    I have an iPhone 4 and iPad and I have ungraded both to the latest IOS5 and installed iCloud however I can't get either of them to back up, it just keeps saying ' there is a problem' and 'try later' which doesn't really help me. I have everything switched on and set the same on both derives yet nothing happens. It is extremely frustrating, any help would be good!!!

    Welcome to our forum! I moved your thread to our iCloud section and added to the thread title. Hopefully, someone will chime in to help you.

    :)

    Anyone? Please? If you search for iCloud threads, there's nothing comes up as an iCloud forum, but most of the threads concerning icloud don't seem to get any response. Surely someone can give some help here.

    Thanks. The iCloud backup problem page 2 seems to be the nearest help, but that's a month old now, and I'm still having the problem. I've replied to the thread, so will see what happens. But it still doesn't tel me where th iCloud section on this forum is. I'm blowed if I can find it!

    iCloud is under Sub Forums in iPad Help section.

    Took me a while to find it!

    So I'm having the same problem. I can't back up to icloud. I have tried over and over, but it just keeps saying verification timed out, and backup failed. Try again later. I have deleted my iCloud account, and tried to set it up again, but still no joy. I need to back up to iCloud, because my MacBook is out of action with a hardware problem, so I can't back up to it. My reserve iBook only has MacOSX10.4 , so I can't back up to that, as iCloud needs at least MacOSX10.5

    Does anyone have any ideas what I can try next? A. reaching the end of my tether, and beginning to think iCloud is a complete waste of space!

    Thanks to anyone who has any suggestions!
