    Have a user calendar called "Universalis Automatic" that I can't seem to delete from the calendars in my Apple iPad Calendar App. Can someone Helen me delete it? Thanks

    The other possibility is in Settings. Sometimes subscribed calendars can not be deleted in the Calendar app, or won't stay deleted. I've seen both.

    Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars; and see if you've got a Subscribed Calendars account. Open this, select the undesirable calendar and delete it.

    Go thorough your account settings on both the iPad and iPhone to make sure they are the same.

    With each devices connected to the computer and selected in iTunes, check the Info tab. To make sure they are the same. I don't recommend syncing anything from the Info tab, but it is possible.

    Because it only syncs when you connect to the computer it has some inherent problems.

    Your stuff is out of sync most of the day. So if you do a lot of updating, you'll never know which device is right. If you sync and edit the data on more than one device, then that problem multiplies by the number of devices.

    Because of the large delays you will often end up editing stuff in several places before the next sync. This will cause conflicts, which you will have to manually sort out.

    If you also sync online through one of the devices you stand a good chance of creating loops, and seeing your contacts and events multiply every time you do a manual sync. It is easy to overlook the iTunes sync, since it is not a setting on your device. At least half the time people come here complaining about duplicate this or that, it's because they are syncing both in iTunes and online.

    In short, the iTunes syncing method is the least efficient method of syncing data that is subject to change on both ends. It was originally put in place before there were any decent online syncing available, and remains as a fall back if you have no choice, for whatever reason.

    When ever possible you should sync all computers and devices back to the same place for each account/calendar/contacts or whatever, and by preference it should be as immediate a sync as possible. It helps prevents loops, duplicates, and conflicts.

    And I realize in the below attachment the first and second options are identical. My mistake. I should have added a forth circle.

    Glad to hear it. It's nice when things work, and when you can get three different operating systems to work together it's an achievement.

    Hi Twer , I already sync my iPad iphone by not tick any thing at info tab , so I am assume that I only sync with iCloud . And I check my

    iphone 3 I have 1821 contact
    iPad 1 have 1102 contact

    As some contact like mr A appear in iphone but appear in iPad , also some contact appear in iPad it does appear in iphone .

    My question is in what why I can merge these 2 set of contact into 1 , so that both iphone and iPad have similar contact.

    I think this is because in the past I sync wrongly , hope you can advise me.

    Paul
