    I posted this in the Apple support forums, but thought I'd try here also.

    I have a 4S that that has been working flawlessly (syncing calendar and contacts) with iCloud since I got it. Recently, I finally updated to 6.0.1, The same day I updated my 4S, my wife got a 4 that we also set up with the same iCloud account so we could share calendar and contacts. Since that day, whenever I open my Outlook 2007 calendar, I have 3 calendar tabs; "Calendar in iCloud", "Home in iCloud", and "Work in iCloud". Home and Work are new, and I can not figure where they came from, or what their purpose is. I DELETE both, and they just reappear when I close and reopen Outlook.

    Can anybody shed some light on what these are and what they are for?

    Thanks...

    Going to bump this in hopes somebody knows and just hasn't seen it yet.

    If "bumping" is against forums rules, be gentle please...

    I believe they are default iCloud calendar names. Try logging into iCloud.com and looking at your calendars and deleting them from there. You should also be able to do this with your phone.

    As an asideyou can share iCloud calendars as read only or read/write so you and your wife don't need to share an iCloud ID to see the same calendars. Just set them up under one ID, share it, and the person to whom it is being shared accepts it.

    Thank you. I did not realize that I could share a calendar as anything other than read only. That may solve our problem since we are both using the same iCloud account even though we each have our own.

    The ideal is to use separate iCloud accounts for iMessages, FaceTime, mail, etc. and have a joint account for iTunes and App Store purchases. You can also share reminder lists although you may have to do that they the web interface rather than on the phone.

    Thanks again for this - seems to be working well. What I am trying to do tonight is figure out a way to "share" the Notes from my iCloud account with my wife's iCloud account. I have spent 30 mintues searching with no joy - just finding references to sharing across different devices with the same iCloud account.

    Anybody?

    Thanks...

    I don't think notes can be shared. Depending on the type of Note, I suppose you could copy and paste into a Reminder.

    OK - thanks. I figured as much as I could not find any way to do it in the blogs, but it never hurts to ask.
