I just got a new iPhone today and I am having trouble syncing my iCal to it. Prior to this I did not have an iCloud. I created one on iCloud.com but everything there is blank. The iCal on my laptop is full, but I don't see an option in preferences to sync with iCloud, only something about MobileMe. I don't really understand what I'm suppose to do. I've looked through many different forums about this, but nobody seems to talk about my specific problem. Ideas?
Side question... where is Facetime on the iPhone? I thought it was included, but I can't find it and it's not avilable through the app store.
If you are running OS X 10.6 or earlier on your computer you will want to either:
A. Sync your calendar using the USB cable and NOT use iCloud calendars (as iCloud requires Lion (10.7): http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1296
B. Purchase and install Lion assuming your Mac meets the requirements: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4949
If you are running 10.7 on your Mac (Check by going to Apple > About this Mac), reply back and we can suggest how to get the calendars on iCloud.
To your side question:
While this isn't the iPhone forum, your profile says you are using an iPhone 3G. FaceTime for iOS is available on iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPhone 4 S and iPod touch (4th generation): http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4319
Hope that information sheds some light.
