Hi guys,

I have an iMac, a Macbook Pro and an iPhone 3G. I normally enter my new contacts in either of the 2 non-iPhone machines..


But these new contacts don't seem to make it to the other 2 devices. I had originally set it all up at the Apple store but Contacts does not seem to followthrough.


All my devices are on the latest OS available. Any thoughts?


Thanks a lot,



iMac 21.5", Mac OS X (10.7.2), Pages for iPhone/iPad

    Contacts must be in the "iCloud" section of the contact list, not the "On my <fill-in-the-blank>" section.


    Settings>icloud - be sure you are signed in to the one account you want to use and be sure Contacts is turned on.
