Cloud access

is there any way to access my iCloud photos and videos to be able to view them on my iphone6? I've been trying to figure this out for over a year now.. I used to have Verizon and switched recently to AT&T but I still can't figure out how I can see what I've saved there in the past 5 years. I've heard lots of horror stories about data being erased or overwritten after a certain amount of time.. But unsure about the deal- any help?

This isn't going to comfort you then. iCloud backs up your camera roll to iCloud whenever your phone is plugged into power, connected to wifi on and asleep.
Every backup over writes previous backups. You have 5 GB of storage, which is easily used up if you take photos and video as often as I do. You can view contacts, Pages, Numbers documents on a computer in iCloud. Your photos are NOT visible.

To store your photo or video in a cloud that isnt overwritten, please try google photo.

Sorry for the bad news.
