    Default iCloud Automatically Syncing Pictures

    Hello forums, I do not currently have an iPhone, but when the new iPhone comes out I will be getting one (on AT&T, it's sad they get the best coverage around my house). I have a question about iCloud's Photo Stream feature: since I will be on a capped data plan, how is the syncing of the photos going to affect my cap? When I am taking a picture, I usually won't be on a wifi network, so will it go against my data cap when iOS automatically uploads the picture to the cloud? I couldn't find anything about this when reading about iCloud, so any response would be appreciated!

    I believe there was an option to NOT use cellular data and use wifi only for iCloud stuff.

    if you're on 3G then ofcourse it will use your bandwidth to push it to the cloud. It's not an all or nothing feature you would just have to turn it off when you're not in Wifi and then when you get into Wifi turn it back on. I'm not sure if it will upload images you already took or only new ones after you turn it back on but I'm sure they will have an option to choose whatever you want to sync to photostream.
