Ok, so I recently upgraded to OSX Mountain Lion from Lion on my Mac Book Pro (Mid 2010) and after doing so I have run into a few issues.  The most pressing issue has been that all of my contacts previously visible through the Contacts app and stored on iCloud (still visible/accessible through other devices and the iCloud web portal).  In all my attempts to re-sync my contacts, to include signing out of iCloud through preferances as well as unchecking and rechecking the contacts portion within the iCloud settings have failed to resolve the issue.  I have found one solution that allows me to see my contacts on iCloud, however other programs such as mail are adversely affected, and that is to change the preferences within Contacts to reflect the default being "On My Computer" instead of "iCloud".  As stated above, this allows me to view them through contacts, however, apps such as mail are not able to pull my contacts located on "iCloud" as they used to.


Anyone else experiencing similar problems or know of any other possible solutions to the problem?
