    Hi all

    Can anyone help me with a quick question on contacts and iCloud? So I have ios 5 on my iPad and obviously on my iPhone 4s. iCloud is set up and contacts switched to on in settings on both devices.

    If I edit contacts on the iPad will it up date the iPhones contacts? If so how long does it take to sync? Both are connected to same wifi network.

    Thanks

    Josh

    I don't have an iPad (would be nice) but why don't you test it out yourself and let us know?

    Haven't tried from iPad to iPhone, but I put something in my Calendar on my iMac (syncing with iCloud) and it showed up on my phone within about 10 seconds.

    Hi. I have hence my post. I altered 5 contacts on my iPad but they didn't update on the iPhone. Surely iCloud does this?

    Non of my macs are running lion so don't have iCloud.

    I switched off iCloud contacts on my phone then back on and now i have double entries for most contacts. Any help appreciated
