If I create a Pages,Numbers,Keynote doc on my iPad 2, it pushes up to iCloud no problem. It will not, however, push it over to my iPhone 4S. Yes, they are on the same iCloud account. Settings are all switched on.

 

Photostream, however, does work.

Pics taken with iPhone move to iCloud, appear in iPhoto, come back down to iPhone photostream.

 

It's just the documents suite that will not propagate to iPhone.

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

    I just had this same problem and managed to fix it. Here's what I did:

     

    • Open Settings app
    • Go to "iCloud"
    • Scroll down and tap on "Documents & Data"
    • Switch the "Documents & Data" toggle off. You'll get a warning about erasing any data stored in iCloud.
    • Launch Pages. You should get a notice about not being able to use iCloud to store data.
    • Go back to the Settings app, back into iCloud -> Documents & Data -> switch on the Documents & Data toggle.
    • You may need to back out to the main screen in the Settings app, then go into Pages settings, and flip on the "Use iCloud" toggle.
    • Open Pages app again.

     

    After resetting iCloud document & data syncing on my device like this, Pages started syncing properly with iCloud. Any documents I edit on my iPad now show up on my iPhone.

     

    Hope this helps.

    Same problem exactly. Solution above doesn't change it.

    I have the syncing problem as well but I don't have a MobileMe account at all...

    I just tried a system restore and now I can see the uploading bar at the bottom of the document I created on iPad, but it stuck at 50%... I guess I somehow made a progress, before the restore, I didn't even get to see the uploading bar. All I see is an arrow pointing up at the top right corner of the file...

     

     

    Update: Okay, I lied. I just went back and checked the "uploading" documents again. The annoying arrow magically returned! I spent hours on tweaking it and reset all settings. And all efforts are in vain! Who can help me!

    Here is the solution;

    Tap Settings- general - reset - reset all settings  on iphone

    After doing this step, pages and other I work elements sync properly with i cloud.

    That approach did not work for me.

    I deleted the apps then reloaded them. On opening the menus give the option to connect to iCloud. Confirm and my iCloud access was restored.
