From what I understand, when I sign into iCloud it will transfer my crap from my old phone......please correct me if I'm wrong.

What I am curious about is when I do that, is it going to send all my pics off the old phone too? I don't want them on the new phone. We are keeping the old ones (in case of unforeseen emergency) and I would rather they just stay there.

Thanks in advance for your help! (y)

You can turn off the photo roll in iCloud. Sync/ backup again without the photo roll selected on the old phone. Then it shouldn't copy the photos over t the new device when you restore from the iCloud backup.
