My calendar will sync from iMac to iPhone, but not the other way. On my Phone I have set the default calendar to the iCloud calendar, and in iTunes it says sync will take place via iCloud. Suggestions, please!

Are you logged in with the same AppleID in the iCloud preferences panel on your Mac? Is calendar syncing on?

It's a terribly lazy suggestion but it does sometimes work. Turn it off and on again.

Turn of syncing on all devices, restart them and turn back on again

No way is that lazy , it's all logic and switching logic at that.. we can sometimes look too close and ignore the path of least resistance...resetting latched and locked up 'switches' is a fine idea.

I agree with the magic of the on/off switch. Sadly, the white rabbit is still asleep!

In the default calendar settings On my iPhone should be set to 'Calendar' and iCloud should be set to 'Calendar' . That's the way I have it and everything syncs both ways.

I've checked that, too. One was off. We'll hope for the best. Thanks, everybody.
