    Got a similar problem.


    Photostream is "on" on my iphone, ipad and apple tv - but all the iphone photostream photos aren't on the ipad or apple tv.

    Hey guys, I had the same problem but as somebody else mentioned, if the battery is below 20%, the photo stream will not work. Once you get it charging and reaches 20%, snap a picture and ta-da!! The sync will work again :) Apple ought to have informed us about this in all honesty

    I just don't have any photos doing anything. I have everything set correctly. It worked for a brief time since I downloaded Lion 2 weeks ago but was very slow to push...continuing on until for the last day nothing I took yesterday has shown up. I have double checked all my settings on iPhone and MCP (only 2 devices), repaired permissions, reset pram. Nothing moves.

    I was able to download photos from my laptop to photostream and they showed up on my ipad3, but nothing shows up on my iphone 4s. 


    I have deleted icloud from my iphone twice and it makes no difference.  Ipad is working fine, iphone -- nothing.


    I haven't seen a solution for this anywhere yet.  ???

    I'm travelling and so I bumped up my data plan on my iphone 3gs and my ipad2 3g so I could get all of my vacation photos and vids into icloud, but nothing is getting backed up. I have tried everything mentioned here in the forums with no luck. I tried turning imessage off, for whatever reason that would prevent photostream from working, I tried using wifi and cellular, but still no photos in icloud. When I go to icloud.com on my ipad2 or my iphone 3gs, it redirects me to a setting up your icloud webpage. I'm really getting tired of the changes in Apple's cloud services.

    I can confirm the same behaviour:


    1) Take photo when charge at a decent levlel (>20%)

    Result: Photo should be streamed.


    2) Take photo when charge <20%

    Result: Photo will not be streamed


    3) Charge iPhone until charge >20%

    Result: Photo not yet streamed


    4) Charge iPhone until charge >20% AND THEN access the photo app and click the Photostream album

    Result: Photostream kicks in and starts streaming the photo(s) taken when the charge was <20%


    Not sure why step 3) didn't automatically stream - maybe a coincidence that it started to stream as I accessed the app.


    Photostream only works if both the the sending and receiving device are connected to wifi.

    If you take any photos outside of wifi range then assuming battery charge is sufficient, the streaming of photos that were taken outside of wifi range will begin once both devices become connected to wifi.


    There does appear to be a random bug that causes the odd photo not to stream - even if all the conditions above are met. There's many reports of this and I've experienced it with just 1 photo out of about 500 (so far!).

    My photostream (PC running Vista) does not work at all.  I've turned it on and off from my phone, ran the "fix" on my pc.  and even tried placing photos from my pc into the inport and export folders.  Still nothing.  My photos will not sync.    I started getting this message a few days ago.Capture.JPG


    I give up !!!

    I had problem until tech support gave me this SIMPLE solution.


    In iphone settings, go to PHOTO STREAM and make sure it is ON.


    -----Open itunes on your computer and plug iphone in. 

    -----Click your iphone on the left menu. (highlight it)... you should see PHOTOS to the right pop up in the main window.

    -----Click on PHOTOS and make sure the box "sync photos" is checked.


    If it is not checked, it will not sync anything.     Here you can choose to sync all your photos, or just ones in specific folders.

    Hope this helps.

    Did exactly what you said, and still nothing.  I can get pics from my pc to my phone, but not from my phone to my pc.

    Hey jb3237, After mine started messing up Again, I found what seems to be a permanent solution.  Go to your Start, Control panel, Remove programs, and delete icloud.  Nothing will be erased.  Then, download icloud again and reinstall. 


    I did this and finally things started acting right.  Make sure your setting are correct on icloud when you start it up again.   Hope this helps.  Let me know.

    Thanks, I did that.  But now how do I re-download Icloud ?

    Gyver is correct, it is about battery level. I faced same problem and solved the issue after I red this reply, thanks.

    It's definitely not about battery level! My ipad2 is sitting at 82% and still not working. Just took a photo on ipad2 and it's in the camera roll but not in photostream but is in my phone photostream which is sitting at 93%. Can't believe this hasn't been addressed!

    Oh and I deleted iCloud the iCloud account on the iPad then signed up again and nope still doesn't work!
