Is there a way to set up iCloud to only make its changes and updates when in wifi range. The reason i ask is simple, i had an iPhone 3G for years and used the data connection for all the usual things and had no trouble. Since upgrading to the 4S i keep getting messages from my service provider saying I've nearly used up my data allowance so i've had to turn off most of the iCloud features which i would like to use

Settings -> General -> Network -> Mobile data.
If you turn that off, then it will limit your phone to WiFi only.
Actually, I've just been looking at the iCloud settings too, and if you navigate to; Settings -> iCloud -> Storage and Backup - under the back up bit, you can turn the back up on or off. Underneath this toggle switch it says, and I quote "Automatically back up your camera roll, accounts, documents and settings when this iPhone is plugged in, locked and connected to WiFi"
To me that suggests that iCloud only makes its backups when within range of WiFi. Maybe you have other apps active that are chewing up all your data?
Doing the first thing I suggested would ensure you only send and receive data when connected to WiFi, but that would affect all apps.Play the guitar?! Check out the [newly created]Mac-Forums guitar thread!

I do not think there is a way not to use iCloud not on AT&T/Sprint/Verizon 's network, and JUST on wifi... if you use Siri or dictation a lot, I've heard she uses a lot of data up...also push email can use a lot up if used excessively...
Hope this helps
