i plugged my phone into my computer to back up contacts, and itunes opened, and synching began,
however when I went to my device on itune, it said the phone was backing up to icloud.
how do i find my contacts on icloud, and confirm that they have been saved?
If you synced your contacts with iCloud you'll find them by going to icloud.com on your computer and signing into your iCloud account. (They aren't included in the iCloud backup.)
