    Hello Everyone,

    I had a quick question regarding my contacts on my iPhone and iCloud. I have been UNABLE to get my contacts on my iPhone to sync to iCloud. I know I have enabled iCloud on my iPhone as I have added contacts to the iCloud section (All iCloud) and they show up on iCloud.com, HOWEVER, I am trying to get contacts from my work / personal emails (aka All Contacts) to show up in iCloud and it is not working unfortunately.

    I tried googling and seeing if I could anything to force the push of "all contacts" from iPhone to iCloud, but I didn't really find anything concrete. If anyone can offer any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks,

    --Asif

    I'm assuming, when u said work and personal email, they came from respective clouds/exchange? Then no, it's not possible. You would have to manually export and import them into iCloud, if u want.

    How many? If they're not synced somewhere else (Exchange, Google etc.), and they're on your iPhone only, then I'm thinking you'll have to "share" each one individually...by emailing the vcf file to yourself.

    Use this free app to export the non-iCloud contacts to a VCF file, then import the VCF into iCloud.
