    Hi

    I'm having some problems with backing up to iCloud from my iPad. When I first installed iOS5 today and setup iCloud, I used my iTunes account sign in. It synced with iCloud and performed a backup properly.

    Unfortunately I then realised that I should be using my old MobileMe account, which I successfully copied across to iCloud and setup on my iPhone. I went in and deleted my iTunes account details from the iCloud settings, and entered in the new account details. This seemed to verify correctly, and I am able to view contacts, calendars etc. stored on iCloud and save documents to iCloud from goodreader.

    However when I try to switch on iCloud backup, it displays the error message 'There was a problem enabling iCloud backup'. I have tried multiple times over a number of hours, and on several different wireless networks to no avail.

    Does anyone have any ideas where I might be going wrong?

    Thanks, Pete

    Seems to be the same problem many of us are having. Assuming it will be cleared up and also all the people who blew up devices upgrading to the new IOS. I have the Icloud backup error message as well. Perhaps the servers are stressed

    New to this Forum lark, I've successfully installed the Ios5' on IPad 2 an hour or so ago and have the same trouble with
    backing up to the cloud, not that I've managed to find it yet, I presume there must be a bit of a log jam due to the new OS,
    will probably be back later for help finding the cloud.

    thanks Pete

    Further to my previous post, I found that the settings under summary in iTunes may have to be set to back up to icloud, I tried it and although the iPad said that it had failed, the summary then thinks you have
    backed up.
    Under the settings/icloud-Backup it states "when this iPad is plugged in, Locked and connected to WiFi" what is meant by Locked, is this causing the backup failures?

    Anyone?

    HI,
    Is anyone worried about the security or stability of iCloud for backup purposes? What happens if something happens to the iCloud servers? Do they backup the iCloud to perhaps the iUniverse???

    Thanks

    Well, I've not yet upgraded to iOS 5 on my iPad2 nor of course signed up for iCloud - waiting until next week to let Apple sort of 'recover'! But there have already been numerous threads posting about the same issue you described - most feel that server overload is the culprit - hopefully as the days past this will resolve - good luck! :)

    Have the same problem,maybe time will fix it.
    I can not verify icloud account. On Ipad settings under icloud said check your email for instructions to verify this accoung.Account not verified. Never received email to verify. Tried my Apple account and it would not verify either. Need to retreve backup. I also lost all of my apps and though icloud backup would fix the problem.
    Any ideas
    Thanks
    Tom ​

    Cloud technology has and will become a dominant feature of using the internet, and security is and will always be an issue for those using its various services, whether the new iCloud or for other reasons (e.g. banking, apps, file storage, credit cards, etc.) - can we all trust the 'angels up in the clouds' - I believe this is a concern for all using this technology in the sky - hope that stability, access, and security is maintained - :)
