    Hi ive read macrumors for a while but just finally got an account because i cant seem to find this answer in any google search.

    I want my contacts to be synced with iCloud (I'm running the beta on my iPhone 4) instead of my exchange account (google). The problem is that the contacts arent actually on my phone instead theyre on the google server or something and when I turn off the contacts switch for exchange settings it doesnt give an option to keep the contacts on the iPhone so I either need to delete all my contacts or not have them upload to iCloud. How to I make my exchange contacts go onto my physical iPhone so i can sync with iCloud.

    Thanks a lot

    if you go into the mail,contacts,calendar settings pane and delete the google account, it will prompt you to choose to either keep the contacts on the phone or remove them. choose to keep them on the phone, then set up iCloud and have it take the contacts from the phone. Then you can re-add the google account and just choose to not sync contacts from google

    I tried that but it never gave me the option and just deleted all my contacts anyway:confused:
