Hi. I have had an issue in the last week which has never happened before. We have a Home Hub 2 and various Apple devices. Until last week, we had no issues with accessing iCloud emails, find my phone, Apple ID information in the settings etc etc. From Friday I got an account error message and now the only way I can access the above information is if I switch off the wifi and use my mobile network account. I looked at these messaging boards and read that I had to switch off smart setup. I did this and it worked for a day or 2. Then i had the same issues again. I did everything including off and on of every tablet and phone, reinstalling to the hub. All software is up to date (iOS 12.4) I have no new equipment in the house. Has anyone had a similar experience? Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you tried a factory reset of hub by pressing recessed button on back and holding 20/30 secs until lights flash
are you sure it is hh2 as that is old now
Same problem here, nothing seems to work, BT not being very helpful - try resetting it is about as far as they got.
Same here. They told me it had to be an Apple problem, not sure how it can be if it works over mobile network. Bizarrely it started to work again last night for no reason but has stopped working since. Very sporadic.
Having experienced the same issue - I have spent a frustrating few hours on the telephone to Apple...After several attempts at troubleshooting, I was eventually passed on to a senior manager. He told me BT have blocked Apple I cloud. His advice is to call BT and ask to "Unblock I Cloud" to enable Apple to fix the problem... Will keep you posted on my progress.
Thanks Molly11. I spent a good 40mins in a chat with an Apple advisor. In the end I had to book a call with an iCloud tech for Friday. So my situation remains unresolved. The weird thing is that it does occasionally come back. Eg I got an email into my iCloud inbox timed at 4am while it was still connected to wi-fi. Does not make sense
.... and there it is. Currently it’s working again! No rhyme or reason. Nothing reset. Just came back. Bizarre
I am having the exact same issue. I even set up a Help call with Apple, during that we eventually noticed that the fault lay with the connection to iCloud was being blocked. I can't share anything, I can't even sign out of iCloud on any of my Apple devices.
It is just unbelievable that BT should allow an issue with a resource so huge and popular as iCloud to occur, and 100% shocking that they aren't resolving this immediately.
Unbelievable and shocking, but not surprising...
Can you please point to any proof (not hearsay) that this is a BT problem and not an Apple problem. Why on earth would BT block iCloud?
