    Hi, I have my contacts selected on in settings, iCloud on my iPad. I would like to view them on my iPhone but not mix them with my iPhones contacts. If I select the contacts in settings, iCloud to on on my iPhone, will they converge with my iPad or give me the choice of which ones to view? Thanks.

    Well that stinks. The devices show other iCloud connected devices it seems we should be able to view each of them without mixing them.

    Why not create contact groups - one with your iPhone contacts and one with your iPad contacts within your iCloud account by logging in via a web browser? This way you can keep the two sets of contacts separate.

    I guess I don't know how I would do that. I did log in and don't see a reasonable way to do so without having to copy and paste each part of every contact to a new group. Can you shed any light on doing that?

    Hm, unless I am misunderstanding your question, you can easily add contacts to groups by logging in to your iCloud account, clicking on the red band (see screenshot), creating a new group and just dragging and dropping contacts from the "All Contacts" section to that group.

    Yes that worked. The first try I used my iPad with a desktop like browser but their are still a couple thing it won't allow me to do like drag and drop. So far it worked with moving all my iPad contacts over to a a new group but continues to rename that group "null". When I turn on iCloud for my iPhone I'm sure it'll merge them with the rest of "all on iCloud" and I'll have to pick through them one by one. At least their wont be as many. Thanks for your response.

    I've had my contacts separated for a while now like I wanted. Only thing I can't figure out is that in iCloud where I create and name them, iCloud renames my iPads contacts "null". Any ideas?
