    iCloud for me works flawlessly, but for my fiancee it is being a PITB. iCal is not syncing with iCloud, and there for not syncing with her phone. I have everything checked to sync and unchecked and rechecked again. Different calendars are synced, but all of the different calendars are empty. What can I do to fix this?

    one possible fix:

    i had a similar issue. two iCloud accounts (one for my appleID and one for my migrated MobileMe account) and one set of devices - iPad, iPhone, mac.

    i got everything set up the way i wanted first, sans content - basically i wanted all devices synced through the iCloud account so that i could ditch the secondary account.

    i went ahead an added the second account to the mac, did a select all of the calendar events, then dragged onto the desktop. then i created an "Old" calendar on my primary iCloud account calendar.

    finally, i doubled clicked the .ICS file on the desktop and told it to add all those events to the "Old" calendar. then i deleted the secondary account.

    only downside was losing all the calendar designations for those old events. so that requires some manual entry/changes.

    i'd love to hear if someone found a way around that bit.
