Hi, I use google for gmail, contacts and calendar. I have these accounts syncing with Mail, iCal and Address Book on my Mac, iPad, iPod etc. It's been working great. I use iCloud for Mail (.me account, not gmail obviously), bookmarks (to get to iPad), Photo stream, Documents and Find my Mac. I have Contacts and Cal turned off as far as iCloud goes. I use an Android phone, and not an iPhone. Don't want to switch. I like my Android phone. I do use an iPad but sync with google . . . Somehow, Cal and contacts got turned on. Don't know how, may an update. I noticed because I updated a Address Book entry on my Mac, and it did not propagate to gmail contacts. So I turned iCloud Contacts and Cal off. Re-setup my google account with the Address Book again. All working now that way I want it to. So now I had these contacts "stranded" in iCloud not syncing any anything. I wonder if I should delete them in case sometime in the future I want to turn it on again? Or leave them? What's the best thing to do?
