I helped a friend sync his new ipad with iPhone contacts using the cloud method.
Unfortunately, although he got all of his contacts on iPad, as he wished, he ALSO got all of his wife's contacts! Each has their OWN apple ID and each is cloud syncing in this manner. Any idea how it occurred, and is there any way to RECTIFY IT?
Between them, they each own an iPad and an iPhone.
Sorry if I wasn't clear. He DOES want contacts from his iPhone to ALSO exist on iPad. What he doesn't want is the contacts on his wifes devices to ALSO reside there. As I said before each has his own SEPARATE apple ID, so we are unclear about why this is occurring.
Should we have her turn off cloud syncing of HER contacts, temporarily, while his two devices sync contacts via iCloud?
first of all
we met on this forum around 13 hours ago in an iPad discussion (you seem to fight with everyone)
i have the perfect solution
1. sync the contacts of the iPhone to iTunes (the option will be disabled and has to be enabled this option is found under the info tab)
2. let the contacts sync to ur pc/mac
3. now connect the iPad enable the sync contacts option (for ipad) in the info tab.
this will sync all ur iPhone contacts to iPad and NOT the other way round (for this to happen after the sync disable the sync contacts option)
sign in through iCloud on both iPad and iPhone then enable sync contacts on both the devices!
