    Curious with all these posts about people losing contacts and not getting them back with a restore, do you all use icloud or google as your source to save contacts and why? is there a way to do both?

    Mine's synced with Google. Only because that's how it did it since my original iPhone and I'm too lazy (and don't see the need/benefit) to switch to iCloud.

    I did switch to iCloud for calendars though since syncing works easier and better with iCal on my MBP through iCloud.

    iCloud! Because any changes I make on either phone or laptop, it all syncs together. Love it.

    why were some people saying that iOS 7 wiped the phone and upon doing restore contacts were not there, why would that be?

    only odd thing for me is my pdf's from ibooks keeps disappearing whenever i try to save a new one

    iCloud with occasional backups to Google as well as manual Address Book exports on my Mac, backed up with Time Machine, Backblaze, and Dropbox. I guess I take backups seriously. ;)

    not saying googles offer is bad but the apple ecosystem fits my needs well enough.

    I'm moving everything to icloud, including my email address. Was a committed gmail user but with Push gone from the native mail app I think it's time to jump ship.

    iCloud because of the integration across iDevices and Macs

    Google

    Used to be MobileMe until they nixed custom domain support when they downgraded me to iCloud.

    I switched to iCloud (from Google) a while ago.

    Haven't had any issues.

    I've slowly been moving away from all Google services. I just don't trust them anymore with my information.

    I wouldn't count on it. They will likely use it as a selling tool for their native app.

    What I would like in iOS is a way to move contacts, whole calendars, notes across systems. I know that Exchange has security blocks so okay not that one but why can't I move all my old yahoo syncing contacts to my iCloud etc
