    My wife has her iCloud account set with contacts on. The contacts and all the changes work fine between the iMac, MacBook Air and iPad. For some reason, the contacts and changes don't show up on her iPhone. She has the same iCloud user name for the phone and the contacts is turned on. Any suggestions?

    Happens at times for me too. If I make changes on my mac I usually go to my iPhone, open the Contacts app, click the Groups icon upper left, then click the round arrow to update with iCloud. Sometimes it pushes and sometimes it does not.

    Mine actually just deleted ALL my contacts today!! I don't know what to do... I'm afraid if I go to the Apple store they'll just tell me I won't have any hope. I don't have them backed up in my Address Book either. I was talking with someone fine for two minutes before I ended the call w/ the other person and I checked that all my contacts were deleted from my phone book! I checked iCloud and nothing is on there! I am so pissed. Help!?

    Ya. Hitting that circle (sync) symbol seems to be necessary to update the contacts list on the iPhone.
