Since you had the iCloud turned on initially, you will have to accept the T&C anyway. You have a iCloud account! Turning it off now is to late since you used the product already.

You could call apple care to turn off icloud for you. This would take a couple of hours to accomplish so I suggest you accept the T&C and than log out from icloud via 'settings > icloud' like @Buscar said.

What version of IOS do you have in your iPod?? (See comment) The typical way in iOS 8 is Go to the Podcaster app A. In the bottom go to the search section (rightmost button). Enter a name of a podcast you know here or B. Alternatively, got to "Top list" and read about existing podcasts, peruse the Categories (top left link) and find podcasts you want to ...

No, I don't believe this can be done. This is how the service works - copies of everything in the drive is copied to all devices that have the drive enabled. You can choose to disable iCloud drive entirely, but you can't pick and choose what files arrive on which device. Other cloud storage service like Dropbox and Google Drive behave in this way as well.

You can actually enter any information as your answers. Moreover, this is better option actually as it adds security against people who may know or guess your answers. The only important thing is to remember this information or at least keep it safely. You'll need it in case of any problems with access to your iCloud account either to restore by yourself or ...

Unfortunately, it is likely that your nephew temporarily used someone else's Apple ID in order to gain access to purchases that the other user had made. My son did this on his device, against my rules. If this happened, then that other person may have initiated the lock. Since you have an invoice, proving ownership and the device is only a month old, I ...

I finally resolved this issue. Here is what I did to know which account was used to lock my iPad: 1- Go to http://www.apple.com/support/ 2- Select the device (in my case: iPad) 3- Clicked on Contact Support 4- Click on [Get Started] 5- Choose the country where you live in (in my case: Saudi Arabia) 6- Then select the problem category (in my case: ...

A solution is to create a temporary alias of your new folder. Create a folder in iCloud Drive. Right-click the folder and select Make Alias. Drag-and-drop the alias folder (little black arrow on folder symbol) into your sidebar. You can now delete the alias folder (NOT in the sidebar). Hope this helps, if not leave a comment.

Those files should be copied across to iCloud drive with one caveat, you will no longer be able to access them with any devices using the old iCloud system. It is a one way update. Here is a FAQ from Apple with more info. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201104

Apple's procedure on how to tell if a device is free from activation lock is posted pubicly: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201365 There are steps you can take on the device, but I prefer the web interface: https://www.icloud.com/activationlock/ The steps to remove a device from the previous owner is here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4515 It doesn't ...

They don't have to be the same. Sign out of iCloud in Settings and set up the new Apple ID. Then, if that Apple ID's also been applied to the stores, go to one of them, sign out, and sign back in with your store Apple ID. Source: My own experience - my iPod Touch works fine with my own Apple ID for iCloud and my family's Apple ID for the stores.

I had that exact problem and only thought every last thing had been downloaded. However when I went to iTunes on my phone, some songs had not downloaded. When I tapped them, it started the download and as soon as that was done, the message went away and my phone is now able to be backed up to the iCloud once more.

This problem has been bugging me for months. I've kept a weather eye on the Google results, poked around trying to find my own solution, upgraded to Yosemite to see if the issue was resolved there, but nothing turned up. So, during the Thanksgiving break I decided to sit down and fix this once and for all. Looooong story short, every time you add a new tag ...

The solution where you disable certain data from being backed up in iCloud is not really a solution but merely a workaround. Unfortunately, the real solution would imply you paying for iCloud's yearly subscription charges. Or keep your iPhone backup out of the cloud an on your PC instead: There is not enough iCloud storage available. How to backup iPhone ...

I eventually updated and checked myself, and the answer to my question yes: even if you don't update to iCloud Drive, iCal keeps working and syncs on your devices connected to the old iCloud.

Did you try a restart of the phone? Also go to Contacts and click the "group" button in the top left and make certain that "All iCloud" is checked.

We've had a couple of machines at work in a similar state, they were brought back to normal operation by starting in safe boot then moving the Containers folder from the user's Library folder to the desktop. This has the effect of clearing the startup caches, performing a disk check and resetting sandboxed applications back their default settings. A new ...
