I'm going on holiday and will only have a limited wifi allowance. How can I turn off the automatic iCloud sync/backup for the week I'm away, without getting rid of it altogether?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1

    Thanks Julian, that seems nice and straightforward.  I've been having so much trouble syncing & backing up my phone recently to get the new update that I've got a bit paranoid about it!  All sorted now, thanks very much. E of E

    Hi Julian, So new to all of this but already realize I make a huge mistake enabling iCloud. Every day I was deleting photos from my Albums and Stream on my iPhone. I come back later and they are all duped again. What is going on? I am trying to do Instagram and it's gets saved over and over and over, I think I was dreaming that I got rid of them!   I hate this.. but it just about threatens your life if you want to turn it off.  I am at the point now that I don't CARE if I lose my contacts and pictures.  I just want it OFF my iPad and iPhone.  Somehow or other I managed to disable if from my computer because I didn't want photos on there... too many. And it lets me know that it's gone every time I sign in..  have to get rid of all this.. help!!! Please?  I did what you said up there but it threatened to remove my stuff .....  Thanks in advance
