Re: Picked up an HTC One X today....adios iPhone 4S
I was using iCloud for email, calendar and address book. For email, I just got a new gmail address and am getting people to email me there. Also forwarding my mac email through iCloud to my new gmail address.

Contacts has been a bit of a pain. I did the same thing as calendars...synced to the gmail. But I had some contacts that were in "iCloud" and some that were on my mac. Also, some of the numbers didn't move over correctly. Most contact addresses now have city, state and zip showing twice in the gmail contact. The formatting between the two did not get along.
One thing I don't like about Android...it tries to tie all your accounts together. YouMail, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter...all want to tie in with my contacts but I don't want that. I guess it's nice for those that do but I end up having to go in and turn it all off.
Other than that, I'm dealing with it all and still happy with the move to Android thus far.
