    I cannot start to explain how disappointing and frustrated I am with Icloud. How could apple have released such a poor and horrible product. Cal, contacts do not sync properly/ It takes about 4-6 minutes for icloud to load on my mac mini (hardwired) then once I am in it takes another 1-2 minutes to load each folder I try to access and how many times to I have to ask the login screen to save my password?? I just tried to send an email with my PC (work) and logged into icloud. Every time icloud did an auto save it deleted sections of my email. So if I had 25 lines in between saves them on the next save it may delete 6-7 lines. FRUSTRATING to say the least.
    I have been a loyal apple follower since the 80's and I think Apple is falling back into the same problems they had in the late 80's and early 90's. Apple needs to get their act together because they created this market and everyone else is following, but with this type of products the competitors will surpass appple in a heart beat!!!!!!!!!

    Perhaps you need to look for some other explanations other than a blanket condemnation of the product

    I have not experienced these issues, and neither have the majority of the users
    There may be some minor glitches along the way, but your issues seem to be beyond that scope

    If the product itself was having these systemic problems for all users, it would have been shut down by now

    FWIW, it has been a flawless transition for me and many others
    Again, there are some reported glitches for some users, but you may have some bigger problems somewhere

    OP, you're doing it wrong.

    Works fine for me, and many, many others.

    sorry OP, but your experience is not typical. I don't know if my experience is typical either, but it has been great for me. I have a few minor gripes, but overall its been fantastic. I wish the email was a bit more full featured, and it'd be nice to be able to delete photos from photo stream, but other than that, i love it. i'm using every aspect of iCloud that is even available (besides iTunes match, although I might sign up for that too), and iCloud has been amazing.

    Been working great for me. But I do not use the web site www.icloud.com very often. I use the native apps on my macAir, Mac mini, iPad and iPhone. All sync fine.

    Not experiencing any of these problems and am very happy with this FREE product. If you don't like it, don't use it. It's not costing you anything. Oh and nice first posts BTW.
