Got my new iPad 4 for Christmas and I'm not a tech guy. Tried to sync my contacts and photos from my notebook but no luck. Used the Apple site for instructions and opened an itunes acct. as required. Went to see my local pro and he asked what service I had on my notebook, which is Comcast. He said that is normally a tricky service to deal with, but he manged to get my contacts and photos over. Actually appeared he used email for the contacts, if that matters.
Anyhow, I opened and now use a gmail email address as my apple ID and primary email address instead of my Comcast one. Should this help me sync my contacts easier now myself, or is the fact that I have Comcast "at the other" end still going to be a problem? Want to find out in advance so I don't screw up what he already did. If there is something else I may be missing too, please let me know.
