    Hello everyone, just signed up for the site, looks impressive. New iPad 3 purchased last Friday and it's my first one. I have a question which someone may know the answer too;
    When I purchased an iPhone I was allocated 5Gb space on iCloud, now, in addition, I have bought an iPad, do I get another 5Gb?

    Cheers

    I dont think it is Device specific rather it is Id Specific so you could have different Id's on different device and can have 5 GB space on each of them.

    No, you get 5gb free for each Apple ID. You can always purchase more... :)
    Also, whilst maintaining separate IDs just to get extra 5 gb free space in chunks will work, it may introduce dis-benefits particularly around maintaining all the ids, managing iTunes, and purchasing apps across all the devices.
