    I've got the same problem. Could it be due to the high amount of traffic trying to upload to iCloud?

    Can you only upload 5GB of stuff to iCloud? I still don't really get how it works. /noob

    You get 5GB free with an Apple ID - you can get more by paying to upgrade. If you had a MobileMe account, you roll over to iCloud with a 20GB upgrade paid up until June 30, 2012.

    Lame. Guess I have to rely on wireless sync.

    I did have that very same problem straight after updating to ios 5. I left it overnight and the next morning it just worked and the error was no longer there. Not really sure what happened, guess every one tried at the same time, or my Internet was playing up as usual.

    I just thought it was worth mentioning that iCloud doesn't offer Gig for Gig storage... the way it stores the file on it's servers needs a lot less space than they do to view them on an iDevice. I backed up 7GB and it took only 0.9 gb of my iCloud storage space. Their own blurb about icloud says that 5 is a huge amount of storage.
