Mate, I've spent ages looking for something easy or something obvious in the iClouds web interface but, as you noticed, nothing is where it supposed to be.
No worries! :-
Gladly I've found this (official) manager for the iCloud Account and guess what. it does have the option to downgrade the storage to Free 5Gb or to upgrade your storage limit.
Enjoy your time!http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1455
But if you'r using Mac you already have it on your computer. Check this out: http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/mac.html
Oops I have all Macs (iPads, iPods, iPhone, iMac, Mac Mini.
I am not able to click through on the iCloud manager built in to all of e above. VERY frustrating. I have never used 25 gb on the cloud and never will.
How do I downgrade the 25 gb I will NEVER USE?
The iCloud manger will not allow me to click through when I select the downgrade.
You didn't need to do anything. People on the free extended storage as a result of migrating from MobileMe will continue to have it until 30 September 2013 at which point the account will downgrade to 5GB. If you want to retain the extra storage you need to cancel the downgrade: you will then be charged on 1 October 2013.
"You didn't need to do anything. People on the free extended storage as a result of migrating from MobileMe will continue to have it until 30 September 2013 at which point the account will downgrade to 5GB...."
I understand that is what is supposed to happen. We were also supposed tho be downgraded THIS Oct. first as well. All I am asking is how do I downgrade NOW. BEFORE the next 'glitch' charges me the $40.00 that I am not permitted to downgrade out of NOW.
The free extension will run until September 30 2013 and at that point the account will automatically be downgraded"
Ok I will post this one last time;
Why can't I downgrade NOW? I will NEVER use the unwanted 20 gb. I do NOT want it. The downgrade was supposed to happen THIS October first, NOW it's NEXT October first. The 2050 glitch happened in the interim. What will the next glitch be? Will we all be charged the bleeping $40.00 and then have to somehow prove that we didn't want the 20 gb that we are forced to have in our accounts now?
I DON'T want it.
I DON'T need it.
I WON'T use it.
Why CAN'T I opt out NOW?
Now NOT a year from now, or when some other glitch puts us all in another box we have to wait for a big corporation to let us out of.
I want my .mac email I DON'T WANT THE $40.00 extra 20 gb.
How do I opt out NOW, this year?

I just let it go and got the 5 GB free plan eventually and never paid a cent.
Exactly. That's what I told people would happen but if people won't listen to what they're told what can you do? But you have a point about the documentation - it is all there but it's not as clearly laid out as it might be. This is true of a lot of Apple's documentation - the information is there and is almost always perfectly accurate, but it's not always obvious how to find it.
