    My wife and I both got two new iPhone 4s's. When I take pictures I want them to show up in her photostream, and vice versa for her pictures in my photostream. Can we do this? I've read the sticky a bunch of times and can't figure it out. Thanks.

    you will have to have 3 icloud @me addresses. One for both of you to share as your main icloud account and then 1 for each of you in your secondary icloud accounts for other features that you dont want to share.

    I did this but it's still not working. I'm not seeing two photostreams in my photos even though I have the other iCloud accounts in each phone. So here is what I have:

    Phone 1: a) master, iTab account with access to the app store.
    b) iCloud-phone 2 user id and password

    Phone 2: a) iCloud-phone 2 user id
    b) master, iTab account user id

    I only see each individual photostreams on each phone.

    But I want to see both streams on both phones. Am I missing something?

    sorry, haven't tried it myself (haven't updated the wife's iPhone yet), but the sticky on top has this info.

    Already read the sticky... like 5 times

    But I'm still unable to see my wife's pictures when she takes them on her 4s. I see mine, and mine end up in Aperture, but I don't see hers and she doesn't see my photo stream. We're using xx@yahoo.com accounts so I'm not sure if it has to be @me accounts or the yahoo ones will do.

    are you guys both using the same apple id for your icloud sign in?

    personally, I would sit back and wait since this trick has a few negative side effects. Im hoping apple will fix this soon.

    Same apple ID in the "store" setting but not the same iClound IDs. I believe this was one of the suggested suggestions in the sticky to allow purchasing from the App store but having separate calendars, reminders, etc. in the cloud.

    in order to share photostream, you both would need the same icloud @me id in the main (master) icloud, you can then setup a secondary icloud account (slave) under settings>email accounts.

    I highly advise against this as you both would be stuck sharing 5gb of icloud back up space. Sit tight, im sure apple will allow this in the future...
