    While you can erase each photo one by one on the phone, that's a huge pain in the rear.

    I prefer to use my computer. If you have a Mac, load the program called "Image Capture" while the phone is plugged in and erase the photos from there.

    I'm not sure about Windows, but I think you can erase them in the same place you import them, if you treat the iPhone like it's a digital camera.

    Unless I am mistaken, photo stream isn't a "forever" type of thing. I think I remember pics staying for 90 days (but don't quote me in that number). I point this out because it sounds like you are expecting to be able to just use photo steam as your photo storage solution permanently, which is not the case.

    the photostream i have on my computer i think currently has all the pics saved in it since i got my phone. the 90 day thing is only what it will restore to the phone if the phone is restored back to stock. it will back up all pics to photostream, but like i said, will only restore the previous 90 days of pics to the phone.
