I have enabled iCloud for my iPod touch and enabled Calendar sync, but my calendar events aren't showing up in iCloud when I login, even after I've manually backed it up to iCloud. What's the problem?

What version of iOS is your iPod touch running? Did you do your iCloud configuration from within Mac OS X or iTunes, or from within the system settings on the iPod touch? – user9290 Dec 27 '11 at 2:31
@Wheat It's running iOS 5. I set up iCloud from the iPod touch. – daviesgeek Dec 27 '11 at 19:29

I had a similar problem with an iPad Calendar that wouldn't sync with [e.g., appear on] my other devices.

I found this link helpful:

In my case, I turned off iCloud Calendar syncing on the iPad [in iCloud settings]. I then chose to keep the Calendar data on the iPad rather than delete it.

Next, I turned iCloud Calendar syncing back on in iCloud settings, chose Merge, and bingo, everything appeared everywhere.

Hope this helps.
