    I stand to be corrected of course and will be humble in doing so. But please remind me of where I said something, (don't know what), was useless please.

    since I'm not a computer expert I attempted to instal Baikal Server with the Apple Server installed. Nothing works. Not the Baikal Server and not the Apple Server, and no one seems to really know a simple and easy way (-:

    If you have OS X Server installed, turning on the Calendar Server (and I assume the card server) is pretty much clicking a checkbox as shown here: http://krypted.com/mac-os-x/configuring-calendar-server-in-mountain-lion-server/

    It is for Mountain Lion Server, but I would imagine the two are similar.

    I'm unfortunately not a developer. I'm not in the computer and software Developement business. In your opinion, was I supposed to check the media and do google searches every day about this, for the eventuality that maybe se day local sync would be gone?

     

    What you are saying is, that I should check the media for every app that I have (about 100) in order not to miss an eventual important change in the updates. Get serious!

    I think Apple did a very good job with MobileMe. They informed everyone way in advance. I had one year time to move the hosting of all my web sites and it was no problem.

     

    Sorry, Apple did a bad job with the removing of local sync.

    I think that wiredancer intended that for me, but failed to realize who he was replying to.

     

    Same old same old.

    You are free to take no notice of the public announcements, but then you will not know what is happening and will be caught by issues like this.

     

    And it is not necessary to check 'everyday'. Once in 2 years would have been enough, and before upgrading would have been an excellent time to check.

    thanks Barney. I'll try that as soon as I'm home. Appreciate the constructiveness.

    Yes, sorry about replying to the wrong person. I didn't mean to be imprecise.

    I'll pipe down again then.

    An inability to properly identify things is very common in this thread, not to worry though, it will end.

    You can indeed cancel, as in delete,  an iCloud account

     

    Ok. Show me where the option to do just that is.

     

     

    that is the ONLY way that you can remove your Contacts from the iCloud server.

     

    Absolute rubbish! See Apple's own instructions for deleting contacts here: http://help.apple.com/icloud/#/mmfba73312

    It's as simple as clicking the contact and pressing the Delete key.

     

     

    This thread is about the desire to MANUALLY sync.

     

    Nope. As per the title of this thread, it is about "How to locally sync an iPhone with OS X Mavericks?" And anyway, I was referring specifically to an external article on zdnet previously linked in this thread.

     

    when the manual sync option was removed with Mavericks upgrade, the only way to sync is thru iCloud.

     

    More complete rubbish. You can also sync via Google, Exchange, Fruux and many other online services. iCloud is not the only option to sync contacts with an iPhone by any means.

     

    While you might believe that Apple moved away from Sync Services 2 years ago, you are dead wrong.

     

    Again, total rubbish. Apple deprecated SyncServices with the release of OS X 10.7 two years ago (read the link). "Deprecated" means no longer developed, should no longer be used.

     

    SyncServices was kept in 10.7 and 10.8 purely for backwards compatibility to allow developers time to implement new solutions before it was totally removed in 10.9. Its use was not supported nor was it further developed after 10.6.8. That is when Apple moved away from SyncServices. 2 years ago.

     

    Please, learn to check your facts before posting here again. If you don't, you only make yourself look silly posting total rubbish time and time again.

    it has been mentioned in the media here, if here means the US.  ZDnet is a media outlet and they are the first to publicize this issue. 

     

    I know who ZDnet are, I have had the opportunitity to laugh at their articles many a time.

     

     

     

    You might also take a look at social media sites.

     

    Why would I want to read Gossip outlets?

     

    When you're a one man band,

     

    Ahhh, so now we are getting the facts. You feel this is your personal crusade and have taken over this thread to use as your vehicle for such?

     

    Let me remind you that whether or not you are happy with iCloud is not the issue.

    Who is this hurting?


    Anybody who is searching for actual facts within this thread.

    Stop making yourself look foolish. If you have anything of use to add for people searching these topics, then come back and add it when you research the credibility of it first.

    I'm glad there are so many people that care about this, and not just me.

     

    My solution was to revert back to Mountain Lion.  Since my last backup with ML (Mountain Lion) is on my Time Capsule back in storage in the US, I did a clean install of ML, and then used Migration Assistant from a Mavericks backup, to transfer my data and settings.  I read about that solution on this forum.  I'm really glad that Migration Assistant is backwards compatible, for now . . .

     

    It didn't go flawlessly.  My machine would work fine after the migration was complete, but after a restart it would reboot the login screen, everytime I finished entering my password, instead of going to the desktop.  I just did the usual troubleshooting stuff over about two days, a few more clean installs in conjunction with deleting some of the newer, free, Mavericks Apps, along with some permission repairs, until I got everything working again with ML.

     

    Most of the trouble I had was likely because my backups are all on encrypted external drives, and I also use FileVault on my computer.  Once I turned off FileVault on my computer, after the migration was complete, then backed up my computer to an external, nonencrypted drive, then did a clean install, and remigrated from the most recent backup, it fixed the login screen issue.

     

    I've owned Apple products, exclusively for more than 20 years, and I'm 32 years old.  Apple's choice to discontinue using Google's database for the Map app, and Apple removing the ability to sync contacts and calanders in 10.9, is just another portion of the "features" that Apple will be continuing to offer over the next few years.  I, like many, have been seeing and reading the writing on the wall for awhile now.  I'm on a "Vintage" timeline with ML, unless Apple or a 3rd party comes up with a solution.  Apple hasn't gone back to the Google database for their Map app, despite their apologies to their customers at the time, for the iOS6 Map app being so inaccurate.  That got a lot more press, and Apple got a lot of feedback, but it changed nothing, even more than a year later.

     

    This time around, I still have done the feedback thing, and the petition thing, but my expections are low to get a fix from Apple.

    However, the market is ripe for software that would replace syncing with a cable on the Mac, as well as a company that can make an operating system for the individual who doesn't want to "step in line" with the people that don't see any value in having any deterrants for large companies or governments to store and access information that one feels should be private.  Steve Jobs might have known something about that . . .
