    I don’t think there is any way to do that. So, what is your reason for wanting that feature? Security? If so, I’m sure it must be encrypted when it sends.
    Or, perhaps just because the public wifi is too slow?

      Hello Gary,
      reason is amount of data transferred through data plan. In iphone you can chose that photostream will work on wifi but not through cellphone data plan, but ipad does not know that it is connected via cellphone data plan – for ipad it is just wifi.

      Ah, I see. So the situation involves iPad hooked up to iPhone hotspot. Does it really add up to that much, though? I guess it depends on how many pictures you take. I wonder if the iPad even gets those photos if you never launch the Photos app to take a look.
