    Hi - I just bought my first iPod. I used iTunes to add my google contacts to it. Then I disabled "sync" with iTunes. I have also configured the iPod to sync with iCloud (I think). Under iCloud I see "contacts" is set to "on". Under "mail, Contacts, Calendar" I see that iCloud is set, Fetch New data is set to Push. I would have thought after 1 day, my contacts would be on the iCloud and then on my new iPad, contacts would automagically show up. But no luck. When I go back on my iPod and go under the app "Contacts" I see 3 groups: "All contacts", "All on my iPod touch", and "All iCloud". Nothing shows up under iCloud. I guess maybe I'm confused about iCloud. I thought everything would show up there and I could access that data from any of my i-devices. What am I missing?

    Yes. The iCloud login is the same as my iTunes; all devices are utilizing the same iTunes account name.
