    Hi, i set up my iCloud, Mac & iPhone but i have a problem between the Mac and iCloud.

    everything is doubled if i have iCloud on my mac enabled

    here's a screenshot

    iCloud unchecked:

    Mac with iCloud:


    do u understand my problem?

    edit: should i try to maybe delete all the contacts that show when i have iCloud on my Mac disabled? might it be all doubled bc my iPad 2 is still on 4.3.3 and relies on the contacts that arent on the cloud and always syncs them back?

    The thick of it
    This is becoming a well-documented but frustrating problem. iCal is completely bolluxed as well. Here's a partial solution:


    Another solution is to simply not use iCloud for now and go back to syncing with your computer.

    Hey! Do I have the option of not using iCloud and syncing with computer on my new shiny iP4s? I was reluctant to do anything iCloud until the next update.

    If I can then that's super ......

    iirc, without iCloud, it will only update your contacts when syncing with iTunes.

    i disabled contact syncing via itunes and sync the address book on all my devices/macs to google contacts.
