    both options I thought of didn't get me what I was looking for...

    1- I wasn't allowed to use "" instead of "", since this account never was a .Mac-account

    2- I did do a complete re-instal, but I didn't notice any differences...



    I noticed something else - something important I've not seen mentioned anywhere yet :

    (only) if the iCloud-server-settings are okay, there will be a "Download (Invitations)"-button (arrow pointing downward into a U-shaped plate) in the bottom-right corner of the iPhone Calendar screen

    [and if your settings are not okay, there is not button next to the "List/Day/Month"-button]


    so when I noticed that there was also a small spinning ball in the upper right corner of the iPhone Calendar screen (next to the +-button), I thought I might just have been a bit to impatient... I let it go while I took the time to sleep an extra night over it...


    and... YES !

    when I woke up, everything was synced properly !

    maybe I just had a few to many different calendars to sync over WiFi all at once...

    (I have about 20 different Calendars inside iCal at the same time...)


    now the only thing that I haven't figured out just yet is :

    why don't the new calendar-entries (aka. appointments) I make on the iPhone sync to my Mac's iCal within seconds ?

    and neither do the new calendar-entries I make in iCal show up on my iPhone... can that be ?

    my calendars have been imported automatically from iCloud to my iPhone, but for some mysterious reason, new entries do not show (yet)...


    Anyone any suggestions ?

    Thanks !

    I get Calendar and Contacts data via iCloud on MacBook Pro (Lion) and iPad2 (OS5). Needed to have same info on old 3G iPhone. As helpful as all these previous solutions are, I find issue is simply solved by syncing calendar and contacts data via iTunes, cable or wirelessly. Perhaps I'm being too simplistic, but until my 3G totally fails and needs replacing, this is good for me.

    Fantastic! The solution given by kyle67 allowed me to sync my contacts!

    Works fine here on iPhone 3G with iOS 4.2.1 with this server:



    where [uniqueid] is the same as used with CalDAV. It sync both ways.

    My 3G iPhone is no longer getting messages from my MobileMe account, and I've tried the suggestions included here. While I am able to get contacts and calendar thanks to suggestions here, I'm still not getting mail.  I followed all the steps listed, but get an error message "cannot connect using ssl.  Do you want to try setting up the account without ssl?". I gave as the outgoing server host name. What can I do to fix this?

    Many thanks!!

    Try setting incoming server to (SSL on with port 993) and outgoing server (SSL on with port 587). Both require your iCloud credentials.

  • Hrh7744 Level 1 Level 1

    Hi Chantal - I tried those changes (it didn't ask me to re-enter credentials though) but it is still giving me the same error message.

  • Hrh7744 Level 1 Level 1

    I was finally able to get incoming mail from my iCloud account on my 3G iPhone, but I still get an error message when I try to send mail. I've tried every stmp address and portal combination suggested on this forum, and wonder what else I should try. Thank you!

    In your outgoing mail server are you using iCloud SMTP Server with SSL ON, Authentication = Apple Token and Server Port 587?

  • Hrh7744 Level 1 Level 1

    In my outgoing mail server I am using, SSL is on, authentication is password checked (other options are MD5 challenge-response; NTLM; HTTP MD5 Digest) and server port 587.  I also tried using, but that has not worked either

  • Hrh7744 Level 1 Level 1

    Deggie, I tried it again, rebooted and your suggestion is working - I can send and receive mail now! Thank you so much!!!

    You're welcome, have fun emailing.

    hello (sorry from bad engish)    


    if I only sync with USB cable (ical and adressbook, not mail)(never sync with wifi), can I install the software on the iMac and keep my MM settings on 3G?

  • TonioSP Level 1 Level 1

    thanks this worked here

  • Poupounette Level 1 Level 1

    It's not working.  I'm trying to make it work.  Still trying to find solution.  I don't want to buy a new iPhone.
