    If you have Photo Stream turned on in the iCloud section in Settings for both the iPhone and the iPads, any pictures you take with the phone should sync to your iPads.

    I did it!!! I did have the Photostream on, but I had to click on the name, Photostream, in the Photos App. in my iPad Mini. Then I watched the photos populate on the screen. On my Ipad 2, it did not work. Maybe it does not work in older iPads. Thank you so much for your help!

    You're welcome! :)

    Did you have wi-fi turned on on your iPad 2? If I recall correctly, the photos will only sync via wi-fi.

    I have an iPad2 and an iPhone 4S. So far, I've chosen to not put my photos in the cloud. I've been using a very simple app called Photo Transfer App by ERC Lab to do the transfer. You download the app to both devices, open it in both devices, then pick the photos to transfer and hit send. (That's the basics, anyway, although there are some additional features you can use.) It works fine and is fast.

    What version of iOS do you have on your iPad 2? Photostream requres iOS 5.

    I thought that I did. All that I can find is that I have 6.1.3. The iPad says that all my updates are up to date. Is ios 5 listed on the iPad?

    If your updates are up to date, then I'm not sure why Photostream is not working on your iPad 2. Have you tried rebooting it?
