    I thought the pictures went to the cloud but they seem to be stored on the phone for example i have taken 6 pictures, so 6 in the camera roll and now theres 6 in the photo stream, so 6 pictures are now 12 , if this was a few hundred thats alot of space, am I understanding this correctly??

    Yes, that's how it works.

    The point isn't to save space on your phone, it's for automatic syncing to other devices.
