Is there a way to stop using iCloud without loosing the data (contacts and calander)? Wife let sprint store activate it but prefer to do my own backup on my mini instead. Looked through apples web site for info but found nothing. From what I can tell, from reading the warnings when attempting to turn iCloud off, all data is lost. Won't let me back up to mini to save the data either. Appreciate any assistance. Thanks. It's a 4S iPhone.
