Will my iPhone 3GS work with iCloud? I realize I need OS5 on the phone to get the fancy stuff but will all the syncing still work with the calendar, addresses, notes and such?

iPhone 3GS, iOS 4.3.3

    icloud is part of iOS5 which runs on the 3GS ( not on the 3G ), so everything in iCloud will work.


    To be able to sync between other devices, they must all run also iOS5 and for a Mac 10.7.2 Lion. PCs with XP wont work as Vista is needed.


    So if you have Macs that can't run Lion, PCs that don't have Vista/Win7  with Outlook07 / 10 or iOS devices that can't run version5 these will no longer sync with the iOS5 3GS.

    Make sure that itunes v10.5 is needed on PC/Mac. Plug in your iphone and hit "search for software updates" in iTunes : this will download and install iOS5 on the iphone.
