    I am running IOS 5 beta 4 and i cant go back to IOS 4 because i cant live without iCloud. I am using iCloud for Mail, Notes, Reminders, Contacts, Calenders, Documents, Backups, Bookmarks and Find My iPhone.

    Not me. I'm still pissed off my iDisk is going away. I depend on it.

    iCloud gives you 5 GB for free but i dont think that is for file storage like iDisk was used for

    I'm not sure about the details but i think apple will convert your mobile me account into an iCloud account...Im a developer so i had to create and iCloud account becuase i didnt have a mobile me. When you sign up for iCloud they give you a me.com email address tho...

    No problem. If you have any other questions about IOS 5 feel free to ask me.

    OK I do have one question, will I have to upgrade to Lion on my Mac in order to fully use IOS5 on my iPhone and iPads or will they be independent of each other?

    It depends on what you will be using...If you just want to use photo stream i don't think you have to update to lion because iPhoto has an independent download. If you want to use all of the other features of iCloud i think you might have to upgrade. I took this screenshot from my developer account.

    Not me. I ditched iDisk when I found out how much better Dropbox was.

    AH ok, thanks. Hope the bugs are fixed on Lion before iCloud goes live to the public, then I will upgrade. Too nervous now to upgrade.

    2GB but you get more the more people that are referred (plus there are other ways to get free storage). Otherwise, Dropbox Pricing.

    I'm definitely interested in iCloud though. It seems to work very well on my iPhone already.

    officially you can't, not yet anyway. I've already mentioned about this and the only workaround in the thread you made tho.

    well since they removed a delete button from beta 1 on the iPad in the photostream, i doubt it, but i'm hoping there's been enough complaints that they will put it in. just have to wait and see.

    I'm waiting to use iCloud until it is fully released with iOS5 GM.

    It's too slow and buggy right now for me.

    It was really buggy for me in beta 3 but beta 4 has been running better overall

    I will use it when iOS5 final is out...
    Don't like these beta-versions, they often are very buggy :)
