Photostream only stores up to a 1000 photos. And will purge any photos that are older than 30 days from the stream.

Photostream is not a backup solution.

Thanks for the response...

I understand about photostream, so you are saying there is no way of uploading my family photos to the icloud for storage/safe keeping? I thought that was what icloud was all about, not just recent photos....hmmmmm

If your photos are on your iPhone and you backup your iPhone to iCloud then they are there... Not an ideal backup solution...

Hopefully iCloud will get better and offer us a iDisk type solution as it did in MobileMe. Until then picas and like solutions???
