    So I have an iMac, a MPB both with Lion 10.7.2, and an iPad2 with iOS5. All of this is syncing and playing nice together (loving iCloud!)

    Now my phone is an iPhone 3G. On iOS4.2.1

    Since setting up iCloud I seem to have two versions of all of the data now. A 'local' version, which syncs only to my iPhone via iTunes, and an iCloud version, which syncs only to the newer devices.

    The problem is that those two sets aren't the same. So creating an event on my iPhone doesn't add it to my other devices, and vice versa.....

    This is REALLY annoying, as I basically traded my MPB being in sync with stuff, for my iPhone being in sync with stuff.

    Is there any way to get syncing THROUGH iTunes to use the iCloud data? Or any other way to have my iPhone in sync with the other devices (to both receive and create events/entries).

    Apple's plan here is for you to upgrade your phone.:D

    Lol, that's clearly the intent of making it two sets of data and not a way of syncing data.

    That's not really an option for me at the moment (as I'm sure for many others).

    Are there any workarounds that people have found?
