ID for shared purchases and iPhone backups. Now, our iPhones are syncing to the same iCloud! What do we need to do?

    so if icloud only gives you 5.0GB of space and you have used 11.5 GB of space on your phone with all your music pictures apps ect you have to buy more space from icloud to hold all your data? you only get 5.0GB of space?

    We have this situation as well and our solution is this:
    - Use same AppleID for itunes app purchases and syncing to the computer (itunes), this way we don't have to pay for the same app twice.

    - Use 2 different AppleIDs when syncing to the cloud, yes, this is supported and it works. So we're backed up separately over the cloud and each have 5 gigs and our calendars etc.. doesn't get mixed up
