    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.




    Ok just gone back into the iPhone and now I have double entries for my contacts:mad:

    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
