    Hi there and welcome to iMore.

    Some of the functions of the phone are reliant on iCloud. If you sign in, you won't see that box again.

    Otherwise, you need to make sure that all options to upload things to the iCloud are switched off, such as photo uploading and so on. To turn off Photo Stream on iPhone, go to Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream, and turn off My Photo Stream there.

    I keep having the same request, to sign into iCloud. I have tried signing in multiple times, and my phone keeps saying I have incorrect password I've changed password many times, and know I'm using the correct password, and keep getting the same thing. iPad and iMac work fine, and have no trouble with iCloud. I had no problem with this until I downloaded iOS 8. I'm on latest software of iOS 8.1 Has been a continuous problem on each update. What do I need to do? Is it not possible to have my photos and calendar, etc. to sync between the phone and the iMAC and save them? I'm new to Apple. Feeling frustrated. Have 5S.

    Any chance that you have 2 factor authentication activated? It could be the issue with repeatedly asking for a password:

    Apple started requiring application specific passwords/keys for iCloud access for apps that use iCloud data when 2 factor authentication is active. I first encountered this issue with Fantastical.

    If you see this prompt, log into your iCloud account and create an app-specific password. Enter that new password in the prompt, and everything seems to be good now.

    This is a reminder that starting tomorrow, app-specific passwords will be required to access your iCloud data using third party apps such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or other mail, contacts, and calendar apps.

    If you are currently signed in to a third party app using your primary Apple ID password, you will be signed out automatically when this change takes effect. You will need to generate an app-specific password and sign in again.

    To generate an app-specific password:
    1. Sign in to My Apple ID (https://appleid.apple.com)
    2. Go to Password & Security
    3. Click Generate App-Specific Password
