I am really close to buying an iPhone 4S and switching from my BB Tour. Everyone keeps talking about iCloud. Is this going to cost extra?? I am just trying to figure what this whole switch is going to cost me Doesn't syncing w/iTunes save your photos, etc?

Thanks!

iCloud is free.

You'll need iOS5 on your iOS device (iPhone) and either Lion on your Mac.. or if you're a PC user you'll need Vista or Windows 7 as the base OS and the following:

Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, or an up-to-date version of your preferred browser is required for accessing your email, contacts, and calendars in iCloud.

Oh and yes, synching with iTunes will do that. The part of iCloud that is superior is the push synchronization with contacts and calendars.

In addition to the above - iCloud brings PhotoStream - which means all your new images (either imported into iPhoto or Aperture, depending on what you've enabled) as well as pics taken with the iPhone get synchronized across your iCloud enabled devices. I've found it very useful - although needs an easy pruning feature.
