I don't really understand your question. What is disappearing from your iphone contacts ?

Sorry my English, I use the google translator. It happens that sometimes I look for a contact in my phonebook and it just disappeared. I use synchronization with icloud. I don't know what may be occurring. Thank you for your attention.

I have contacts on my iphone, iPad, and macbook. with the latest OS, and sharing all these on the cloud, I'm seeing contacts on my iPhone disappear. i enter them, and a few days later go to use a contact and it's gone, on it's own.
I don't think the explanation of which system is "in charge" or the "master listing" is very good, in fact i can't find a good explanation about which device has contact "control".
if I enter on the iphone, it should appear on the macbook and ipad, right ?
My guess is that if it doesn't appear within a short time, that when some other device that does NOT have the contact tries to work with a device that has the contact, that because it doesn't exist on one of the devices, that it gets deleted from ALL the devices, to avoid duplicate contacts.
i'm not really impressed with the "sync contacts" across the cloud, it is just too flakey, especially with so little explanation of how it is supposed to work.
Maybe someone has a found a good explanation of the sync process when two or three i-devices are sharing contacts. What is the procedure for adding and deleting contacts and can one system just delete a contact from another system on it's own ?

I just got back from the Verizon store and the guy went to my settings and under each email, unsynced my contacts. I lost all my contacts, and it's a good thing I had a typed up a back up file on my computer before going but to my joy- IT WORKED! It's been a week and all my contacts haven't moved and have stayed. It's like a regular phone (contact wise).
