    I tried all of the above, but still an appointment entered into my Ipad calendar will not show up in my Iphone calender. I have a Icloud account, and my Itunes tells me for both devices that the synchronization is happening by air…but it isn’t the case.

    What else can I do? I prefer not to go via my PC because I am on the road quite often, and don’t take my PC for that.

    Thanks,

    Dirk

      Dear Dirk,

      You won’t be able to directly synchronize your iPad and iPhone
      You will need your PC for that

    Wondering if theres a way to sync iCal from iPhone directly to iPad? I dont have a Mac was thinking of getting an iPad, they need to make iCal for Windows! And make Reminders for Windows too

    • iPhone Expert says:

      Dear Memphis,

      Unfortunately not
      Your best bet is to use iCloud and have all your devices synchronized with iCal

    Hi,

    Went to your section re syncing iPad with iPhone wirelessly – simple- not so it seems, when i go to to settings/mail, contact calendars/ then to calendars to select sync one month back, there is no option “sync one month back” there are only 3 options available under calendars and none are relating to syncing at all. Can you help?

    • iPhone Expert says:

      Dear Bel,

      Make sure to update your iPhone software to the latest possible version using iTunes, this should solve the problem
