    Default iCloud Syncing Issue

    Hi everyone,

    For some reason my iPhone will not complete a backup to iCloud. My iPad running iOS 5 beta 5 does it no problem. My iPhone will sit at "2 minutes remaining" for about 10 minutes. Then it will jump to "There was a problem completing the backup. Please try again later". I've only sync'd with iCloud successfully ONCE with my iPhone. I recently purchased more storage with the iCloud because I didn't have enough, so memory shouldn't be an issue. Sometimes the progress bar will show almost complete, then I'll lock the phone for a minute, unlock it and the progress bar will jump back to maybe 5% complete.

    Is there a magic trick I need to do or a special dance to get it to sync properly?

    well it is still in the beta phase. not so sure if i would go as far as what it appears you are attempting

    maybe just wait until all the bugs get worked out and it goes public?

    It happened few times with me but I did it successfully after few days. There may be temporary issues and solved later on. So I would suggest you to try it again.
