I'm a Mac user and iPhone user. I have NEVER used iCloud. My data is my data, and I want it kept locally with me. I think I have it set up though, so I can use the "find my iPhone" feature. That's about the only reason I use it.
I don't do cloud computing. I don't trust anyone but myself with my data.
I posted this on this forum as it is related to technology but if there is a better place please move it accordingly.
My wife and I have been using our very first iphone for close to a year now and I never used icloud... Now I have friends telling me that I have to in order for my device to function optimaly.....
My wife however had it activated and now she cant do anything because her storage on icloud is full and she cannot access it from her phone nor computer.
So we are debating: is it necessary and is there a trick that we just dont get? We did not go to apple store yet because it is far from home so I thought a few tech gurus on ats could help me.
So the question is, is icloud really necessary or not?
I say no because my phone works perfectly and i dont use it but every one else tells me the contrary.
