    So I now have some photos on Photo Stream that are over 30 days old, but they are still showing up.

    I only have 200+ photos in Photo Stream.

    I thought 30 days or 1,000 pics (whatever came sooner) would cause pics to be removed.

    Thoughts?

    How many days past 30 has it been? (31, 32, 33 etc...)

    It supposed to be 30 days or the first 1,000.

    I've never let my Photo Stream go longer than a week before I end up Resetting it.

    It's been about 33 to 34 days. Since iOS 5 was released. I took a couple photos with my ip4 that day.

    How do you reset it? I can turn it off in the iCloud settings and delete the photos, but when it's turned back on, the old photos are still there.

    You'd have to go to iCloud.com and then click on the advance link on the top right corner, there you'll see a reset option.

    Same here - I have photos in my stream that go back to Oct. 14, which I think was the day my 4S was delivered to me (now a total of 828 photos). Which is something like 43 days ago.

    Not that it's a problem, but I'm curious as to why the 30-day deletion is not occurring. Could it be that Apple just hasn't turned this piece on yet?

    (Makes me want to snap 175 pics today to see if the 1000 cap is being enforced.)

    Why would you want to re-set it so often?
