    restore your iPad2 to empty first

    I did restore my iPad2 from my iPhone backup and was able to get iCal, Address Book ....... everything.

    It was my first plug-in for iPad2. So, I think you can do it when your iPad is empty with totally nothing with it.

    You can restore a backup on a device anytime, just right click on the device in iTunes and choose "restore from backup".

    In your case, I think the backup was not created or restored properly, just backup again your iPhone (and delete the previous backup) and restore again.

    at info page while you sync your iPhone with iTune(where the iTune is stored in a MacBook), you may select to update from your iPhone info to Mac.

    Or, you may choice to sync from mobileme.com, then restore sync info from mobileme to over-write your Mac.
