I no longer have a subscription to mobileme.  Now my Iphone, Ipad are no longer syncing to my Ical.  I thought the need for mobileme left when Icloud came onto the scene.  Please help!

    Do you have iCloud setup on your Mac, iPad, and iPhone? http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/

    Are the events syncing between the iPhone and iPad but not to the computer and vice versa?

    I create the calendar event on my iPhone and nothing else is syncing.  No updates to iPad or iCal.

    There are a few things we want to check.  First we want to make sure that you are signed in with the same account on all 3 devices:

     

    • On the iPhone and iPad, go to Settings>iCloud and verify they both have the same email address listed in the Account field and that Calendars are set to On.
    • On your Mac, you can go to System Preferences>iCloud and click on the Account Details button on the left and verify that the same email address is listed here.  Also verify that the Calendar is set to on.

     

    Once you have verified that you are signed in with the same account and the Calendar option is turned on for all of your devices, I recommend setting your default calendar on your iPhone to your iCloud calendar (you'll want to do this on your iPad and Mac as well).

     

    • On the iPhone and iPad, go to Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendar.  Scroll down to the Calendar section and tap on Default Calendar. Now make sure that one of the calendars listed under the iCloud section is checked.  You'll probably want the same calendar checked on both devices.
    • On the Mac, go to Calendar>Preferences>General (if you are running Lion you will need to go to iCal>Preferences>General) and make sure the same calendar is checked under Default Calendar.

     

    After verifying all these settings, try entering an event on one of the devices and see if it appears on the other devices.

     

    I hope this helps!  Let me know if there are any issues with this.
