    I'm a little confused and hope someone can help me out with an iCloud question. I'm using iOS 5 Beta 7 and I have OS X Lion. Previously I used MobileMe and when I added a contact or calendar appointment for example on my iPhone it would add the same info almost instantly on my MacBook and on the MobileMe website which was Amazing. What happens in iCloud does it only backup at night when plugged into a power source and the phone is not in use? If this is the case it isn't as efficient as MobileMe? I'm hoping it will be the same but I need someone who's used iCloud to confirm this for me.

    Many Thanks

    It should work the same way as mobileme. U need to set up your mac with the icloud account as well and not your mobileme.

    In order for things to sync on your MacBook install the required software, iCloud for OS X Lion beta 10

    It works as described when you install the correct software as instructed.

    You can manually back up your data by pressing the "backup now" button, but it is not the same as the sync.

    What error does it give?
    What are you currently running 10.7.2 or 10.7.1?

    At present i'm running 10.7.1

    I'll try the install again and tell you the error messages

    EDIT:

    Mac OS X Reversioner can't be installed on this disk. The volume must contain Mac OS X version 10.7.2 11C48

    Mac OS X Update Combined can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update.

    The reversioner is only needed if you are running 10.7.2

    Try just installing the update.
    From the seed note,
    Since you are running 10.7.1, do not run the Reversioner.pkg since you are not running 10.7.2

    Ah just figured out tonight why I couldn't install to 10.7.2 it's because I have Lion Server

    I got a workaround to get it installed thankfully.
