    Hi all,
    I'm a bit confused about the whole iCloud business.
    From what I can gather everything get's synced to the cloud and then distributed to your iOS devices, providing you have it set-up. I've set everything up and set up a test event on my iPhone to check it works between my Macbook Pro and iPhone. I then plugged in my iPhone and hit backup now, it took a good while to sync (an hour or so), but nothing has changed. My test event is still only on my iPhone, am I missing something here?

    Also, does this mean my iPhone won't sync over 3G and it requires Wi-Fi and a charging point?

    Do you have your Mac set up to use iCloud for iCal?

    Sync happens over 3G as well. It is not part of backup. It just happens.

    Things to check -

    on Mac-
    icloud is logged in & cal is checked & it is the same itunes acocunt

    iphone -
    settings -> icloud; make sure that it is set up correctly.

    web -
    try logging into and see if it shows up there.

    I just verified that photos sync after a long update process for iphoto, but that is another story.
