    I didn't know this and now stuck. Oct 22, 4: I did the same thing and now have the same questions.

    I hope someone is able to answer this question. Oct 22, 5: Because many iCloud services only work on the primary account, it is recommended that you use the same primary account on all devices you use with iCloud. If you have different accounts logged in as the primary account on different devices, those services will not push data between your devices. Oct 22, 8: Yep, that did the trick. I had tried deleting the accounts, but not both at the same time. I still needed to manually move the calendar and contact data, and that took awhile and raised a few other issues, but at least I have the right primary account for use on the Mac and all of my iDevices.

    Apple really needs to make this kind of information more accessible and simplify the process.

So thank you very much for providing all of us with the solution to this latest but not last, I'm afraid issue! Oct 24,
