Hi, i have upgraded to Mountain Lion on my Mac Book Pro, I have upgraded to iOS6 on my iPhone 4S.

 

Using Safari on my Mac, I have a page open that i would like to "bookmark" to iCloud, i click on the iCloud icon next to the address, it tells me "iCloud automatically saves open tabs on my other devices"

 

I open Safari on my iPhone .... how please can i get to the TAB i am supposed to have that is showing the same web sitethat  i am looking at on my Mac ?.

    iCloud Tabs are open windows on all your devices... If on your Mac in Safari you can't close out of it or it will not be on your iPhone running ios 6...  Open Safari on your Mac then go to iPhone Bookmarks> iCloud Tabs and wait 2 seconds for it to refresh itself... And it should appear...

    You must also be logged into the same iCloud account on both your Mac and your iOS device(s).

     

    Check your account setup in Settings on iOS and in System Preferences on your Mac.

    1.Open Safari on your Mac then go to iPhone Bookmarks>

    we would be pretty stupid to have missed something as obvious as not being logged into the same iCloud account on both Mac and iOS device!!!

    that advice sounds like something apple says lol
