Pay .99 per month to upgrade it or I don’t think it will go away. I’m used to it by now.

OHH so to fix it we have to completely remove the "FREE" space we get? Ohhhh okay. I can't wait to hear the excuse from these Apple obsessed fanatics as to why this is a great idea by Apple.

let me guess...they are giving me the option to turn it off by not using it AT ALL even though we get free space? OKAY!

1. If you’re not happy with the solution upgrade to a larger phone memory. Free iCloud is only 5gb and you’re obviously needing more than that to suit your needs

2. The U2 album was able to be deleted

3. If you’re this worked up about something so little maybe go back to the ancient Nokia

bro I want to use the free 5 gb i have, thats it. WHO the **** said i need to use the rest? THE **** is the point of FREE 5GB if you are going to have a damn pop up every 5 seconds?

Thats like having a "you have a free upgrade so upgrade your phone now" pop up every damn second and it wont go away UNLESS you upgrade your damn phone. its a ****ing joke.

You’ve created this account in 2009, still moaning about things like this?! I’d have thought you either got used to it or moved on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Apple will start having Ads in between your text messages and will require you to pay so you don't have to wait for ads and these guys will say "just pay its cool."

Apples next product...iPhone comes with a FREE Charger...but it only charges 50% of your phone...to get the remaining 50% pay $10 a month and if you don't, then we will constantly interrupt your charge so it takes longer to charge.

Or...

they'll ship your items half way across the country, it'll stop just short of the location and you'll get a pop up ad on your phone that says pay $5 to complete your shipping!

I’m not sure calling people fanatics and looking for excuses is going to solve the issue. It’s simple to solve. Don’t use iCloud or use it in a way that the message doesn’t get triggered.

Just turn photo sync off in the icloud settings and install google photos.

Exactly. Free data mining included!

If there only were alternatives. Oh wait!

Well I agree it's pretty annoying and Apple should not implement it this way. It feels very Microsoft-like of the 90s. But how I solved it is to just delete all my photos from the iCloud and switch off the photo sync. If you keep the sync on it'll start to annoy you again cause every ****in photo you ever saved ends up there.

But with that workaround, you can use all other features of iCloud except the photos with 5GB...
