Family account will not transition to iCloud. Keep going round in circles - get Congratulations message from mobileme then still cannot sign into iCloud. Have moved 2 other family accounts weeks ago but this one will not?

Keep going round in circles - get Congratulations message from mobileme then still cannot sign into iCloud. Have successfully moved 2 other family accounts weeks possibly months ago but this one will not? Am running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 OSX. All ideas welcome as these are original mac accounts and keen not to lose them - call me sentimental:-)

Welcome to the Apple Community.
Unfortunately, OSX 10.6.8 will not support iCloud. You can use the mail address from the iCloud account with Snow Leopard bot not the rest of the iCloud features. You can access then via the web browser though at iCloud.com.
To set up iCloud mail.
Delete your mail account from Mail preferences and set it up again using the Mail Server Information.
Some users have apparently encountered issues using this information in pre-Lion set ups (I haven't), Roger Wilmut has kindly provided instructions for those who find themselves with this problem.
Entering iCloud email settings manually in Snow Leopard or Leopard

  • My Itunes will not start after the latest update. I keeo getting error message tEventType : InPageError     P1 : c000009c     P2 : 00000003 . I have tried to reinstall but no joy. Any advise?

    My Itunes will not start after the latest update. I keeo getting error message tEventType : InPageError     P1 : c000009c     P2 : 00000003 . I have tried to reinstall but no joy. Any advise?

    'The installer has insufficient privileges to modify this file C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\Web kit.resources\inspector\Images\Spinner Inactive Selected.gif.'
    That one's consistent with disk/file damage. The first thing I'd try with that is running a disk check (chkdsk) over your C drive.
    XP instructions in the following document: How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP
    Vista instructions in the following document: Check your hard disk for errors
    Windows 7 instructions in the following document: How to use CHKDSK (Check Disk)
    Select both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, or use chkdsk /r (depending on which way you decide to go about doing this). You'll almost certainly have to schedule the chkdsk to run on startup. The scan should take quite a while ... if it quits after a few minutes or seconds, something's interfering with the scan.
    Does the chkdsk find/repair any damage? If so, can you get an install to go through properly afterwards?

    Perhaps that email you're waiting for was blocked as spam or is in your junk folder.  Something like that.

    Was it just this one time?  Could be that you, or your mom, were experiencing network problems.  Try again at a later time.

  • I had asked for some help with ICloud  3 weeks ago but no one answered, cloud has my old email and will not let me sign in my Iphone has not backed up in 9 weeks probably same for my iMac cannot even et to my photos. HELP please  Sandie P

    Had asked for help with iCloud 3 weeks ago.  Cloud has my old email and I no longer know the password, wont't let me sign in with new email.  When I talked with apple cust service they assured me that everything associated with apple would change over.  NO it did not! Cannot find how to get cloud to change this. My Iphone says I have not backed up in 9 weeks because of iCloud.  Can anyone help me or give me some advise please
    Thank you so very much
    Sandie P

    Same thing happened to me. My son's iPod touch suddenly started indicating that my "username or PW had changed" or was "incorrect" so I paid Apple $30 to find out that all that was required was updating the software by plugging his iPod into my computer & syncing with iTunes. My problem was then solved.

  • Tools/Add-ons, then the page will not 'load' symbel just keeps going round

    the Add-ons page will not load, it just goes round a long long time and will not open,
    WinXP, Avira AV, Firefox 6

    By default the "Get Add-ons" tab is selected if you open the about:addons page (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons)<br />
    That page tries to load content from the Mozilla server and that can take some time especially if the Mozilla servers are busy.<br />
    You can click on the Extensions tab to see the installed extensions or one of the other tabs to see other installed add-ons.

  • I cannot sign into iCloud on my iMac.  I have read all of the help information, but that isn't working.  I cannot do anything with my system preferences - like add a new printer - because it won't log me in, sign me out, forget password doesn't work, etc.

    I have been unable to log in to iCloud on my iMac.  None of the hints online have worked.  I can't sign in (with any password), sign out, the forget password doesn't work, the support button doesn't work.  It's locked.  I can't find anyway to fix this - I need to add a new printer ASAP - help!!!

    The "Mail, Contacts & Calendars" window popped up a couple of weeks ago and is asking for my Apple ID password, which it will not accept,  It won't sign me out (I am not logged in), the support or forgot password buttons won't work.  With this window stuck open, I cannot access anything on system preferences.  I can't find any way to make it go away.  I have tried both my current and old Apple ID passwords, tried using FaceTime to login with the newer password, etc.

  • ICloud/iPad 2 error: "user name or password is incorrect" when I try to sign into iCloud.

    When trying to sign in to iCloud on iPad2/iOS5 I receive User name or password is incorrect dialogue box w/ and "ok" bar. The screen freezes at this point and then it just spins "verifying" at the top. The only way to clear it seems to be turning it off. The same login/password worked on iPhone 4 and MacBook Pro. iPad is upto date. Any thoughts?

    Hi Paul -
    Well I finally chatted w/ someone at apple and was able to resolve it. First I am going to tell you what they told me, then I am going to tell you what I would do different.
    I already had iOS5 loaded
    They had me go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings
    After I did all that it still wouldn't accept the login/password.
    That is when we discovered that I hadn't set the iphone right to back up to the cloud so there was nothing there for it to open.
    Next they had me back up my iPhone to the cloud. (that took about an hour). Once it was done I went back to the iPad, you have to put some stuff in like country, blah blah blah, you are looking for the back up to iCloud, computer or iTunes. Select iCloud and from there it took about 5 minutes and everything was up and running.
    What I would do differently - I would not reset the iPad. I didn't loose anything I can't replace but my pad desktop is a mess and I have to fix all that again. I would do the iPhone back up and then once that was done try to log into the iCloud again using the settings>iCloud. If that didn't work I would do the steps above because it did work.
    Back up on iPhone: Settings>iCloud>Storage and Backup>Backup Now.
    Good Luck!

  • I have bought my iphone 2 weeks ago, but it is not working in my country I have try to desimblocked it but Apple says it is a refurbish one what can do?

    My Iphone doesn't work in my country, it seems to be a refurbish one what can I do?

    Contact the wireless carrier to which the iPhone is locked to see
    if they offer unlocking and if you qualify. Only that carrier can
    legitimately unlock your iPhone.
    How did you try to 'desimblock' the iPhone?
