    Did you check in Settings to see if push was checked for iCloud? Sometimes an update can change Settings.

    It is... and I hated turning off iCloud. I did and I had to set up a lot again including Apple Pay. It worked for a few minutes. Then quit pushing again.

    I haven't checked mine. I don't use my iCloud account much at all. I don't give it out. But I'll email myself and see.

    I just did 9.2 ( took about a half hour -seemed slow but maybe it's the 'watched pot' factor) All is well and I did send an email to my iCloud address which pushed right away ( send to receive and alert was about 5 seconds)
    Hope this helps....

    I got the iCloud alert sound about 3 seconds after sending it.

    Anecdotal accounts suggest that iOS 9.2 may be snappier than previous 9.x releases on some iPhones. Your own results may vary.

    Test FaceTime in between each of these troubleshooting steps.

    1. Toggle on Airplane mode then toggle it off.
    2. Do a hard reset (press the home and power buttons at the same time until you see the Apple logo).
    3. Reactivate FaceTime. Settings > FaceTime > Toggle Off > Toggle On > wait for it to activate > tap on your Apple ID in the FaceTime settings > Log out > Log in.
    4. Reset All Settings in the settings app.

    Thanks....It turned out to be just logging out and back in of iCloud. I did that on one of my phones and it fixed both phones and my computer, all of which weren't working. All the same iCloud. Never had this happen with an upgrade before, but I have had other settings change.
