    I lost Some of my contacts on my contacts list, Connected my iPad to iTunes to re-sync it and those names are Still not showing up After syncing. Have the same contacts on my iPhone, Try turning off my iPad turning it back on reconnecting it & re-syncing, Nothing seems to help. All my contacts are on Google account, Guess the only thing I need to do is delete my contacts have to put him on a word document reenter them again then syncing, Unless someone has advice they can give me.
    Everyone's time and effort is greatly appreciated,

    Contacts disappear missing empty

    Currently travelling. Contacts were present this morning. Gone this afternoon. This happened once before, but could restore them syncing with Outlook. Cannot restore at the moment because away from PC. I do not use iCloud. The only change is am now using is a Telstra Elite wireless modem (and had to add a new outgoing mail server). Would love to know if anyone has this problem, or resolved it.... Thanks

    I started having the same problem at the beginning of 8/2013 with missing contacts, but I do use the iCloud for sycncing. Everything worked great for a month, and then at least 3 of my very ofter used contacts disappeared from my iPad, iPhone, iCloud, and my contact list in yahoo mail. I have a model 3 running ver. 6.1.3

    Contacts are not available to import from Gmail, but you can import your contacts from Yahoo mail.

    Here's the way to add your Google contacts to your iPad on your iPad:

    Go to Settings - Mails, Contacts, Calendars.
    Choose "Add Account..."
    Tap "Other"
    Now choose "Add CardDAV Account"

    Write your account information:
    Server: Enter "google.com"
    User Name: Write your Gmail address.
    Password: Gmail password.
    Description: write a description of the account (e.g. Contacts).

    Tap "Next" at the top of your screen.
    Make sure that the "Contacts" option is turned to ON.

    This way your Gmail contacts will sync to your iPad, you don't need iTunes.

    I notice that my Samsung S4 has imported all my Google contacts both MY CONTACTS and OTHER CONTACTS. The ipad on the other hand has only imported MY CONTACTS. Is it possible to get ipad to also import the other contacts?

    Set up Google contacts with CardDAV:

    Go to Settings - Mails, Contacts, Calendars - Add Account. There, select "Other". On the next page, choose "Add CardDAV account".
    As server, write: google . com
    Enter your email address and password, and in Description write something like "Google Contacts". Then tap "Next". Your information will be verified, and the account added afterwards.

    Thanks for you input and I agree you would think that would work but it doesn't as I had done that. I still get the 104 contacts in MY CONTACTS and no more. Looking at the Account URL under Google settings on the iPad I find it is the apple.com/carddav/v1/principals/my personal information.

    Perhaps the principals is limiting it but that is what it created. So I'm missing 300 other google OTHER CONTACTS.
