    i read somewhere (or in the release notes, i dont remember) that deleting a photo from the photostream folder also delets it from all your other devices (including PCs)

    but when i try to delete a photo it says "The photo will only be deleted from this iphone".

    so what is the case??

    Those photos were taken before you updated to 5.1.

    It turns out you can delete older (pre 5.1) photos from your Photo Stream from an iOS device. I posted the solution in the iOS 5 forum.

    Thinking back to the chaos when iTunes Match rolled out and now folks are discovering these little features I'm beginning to be frustrated that there isn't more guidance from Apple other than at the highest level.
