    Why are many of my contact listings repeated so that I have doubles? What is an easy way to fix this?

    I suspect it happened when you synced your contacts. I suggest look where you you are syncing from some times it is a double sync. I suggest go back to basics it may mean clearing the contacts on the iPad then resync from original source. iCloud can be turned off if you choose. Hope that helps

    How do I clear all contacts? If I do that and then resync with my Mac address book and later on add more contacts to my Mac how do I get those new contacts into my iPad contacts without doubling every thing up again? Also how does iCloud interface with this whole process?

    There is an awesome app in the Mac app store for this issue. It's called contact cleaner. Check it out.
