    First, go to icloud.com on a computer and make sure your contacts are correct there.

    Try turning you Contact syncing off, then on again for each device or computer that is not syncing properly. When it prompts you if you want to delete them on that device, say yes (or you may get duplicates when it syncs again.

    I followed your advice and all the contacts are in the cloud from both my iPhone and iPad. But still no joy syncing with iTunes. I even went on the apple site and followed their instructions to the tee, but again no luck. It must surely be as simple as an incorrect setting or two??
    When I open my contacts on my iPhone and open Groups I have the following:
    - All Contacts; On My IPhone , ( All on My iPhone); iCloud,( All iCloud).
    When I open my contacts on my iPad and open groups I have the following:
    -All Contacts; From my PC, ( All from my PC); iCloud , All iCloud.

    Is this correct?

    Why are you using iTunes to sync? Not a good idea if you can avoid it. Turn it off and use the iCloud control panel to sync the PC to iCloud.

    The iTunes settings is found in the Info tab when your device is connected and selected in iTunes.

    I have done as you have said. The contacts on both the iPad and iPhone are identical, but the laptop is still different as it is not syncing with iCloud.

    Where is the iCloud control angel so I can adjust as you say?

    Thanks for this, but alas I'm only running Windows XP with MS Office 2007, so I guess I'll just have to do without in the meantime.
    I will just have to remember every time that I attach a new contact, I will have to send it by email using vCard as my emails go to all my devices. This I find very handy.

    Well thank you for your time on this matter and I'll bid you farewell until another issue crops up.

    Sorry. I should have mentioned that it would not work with XP.

    You could probably sync your contacts through Google instead, but you'll lose the groups if you do.

    So, how important is having iCloud on your computer? I am running Windows XP and have found that I can not down load iCloud without a lot of grief. I've viewed several video "how to's" on installing and tweaking iCloud settings to work on XP. But to tell you the truth it is a little daunting for me to do this. I'm not transferring pictures or videos. I can use drop box or Evernote for transferring information files. I see where people transfer contacts, but I don't even use outlook, so am I missing something? Should I study up and do the patchy download of iCloud or give it up?
    All thoughts and advice welcome

    If you don't see any iCloud features that you need/want to work with your computer, then it is no big deal. While there are some bells and whistles that are difficult to get without iCloud, there is nothing necessary that can't be done by some other means (and sometimes even better).
