    I just my iPad a week ago and am really enjoying it. The one problem that I'm having is getting all of my contacts to migrate. I have a google account set on the ipad, but cannot seem to find my contacts that are on my Droid Bionic. IS there a way to migrate them from my phone to my iPad?
    Thanks, GregoryV

    Hi Gregory--do you have your contacts on your gmail account also along with your droid?

    If you have your contacts on gmail--check your settings - mail, contacts, calendar - turn on contacts.

    I do have my contacts set up on my Droid Gmail, but none on my iPad. On my iPad I have my gmail account set up but did not add any contacts to this account. I'm not even sure if this is possible, but will ke trying. And yes my iPad settings contacts is enabled.
    Thanks, GregoryV
