    Hi Guys,

    Got a query regarding how to sync all your contacts. Basically how can you get address book to sync with your contacts in iCloud? In my iCloud and on my iPhone, iPad I have a different number of contacts compared what those in my address book on my iMac

    Cheers

    On a first sync, iCloud should merge your contacts from both sources, so each time you switch a new device to sync contacts with iCloud, all data will merge and update in all devices.
    That's the theory!

    For safety, I backed up my Mac address Book before I switched it on though ;)

    Thanks for your help. Is there anyway to re-sync my iCloud account with my address book?

    You can un-tick the Contact sync option in iCould settings, backup your Address Book and then re-tick it?
    But it should be synching constantly anyway
