    I can't make photo stream to work on my iPhone. iPad has an option under Photos & Camera called Shared Photostream but it's not available in iPhone. Am I missing something?

    Can you press the share option on a photo, then photostream and make a new one?

    Go to your pictures, go to Photo Stream tab at the bottom. Then hit the "+" to add a Photo Stream.

    You have to turn shared photo streams on first under settings -> photos & camera

    This is weird I don't see photostream when I press shared or there's an option to turn it on under Settings -> Photos & Camera. What am I missing???

    Ok I got it working. This happens when I updated to iOS 6 and I skipped signing in to iCloud. Apparently there's a new terms of agreement from Apple that I passed and somehow this turns off Shared Photostream. I deleted iCloud account and re entering fixes it.

    How I solved it "can't find shared photostream on iPhone"

    Here is how I fixed it... Go to setting-->iCloud-->photostream and make sure both "my photo stream" and "shared photo streams"

    My problem is it all the people I want to share with won't accept it because they don't want to have their Apple ID exposed. Thinking about it I never share mine either, using alias emails only.
