    I would like to link my new iPad to my iPhone - when I set up the iPad I choose the option to set up the iPad as a new device rather than as a copy of my iPhone and now I'd like to link the two so that my emails, contacts, calendar etc are connected to both; can anyone tell me if this is possible?

    Just use the same email address for both and it should sync

    What are you using to sync your contracts on the iPhone? If you are not currently syncing them with anything, then you'll have to do that before syncing them with the iPad.

    Google is the most popular option at the moment, though iOS 5 and iCloud may soon change that.

    Here is how to setup Google as Exchange on your iPhone and iPad. Do the phone first and make sure to merge the contacts when prompted (not delete). Then set up the iPad, but only after visiting the Google site on the web and making sure your contacts have been synced.

    Setting up Google Sync with your iOS device : Mail, Calendar, & Contacts - Google Mobile Help
