    THE BIG QUESTION THAT I DON'T SEE ANYONE ADDRESSING: What effect does iCloud sync, backup, and iTunes match have on our cellular data plans? If I have a 1GB or 3GB monthly limit, should I even CONSIDER iCloud? Or does it then become simply a matter of iCould, if the carriers weren't going to milk me dry.... This is my biggest concern, and until I have a truly unlimited data plan for a reasonable price (ie. not $100/ month - which is the same I would pay for a year of 55GB of storage on iCloud).
    iCloud backup only works when plugged in, on wifi, and locked.

    The rest are just text except for photo stream. You can turn each service on or off.

    Not sure about match. It looks like it stores some music locally but also shows music that you haven't saved locally but are in the cloud. Not sure if playing it causes it to save locally, or if you stream it each time.

    it says right in the article. 5gb free, 10gb is $20, 20gb $40, 50gb $100 per year. it is separate from your data usage on your plan.

    Not what he was talking about. He thought iCloud used the cellular data connection.

    no way. If you want to update to iOS 5 you need to click restore when syncing to iTunes, not update, and unless you let it back up your phone you'll lose all your contacts too. There's no jailbreak available for iOS 5 yet (that's untethered). Although rumor has it that there will be one upon release.
    ok thanks. i have backed everything up in itunes now. So when i plug in the phone i should "restore" it as a "new device"? i dont care about preservicng the baseband and i will just wait for the JB to be relaeased. i just want to make sure i dont brick my phone trying to upgrade it to iOS 5. i did and upgrade before when 4.3.3 was released and it froze the phone on the apple screen and dont want to do that again.
