I've tried searching, and maybe I'm using the wrong terms, but I'm not really finding my issue. I apologize if it's already been answered. Anyhoo, this is the issue I'm running into. I had a set of contacts I wanted to import to iCloud, so I enabled iCloud contacts from Address Book on my MBP running 10.7.2. I set the preferences in Address Book to be Default Account: iCloud. When I did the import, it appeared to go fine, and I verified that the entire group was in Address Book (just for clarity, it was 134 vCards). I waited a few minutes, then I went to check iCloud, and not all of the contacts were there (83 out of the 134 were on iCloud. Thinking it was a time issue, I've let it sit for a few days, and it's still sitting at the same amount. Thinking that maybe it's a sync issue between my computer and iCloud, I enabled iCloud contacts on my iPhone 4S, and I only got 120 contacts. Better, but not perfect. I've gone ahead and deleted one of the contacts that didn't appear to sync across from my laptop and re-added it manually, but it never showed up on iCloud. I get the same result if I try to re-import just that vCard. However, if I re-create the contact on iCloud, it does show up on my Mac. If I turn off iCloud sync from my Mac, I no longer see any contacts in my local Address Book. I still see 84 contacts in iCloud. When I turn on iCloud Contacts sync again, though, I see all 134 originally imported contacts on my Mac. I'm confused. Any ideas about how I can purge all my contacts completely? Or is there something less drastic that I can do? Am I missing a previous thread where this was resolved?
