How do I synch my email, contacts, calendar on my mac iPone 5, with my MacBook that will only run Snow Lepoard, using the cloud?  Ths is frustrating that Apple did a big change between Snow Lepoard and Mountian Lion.  I.can't afford to upgrade my computer to get Mountial Lion.


I use both iPhone and MacBook for business and I can't synch the two together on the cloud.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    You can get your iCloud email by just adding your account to your Mac using these settings: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4864.  But without OS X Lion or Mountain Lion you won't be able to sync contacts and calendars using iCloud.  If you want to sync these with your Mac you'll have to go to Settings>iCloud, turn contacts and calendars to off, choosing Keep on My iPhone when prompted, then sync these with your Mac using iTunes by selecting to do so on the Info tab of your iTunes sync settings and syncing.
