I'll have to give this a try when I get home from work tonight and see if it works on a PC.As I recall it's something that's not on by default. Look in the Sync -> Info tab of your iPhone first, make sure contacts are syncing there, then repeat the process with your iPad. I did this successfully, I had only been building my contacts in iPhone, nowhere else, and migrated them to my iPad this way. (That said, I was on OSX, maybe the OSX "Address Book" is part of the equation.)
(I *think* it's the Info tab. Don't have iTunes in front of me. The first tab I believe.)
I need a walk thru on how to do this please!!I am on a PC and am trying to get my contacts from my iphone to my ipad. The contacts are solely on my iPhone. I have read through these suggestions and am not quite sure that any of them will work. I don't think my contacts from my iphone are synced to my itunes. And I can't really see how that is possible based on looking at the info tab on itunes. It only shows contacts for Outlook, Yahoo, Google & Windows. Help!
100% agree--I don't use Windows contacts for anything other than syncing my iPhone/iPad contacts. Works like a dream.I just got tech to help me. You need to connect your iphone to your PC than open itunes. Go to the info tab and check Sync contacts with. In the drop down box choose Windows address book and than hit apply bottom right on your screen. Then sync. Next attach your ipad and have the same boxes checked apply and sync. That's it.
