    When I am in settings on my iPhone and tap iCloud, the settings loads but I get a popup with the header saying verification failed, and it says bad URL. I can ok the popup and all the settings are there, but I just tried an icloud backup and it failed.

    Everything works fine on my iPad though, so it's bit strange.

    Just hoping I'm not alone? Anyone with the problem managed to fix it?

    Any luck elsewhere?

    Hello,

    Just found your post and am having the same issue. Installed iOS 5 on my iPad and it won't accept either of my Apple ID's. Both of which use an email address for the user ID.

    Have you figured it out on your own or received a response on another forum?

    Thanks

    Not sure what you mean

    What did you change and where?

    I even tried to create a new Apple ID, but when I click on the "Get Free Apple ID" button, it displays "Cannot create apple id. Unable to connect to server". I have Internet access.

    A simple restart of the phone should fix this error.

    If not try to create a new iCloud account by adding a new mail account.

    Is the cloud server on or not?

    Seems happening to me too. Verification failed. Bad URL and seems the camera has bugs...sometimes no pix but can take pix...Apple please read this.

    This service is not fully activated yet.
    Once it is you will have a big mess.

    Connect your iPhone/iPad to iTunes, under info unselect sync iCal. This stops the duplicates and allows you to just use iCloud
