    I have an iphone 3GS and running ios 5.1 and I just noticed that under contacts, in "All contacts", i have 696 contacts, but under the group "All iCloud", I have 635 contacts. Now I am worried not all my contacts are backed up.

    How do i make all my contacts get backed up into iCloud?

    P.S. when i try to comepare some recent contacts added ( thinking maybe it stopped backing up at some point) , but i cant really find a contact that it doesnt have in icloud, but the numbers are so different. maybe it didnt backup duplicates? (i dunno if i had any) I am just confused because of the numbers

    If I were you, I'd compare your contacts on or (Contacts on a Mac) to the ones on your iPhone and re-add the ones you're missing.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I noticed that too.
    I try to backup my contacts to icloud and not all copied over.
    There were over 30+ missing.

    It sounds like you have some contacts still in the "On my Mac" section of Contacts and not all of them are in the iCloud section. Open the OS X Contacts app and look in the sidebar under On my Mac and drag those all into the iCloud section.
