    Duplicate iCal entries in iPhone after iCloud sync
    I, too, just updated to ios5 on iPhone. I am getting duplicate entries in iCal and Reminders ONLY on my iPhone. I have Macbook Air.

    I stopped syncing through iTunes. When I turned on "iCloud sync" for Calendar, it said it was going to "merge" the calendar events, but instead duplicated some (NOT ALL) of them.

    How can I fix this?
    Thanks!

    You need uncheck the local calendars "From my Mac" and have "iCloud" calendar sync as your default. From memory it is in settings>mail,contacts,calendar> and then scroll down til you find the calendar settings.

    Question
    Do you mean for me to do this on my iPhone? There is no box for me to uncheck "from my Mac". Settings just lists iCloud as the sync method already.

    Btw, I have a Verizon iPhone 4 with ios 5.

    What calendar accounts do you have listed when you launch the Calendar app on your phone and press the calendar button top left?

    Oh! For the first time ever I see an "all iCloud" account listed. Then I have 4 others calendars listed below that. (I only use two). Should I uncheck the other four calendars?

    No. That didn't work. If I uncheck any of the calendars, iCloid calendar also automatically gets unchecked.

    Do you have accounts listed under the iPhone tab?

    Open up the Calendar app > Click 'Calendars' in the top left

    That will then open up the settings for which calendars to display. Then just make sure 'All iCloud' is selected.

    EDIT: I just realised that Pendlewitch told you to do the very same. If that didn't work then I'm out of answers.

    When you launch the Calendar app in the top left is a button called Calendars. If there are calendars listed under iPhone then you need to uncheck them and make sure all the iCloud calendars are checked.

    No worries Chuckoir it's taking us all a while to get this right!

    When you wrote "Do you have accounts listed under the iPhone tab?" I'm not sure where to look.

    Will lead you to this screen...



    As you can see, I have 'All iCloud' checked. You should be able to uncheck whichever ones you don't want to display.

    Yes. That's what I have. But I still have duplicate entries on my iPhone!

    When I said I didn't know where to look, I was responding to Pendlewitch.

    I see. In iTunes do you still have Sync iCal Calendars checked?

    No. I unchecked that.
    Also, as I said before,if I uncheck any calendars such as home, the all iCloud unchecks by itself !?!?!
