    Set up your existing iCloud account using your new phone in Settings>iCloud, then turn Contacts (and any other data you want to sync with your iCloud account) to On.  If prompted, choose Merge.   If this doesn't download the contacts to your phone, go to icloud.com on your computer, log into your iCloud account and check Contacts to be sure they are there.

    My contacts are there but nothing else is.  What about my messages, calls, and emails?

    Your other data (such as messages, your call history, etc.) and settings are stored in your backup, with the exception of email, which is stored on the email provider's server.  Restoring your backup would transfer your other data and settings.


    Are you trying to transfer your data from an old iPhone to a new one?

    I'm trying to pull from my icloud account to my new phone. I'm on the wifi and have tried to back up. The contacts all show on my iPad and the pics have moved. Just not the contacts?
