iCloud Not Floating – Migration Issues
Along with the release of iOS 5 on 10/12/2011, iCloud was launched. Of course I upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 5 that morning. When I got back from lunch I attempted to migrate my MobileMe account to iCloud. I say attempted because the migration failed.
I got this “Please try again later” error message all day.
On Oct 13, 2011, I tried again, then I got the infamous overloaded error message. It feels like twitter’s *at capacity* error, lol
On the evening of Oct 12, 2011, I proceeded to migrate my wife’s account over to iCloud. While her account did not throw an error message I received several never-ending loading graphics and timeouts. To top things off, her migration deleted ALL of her CONTACTS. You can imagine how frustrating this is to an end user that relies entirely on Apple’s @me.com. Lucky for her I had a backup of her contacts as was able to successfully move her over to our new exchange server on ricketts.co
All in all, I am not impressed with iCloud *at all*. Giant FAIL.
