    Stopping iCloud
    Daughter has cloud on her iPhone & iPad finally synced after many duplicate issues, causing us a trip to the apple store & techs.

    iCloud is not activated on her macbook pro as she is still running snow leopard.

    We may want to stop icloud on the iPad & iPhone & revert back to syncing with usb. Is there a certain order to go in to undo icloud syncing? We are trying to not get a bunch of duplicates again.

    I can't see any good reason that there would be. Just turn it off on both devices. You can also delete the cloud content if you desire - but you have to delete the entire content - unfortunately. Hopefully the next rev will have a little more flexibility built in.

    Thank you

    We'll let you know the outcome if we stop iCloud syncing.

    I'd like to hear how it went. The duplicates bother me also. Not to mention all my personal info being available "on the cloud" to a good hacker.

    You don't have to use any of the iCloud services if you don't want to. Just disable them all.
