    Struggling to get ipod and ipad to share data via icloud

    Hi

    I have an ipod Touch (4th gen. ios 5.1.1) and an ipad 3 (also ios 5.1.1) I would like to use icloud to sync my calendar and address book between the two.

    My problem is that I bought the ipod last year and the ipad this month. In between times I have changed email providers, so my username (email address) is different on each device. I have tried to change the email address details on the ipod touch to my current address, but the system tells me that the username I have chosen is already taken (Yes, by me!).

    I cannot believe this is a unique situation, but the problem has me completely baffled. If anyone out there in i-land can point me towards a solution, I'll be very, very grateful.

    Thanks for your time in reading this.

    Delete any iCloud accounts you have in Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendars; on both devices.

    Pick one iCloud account, whichever one you like and seems to work.

    In Settings - iCloud sign in with that account on both devices.

    Do not create an account. If prompted choose to use an existing account. The account must be the same on both devices for them to sync.
