Welcome to the Apple Community.Photostream only holds photos for 30 days, the 1,000 only comes into play if you have more than a thousand photos that are less than 30 days old.

I was not aware of that anymore. The more confusing I find it that the Fotostream album on iPhoto show the last 1000 fotos (last five months) while the Fotostream on iPhone shows the three months before the last two months.
I was able to fix the "12 months" album issue with the info from here
and now I've reset the the iPhone photostream (deleting all photos), so maybe that will help for the future.

Your devices may not delete older photos, but photostream in the cloud will only hold 30 days worth. If you were to turn photostream off on a device and then back on, you would find only 30 days of photostream photos would be returned to the device.

Hi Winston, after resetting the Fotostream on the iPhone and connecting it to a wif, this is exactly what happened. Let's hope the data bases don't get corrupted again.
