    Does anyone else have any issues with the contacts syncing correctly?

    I have 336 on my iMac, 190 on iCloud.com and both my iPad and iPhone report 260!

    I've tried restarting the iMac, also disabling and then enabling the contacts part on all devices but nothing seems to be make any difference.

    I even had one contact that I added a note to so that it forced an sync and that did not work. I then did another and it magically synced.

    I'm trying to work out if this is a real issue or just that the iCloud servers are swamped with demand and there's strange things happening.

    Same Problem Here

    Having the same issue. It's strange how the sync will work sometimes and not others. I have an iPad, iPod Touch and a MacMini, all updated to OS5. When I make a Address Book/Contacts change on the iPad or iPod Touch, the sync is pretty much instantaneous between those two. The MacMini? It can be 30 minutes or longer without updating. Very frustrating.
