Ferd II's advice helped me!
I'm reposting my puzzle in this forum. Still trying to figure out the sync problem I'm having around iCal, iTunes, Snowl Leopard, and an iCloud managed iPhone.
Any ideas about this situation?
1) Lion 10.7.4 on MBP, with iCloud System Prefs set to manage everything.
2) moved from Mobile Me to iCloud
3) iPhone 3GS with OS5.1.1, with iCloud System Prefs set to manage everything.
4) also have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 on Mac Mini
Entered 3 iCal items on MBP.
Only one of them has shown up on iCloud.com.
Only that same item has shown up on iPhone with iOs 5.1.1 (and also on my iPad).
iTunes on the Mac Mini recognizes that my bookmarks are being synced via iCloud (not a part of this story), and it reports that calendars are being synced over the air, but doesn't mention how.(Does it say that because I had Mobile Me?) Obviously, Mobile Me is closed and the Mac Mini isn't running Lion, so iCloud is not available.
So, Question 1: I've clicked SYNC CALENDARS in iTunes on the Mac Mini. Shouldn't it be grabbing that one calendar event from my iPhone and updating my Mac Minin iCal? (Do calendars synch through iTunes? Is that what the "duplication" warning is about, using Mobile Me (now iCloud ) AND syncing via iTunes?)
Question 2: Why aren't those other two iCal events syncing from my MPB to iCloud and beyond?
Question 3: I have a !-triangle on my iCal on the Mac Mini. It says: "iCal can't connect to cal.me.com...". Does that make sense because Mobile Me is gone. What about the iTunes SYNC CALENDAR option. Is that independent of Mobile Me and iCloud.
I am so confused.
Tried this suggested action: iCloud: Troubleshooting iCloud Calendar. Basically, flipped the switches on and off. Now things seem to be working, almost great.
Have created iCal events on iPhone, iPad, MBP, and icloud.com. Happily have those different events on each device. Cool!
The laggard is the Mac mini. Have tried syncing CALENDARS and CONTACTS via iTunes while wired together and also via WiFi, but iPhone and Mac Mini are just not talking. The new iCal event on the Mini doesn't sync to the phone nor do the new events on the phone sync to the Mini. Not listening and not talking.
Could this be an issue bewtween iOS5.1.1 and iTunes 10.6.3 and OS X 10.6.8.?
