How do I sync Contacts between iPad and iPhone?

Hi all,

Had iPad first, with lots of contact info stored in the Contact app that came with the device. Just got my first iPhone and would now like to share/sync the contacts in my Ipad with my iPhone.

Couldn't find the controls / options in iTunes to get that done.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I'd suggest syncing the contacts to google or mobile.me, but mobile.me i believe is not longer possible to sign up for until its the full icould version in the fall.

I prefer the google method myself just because i went from an iphone to a droid and back to an iphone without doing anything but plugging the account in the phone or ipad. PLus they will sync over the air so changes are instantly updated.

I used MobileMe. It worked perfectly.

Ditto with google. Another alternative that i use for backup is iDrive. You sign up online and then download the app to your phone/ipad. Backup the contacts and then you can sync it to whatever idevice you want with that app. And of course its free, cuase im a cheap sob. I use it as a fail safe incase something goes fubar with google.
