I have a default ical calendar on my iphone.  I activiated iCloud and it shows two calendars (Work and Home).  I want to share my default calendar, but it is not listed in the icloud list.  What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do?


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1

    Welcome to the Apple community.

     

    Try going to settings> iCloud and disabling calendar synchronisation, restart your device and then re-enable calendar synchronisation choosing to merge when you are given the option.

     

    Note; some users have not been offered the option to merge but others have, so there is no guarantee with this procedure.

    Thanks, for your suggestion but it didn't work.  I tried it and it did not ask me to merge and I am back to where I was in the beginning.

    If you don't have too many events in your calendar, you could change the calendar setting in each events to the iCloud calendar. I appreciate if you have more than a dozen events, this may take some time however I'm not sure there is another (or should I say simpler) solution.

    I already have the default calendar synced with my work calendar (and I had someone else set that up) so at this point it may be easier to ask a slightly different question.  How can I share my default calendar with my husband's iphone without using icloud?

    But the problem is your default calendar, that's the reason your appointments aren't syncing because they are going to the wrong calendar. Any calendar can be a default calendar, your default calendar should be an iCloud calendar, it sounds like at the moment it's an 'on my phone' calendar, 'on my phone' calendars won't sync with anything.
