Hi,

When I try to set up the backup from my iPhone 4, it keeps saying iCloud Backup Failed! I am using my Apple ID!

Anyone else having this problem?

Thanks

Same here, I just reclaimed my *old* me.com address and re-sync'd everything. works fine but the backup just won't start on either iPhone or iPad.
I did previously set up a new iCloud address and use that for a week but have since deleted it and moved to my new/old one. I really hope that hasn't caused some irreparable issue. I still haven't made one back up to iCloud yet!

I'm having same issue. When I try to turn on backup a message pops up saying failed. Later or retry. So I can't even attempt to backup. I even tried a new email address and still nothing.

Glad it's not just me then! Hopefully it's only a temporary issue or someone knows a fix on here

Same issue here.

Although it was working, but my cloud inbox wasn't showing on iphone with other mailboxes so I deleted it and reinstalled it.

Now inbox is there but keeps failing to turn icloud back up on.

Got my backup to icloud working.

I deleted account from device then recreated it.

Plug your device into itunes and select the summary page.

Then click 'back up to icloud'

hey presto its now turned on and working.

Hope this helps

Same issues here....

I have a 3Gs and updating and restoring it this AM was a ******. It wouldn't let me restore so I had to cancel backup, and continue as a new iPhone. Bah. And now iCloud would not connect. *weeps*

[sarcasm]shoot, wouldn't be surprised if it didn't work because the iPhone4 doesn't have twice the computing power. [/sarcasm]

You may not need to delete the account--I just plugged my iPhone in, went to the summary page on iTunes, changed the backup setting to back up to iCloud. Took about 1 minute to do the backup, disconnected, and the iCloud backup setting to "backup to iCloud" was turned on.

I may never plug the iPhone in again.

Thanks, but I tried this and it didn't work.... I'm receiving the message:

iCloud Backup Failed
There was a problem enabling iCloud Backup

iCloud is turned on both on the phone itself and in the iTunes Summary.

I'm using an iPhone 4 until I pick up my 4s tomorrow.

Bingo! iCloud backup is working!

I fell back to the Microsoft "reboot mentality" and cold booted my phone.

YEAH!

OK, I finally got my phone to the point of having iCloud Backup in the on position. Now when I hit Back Up Now, it tells me there was a problem completing the backup. I've spent way too much time trying to get this to work.
