    Hi
    I have an iPad 1 (IOS 5.1) and an iPhone 4s (IOS 5.1) and I'm using iCloud to sync my calendars. I don't have a Mac or any other Apple devices.

    I am finding that my historic events more than about 4-5 weeks old are being deleted from my iPad & iPhone calendars but seem to be retained on the iCloud calendar.

    I have switched off iCloud on the iPhone for now to try and resolve the problem but so far no change.

    I have seen posts pointing to iTunes and changing the "do not sync older than 30 days" option but that only seems to link to Outlook and not iCloud.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I retain all my events on my iPad and my iPhone as well?

    I am having the same problem. I went back to search for events only to find that everything had been deleted. Is there a way to keep all things on the calendar until I want to remove them????
    This is really annoying. All help and advise appreciated.
    Thanks

    I have the same problem. I have lost all entries from January to March. I need to keep the entire year for work.

    Yes, this is right. You all must have "delete older than 30 days" selected. It's in the device itself not iCloud or iTunes.

    I have mine set to All Events (under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Calendars > Sync > All Events), and my calendars have been saved for years, accessible via all my iDevices. I've never lost a single calendar entry that I can recall.

    I use gmail as main mail account and not iCloud. I have never lost any emails using this method so I don't understand the issue. I advise my clients to set up a gmail account and forward all accounts through gmail. My only thought is the device ie iPad is not set up correctly so emails after 30 days are being deleted automatically
