    The Apple instructions helpfully give you exactly half the information you need.

     

    Sync Services will sync Entourage with your Apple applications - iCal and Address Book. So you should be able to see your calendar and contact information in those apps on the Mac.

     

    To sync the Apple applications with the iPad, turn on syncing in iTunes - connect your iPad, open iTunes, locate the iPad on the left, click it, and choose the Info tab. Choose to sync contacts and calendars. You can also turn on wifi sync, so that you don't have to connect the cable each time. (The iPad will sync when connected to power and in the same wireless network).

     

    Alternatively, you can set up iCloud if you have 10.7, and sync that information over-the-air automatically

    That won't work if Asario insists on using Entourage, as neither Entourage nor Outlook for Mac are compatible with iCloud.

    But iCloud will do the Mac (iCal/Address Book) to iPad part of the sync. He already has Entourage to iCal/Address Book syncing set up with Sync Services.

    Thanks for the help, I have done the syncing to iCal,Address bit on my mac. Contacts and calendar are now showing up on mac. I connected the ipad with USB and followed syncing instructions via itunes... I also have iCloud.  neither of these have worked on the ipad though.

     

    Any ideas?

    That won't work with iCloud.

     

    To sync via SyncServices calendars and contacts need to be stored locally. To sync via iCloud contacts and calendars need to be stored on the iCloud server. They can't be in two different places at the same time.

     

    This is why you cannot sync contacts and calendars in Entourage (kept in sync with Address Book and iCal via SyncServices) through iCloud to iOS devices.

    Ah, I wasn't aware of that! Thanks for the correction, Julian.

     

    So, Asario, iCloud won't work, but USB connection or wifi should. Make sure that iCloud is turned off both on the Mac and on the iPad, and in iTunes, you have contact/calendar sync turned on. Click Sync. Anything?

    I now have to iClouds on my ipad... my calendar have synced.  no contacts though. mail still flaky.  This isn't as easy as I thought it would be.  I thought iCloud was suppose to sync everything.
