    Are you saying that you did not choose to use iCloud? That somehow the choice was made for you?


    Once again, there are many alternatives to iCloud.


    Kerio, Zimbra, Google, Exchange, Yahoo, to name but a few.

    I needed to disable iCloud today on April 14th, 2014 because I could not sign into an alternate game center account, open links from emails or texts, or link two devices in a game called Clash of Clans. What was the solution? Signing out and disabling iCloud on my device, I tried multiple things before this and didn't expect iCloud to be the issue behind my troubles, but after reseting a majority of settings to their defaults and reinstalling apps it was my last and most unexpected resort. Back to wired as well. Hopefully if anyone is still having issues with iCloud similar to mine or anyone else's it may be the issue.

    You mean the 9 month old comments you replied to?

    I didn't take it personally. I agree with your posts.


    Other users telling you how to feel and what you may communicate is just certain personalities being condescending and snarky. If they personalize posts from other users, that is their problem. They are free to just skip over comments they don't like and therefore don't want to help the writer. Frankly, even if I didn't agree with your comments, I don't see why it is necessary to take exception to someone else's frustration. 


    And, there is no requirement or law from God or Jeebus that dictates all users on the forum must be at the same proficiency level. If you bought the products, then you have as much as right as the geek squad to be here saying what you want to say about what you bought.


    Good luck to you!

    Who are you attempting to communicate with here?

    The thread was dead 9 months ago.

  • mountainrivers Level 1 (0 points)

    So what? I'm reading the entire thread for the first time, and I don't pay attention to the dates.


    What is with the date fixation some forum users have? Newcomers arrive for the first time all of the time in still open forums and kick them start them as we look for information. Big whoop! So, as a comeback for people who think is necessary to have a comeback, it is petty, and therefore, lame.

    The point is, Apple has built its reputation on being user friendly and much more intuitive than MS/Windows, marketing its products to all levels of experience. Therefore, it is Apple's responsibility to make every effort to explain fully to its customers precisely how their products, in this case iCloud, works and what it will mean for the user. And it is Apple's responsibility to continue to be intuitive so that all levels of users can enjoy their very expensive products without spending time searching through forums for other customers to explain how Apple products work and how to save themselves from losses. The difference between what iCloud and iTunes Match does versus what many customers think they do are two examples.


    Smooth move, though, Apple utilizing its customers to provide customer support instead of paying knowledgable, well-trained employees to do it. Free labor.



    I've yet to have an Apple Genius actually solve a complicated problem.

    You should quote who you are responding to and what you are responding to.

    Then you won’t look as clueless because others can see what you are on about.

    That's the rub. Google products work great, and I actually prefer their calendar and mail program to Apple's, but dumped them because Google also scans all of our stuff and connects us where we don't want to be connected in order to gather information to sell. Google going through all of my contacts and connecting email addresses, phone numbers, birthdays, etc., with people was really angering me. I'd already stopped entering birthdays and other personal information, which was too bad because contacts are great for organizing all that information. I even stopped using my family members' real names, but Google still managed to make connections between people and their various email addresses and online accounts.


    The final straw was seeing links from Google in my contacts to friend's other online accounts, and after clicking on two of them I could see what they'd watched on YouTube. I could see that info despite their never giving me permission to do so. That meant that anyone with my email address and private information in their contacts list could see my other accounts too. No matter what I did to protect my privacy, those efforts don't make a difference if my info is in one other person's contacts list. And, because Google scans our contacts, emails, and documents, anyone emailing with us who does not even use Gmail loses their privacy too.


    Too creepy for my taste so I dumped all Google, after managing my life and family's lives in Gmail and Google calendar since their introductions to the public. It's really a shame because I do think their programs work more reliably than Apple's and are as if not more intuitive. At least, though, at the moment, Apple makes its money by selling me its overpriced stuff, not from my private information and shopping/searching/entertainment habits.

    "You should quote who you are responding to and what you are responding to.

    It automatically shows who I am responding to. Quoting what I am referencing is a good idea though. Although, I've had no problem following anyone regardless of whether they included a quote. I can read and understand to what they are referring.


    Thanks for using the same less-than-charming form of making your point by using insulting terms, like you gifted others. Not nice, and unnecessarily foolish.

    "Are you saying that you did not choose to use iCloud? That somehow the choice was made for you?"


    I think it is obvious what this person and others said. They did not say that they did not "choose" to use iCloud. They said they had a different understanding of what it would do from what it actually did. Understanding their point "isn't rocket science."

    "You mean the 9 month old comments you replied to?"


    If you say so. Are you on clock?
