    Hello all,

    I added five names to my address book on my Air yesterday and only two made it to my other devices. I would really like to force another sync. Is it possible?

    Just wondering if there was any way to force a sync like there was with MobileMe?

    Thanks

    don't think you can force a sync anymore, the idea is that your main contacts are updated direct on the server

    Couple of things to try, if you haven't already

    Try turning WiFi Off/On this might get it to re sync with the cloud

    or

    Make a change to the contacts with issues (add dummy notes to them) and see if that forces them to move into the cloud

    That's a bummer really. Not being able to force something isn't the best if things won't always transfer.

    You've got a good idea though.

    Thanks!
