I just updated the contacts on my macbook but can't sync to cloud or iPhone

I just updated all of my contacts on my macbook from the main contact book not the Icloud contact book.  I now need to sync these both to Icloud and to my Iphone and don't seem to be able to. I have tried turning on and off the icloud contact option on my phone and turning it back on but that didn't work nor did just syncing everything.  Anyone have a suggestion? Also, when you sync contacts to your phone is it pulling the Icloud contacts or your other contact (gmail for exmaple)? 

On My Mac = Not On iCloud, as does Google or any other account except iCloud.

  • Just updated the software on iPad 2 but pages app is gone

    I updated my iPad2's software to iOS 5.0.1.  After doing this, the Pages app which I purchased several months ago was gone, along with the files/docs I have with it.  How can I have it back?

    The battery drain issue started when I updated my iphone 4 to the IOS 6.1.2.
    The battery will go from 100% to 0% in about 3 hours !!!
    I called Apple support and they told me that they are not aware of an issue affecting the battery with the latest update. They did a diagnostic test on my iphone and found that my battery is healthy. Then then recommended that I backup my iphone, restore the factory settings and recover after that. In other words, delete everything off my iphone and reinstall everything all over again. I waisted a couple of hours doing that and .....I still have the issue of the battery drain.
    I finally discovered the problem, and thus the solution!
    To solve this issue, do the following:
    Settings ---> Mail, Contacts, Calendars --->Fetch New Data ---> Advanced
    Now click on your hotmail account or your company email account (anything in that folder other than yahoo, gmail or aol),
    Change the setting from Push to Fetch !!!
    And Viola ! Problem will be solved !
    The problem seems to be that the mail exchange (i.e. microsoft, hotmail...etc) keeps checking and pushing emails from the exchange server every second (continiousely) and this is causing the battery to drain.When you change the setting to Fetch, then emails will start downloading every 15 min; but at least your battery will hold charge as it is supposed to do, until Apple comes up with 6.1.3 that hopefully will fix this issue.
    Good luck. Hope this works out for you folks hence it sure did work for me this morning and it sure feels great.
    Cheers !

  • Does the updated CC 2014 create a new softwares or just update the old ?

    Hi everyone,
    This question's for saving free space on my hard disk :
    - Does the updated CC 2014 create a new softwares or just update the old ?
    - In that event, can I uninstall the old version of CC ?
    THX !

    Hello,
    here a publication from outside of Adobe. (I fear they have some problems at the moment, I cant reach their wesites):
    http://www.zdnet.com/adobes-2014-creative-cloud-update-desktop-upgrades-new-mobile-apps-cr eative-hardware-7000030627/
    and a German article (I'm sure you can translate it).
    http://www.digitalproduction.com/de/film-video-vfx/details/artikel/adobe-cc-2014/
    What concerns "can I uninstall the old version of CC ?" yes you can, I for my part would keep it for a while, if your harddisk has enough space.

    Hi i just got a new 11' MBA but can't sync iCal with my iPhone 3GS.  Advice pls?

    Disconnect your devices then reboot your computer.
    Before connecting your devices again reboot your devices. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

  • I have just bought a MacBook but can't seem to sync my Contacts or Calendar from my iPhone 3GS to my iTunes, I have tried everything, even the icloud doesn't seem to do it.

    I have just bought a MacBook but can't seem to sync my Contacts or Calendar to the Address Book or iCal via iTunes, I have tried everything including watching support videos and putting this into a search engine. Even icloud doesn't seem to be doing it.

    If you are trying to sync via iCloud, make sure your MacBook is running OSX Lion 10.7.7, and that you have set up your iPhone as described here: http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/ and you MacBook as described here: http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/mac.htm (including turning On Contacts and Calendars as shown in step 3).  If you're syncing via iCloud don't check to sync in iTunes too (on the Info tab in iTunes) or you may end up with duplicate data.

  • I am in the process of updating the os of my macbook pro and have installed from the snow leopard dvd and did the 10.6.8 combo v1.1 as well and wis to update further but i now cannot get preview so i am concerned about going forward. how to get prev

    I am updating the OS on my MacBook Pro from 10.5.8.  I have installed 10.6.8 and the 10.6.8 combo v1.1.  I cannot open my older version of Preview and do not appear to have a newer version which i thought would be on the Snow Leopard dvd.  How can I get the correct version of Preview and is it advisable to upgrade to OS7 andOS8?

    It is always installed with whatever new version of OS X is installed or appropriate updates. Since you plan to go forward your choice depends on your model. I would urge you to perform a clean install instead of continuing the upgrade path which may interject incompatibilities.
    Upgrading to Yosemite
    You can upgrade to Yosemite from Lion or directly from Snow Leopard. Yosemite can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for FREE.
    Upgrading to Yosemite
    To upgrade to Yosemite you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or Lion installed. Download Yosemite from the App Store. Sign in using your Apple ID. Yosemite is free. The file is quite large, over 5 GBs, so allow some time to download. It would be preferable to use Ethernet because it is nearly four times faster than wireless.
        OS X Mavericks/Yosemite - System Requirements
          Macs that can be upgraded to OS X Yosemite
             1. iMac (Mid 2007 or newer) - Model Identifier 7,1 or later
             2. MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer) - Model Identifier 5,1 or later
             3. MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) - Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             4. MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer) - Model Identifier 2,1 or later
             5. Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer) - Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             6. Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer) - Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             7. Xserve (Early 2009) - Model Identifier 3,1 or later
    To find the model identifier open System Profiler in the Utilities folder. It's displayed in the panel on the right.
         Are my applications compatible?
             See App Compatibility Table - RoaringApps.
    Upgrading to Lion
    If your computer does not meet the requirements to install Yosemite, it may still meet the requirements to install Lion.
    You can purchase Lion at the Online Apple Store. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax.  It's a download. You will get an email containing a redemption code that you then use at the Mac App Store to download Lion. Save a copy of that installer to your Downloads folder because the installer deletes itself at the end of the installation.
         Lion System Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7,
               or Xeon processor
           2. 2GB of memory
           3. OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
           4. 7GB of available space
           5. Some features require an Apple ID; terms apply.
    Before attempting a clean install you want to first download the appropriate installer application from the App Store. It will download into your Applications folder. You need to make a copy of it in your Downloads folder so you can make a bootable USB flash drive:
    Make Your Own Mavericks, Mountain/Lion Installer
    After downloading the installer you must first save the Install Mac OS X application. After the installer downloads DO NOT click on the Install button. Go to your Applications folder and make a copy of the installer. Move the copy into your Downloads folder. Now you can click on the Install button. You must do this because the installer deletes itself automatically when it finishes installing.
       2. Get a USB flash drive that is at least 8 GBs. Prep this flash drive as follows:
    Open Disk Utility in your Utilities folder.
    After DU loads select your flash drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the leftside list. Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID then click on the OK button. Click on the Partition button and wait until the process has completed.
    Select the volume you just created (this is the sub-entry under the drive entry) from the left side list.
    Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
    Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window.
    Click on the Erase button. The format process can take up to an hour depending upon the flash drive size.
    Use DiskMaker X to put your installer clone onto the USB flash drive.
    Make your own Yosemite flash drive installer using the Yosemite tool:
    You can also create a Yosemite flash drive installer via the Terminal. Yosemite has its own built-in installer maker you use via the Terminal:

  • How can I download/update my contacts between my MacBook address and my iPhone 5?

    Hi,
    Can anyone help me on this problem?
    How can I download/update my contacts between my MacBook address and my iPhone 5? They don't sync with each other.  Thanks

    Welcome to Apple Discussions, Catwang!
    You can use iTunes to sync the two devices. See the KB article, iOS: How to transfer or sync content to your computer and iTunes for Mac: sync contacts, calendar and other info.
    If you want to use iCloud, your MacBook  needs to use at least OS 10.7.4 or later. See Set up iCloud on all your Devices.

    In that case... Install it on your New Mac using the Disc(s) and have all your Serial Numbers handy in case you are asked for them during the Install.
    After the successful install... run Software Update to get any and all Updates... Then Restart your Mac and you should be good to go.
    PS:
    Make sure your MBPr is connected to the Mains for this Long process...

  • While updating iOS 6 on my iPhone I lost the Contacts I already had, where can I recover them?

    Thanks in Advance,

    Thank you so much for the quick answer, but right now I just have my iPhone with me, I have the PC where I Sync at home, how can I do to proceed? I just get into the Tech Support of iCloud, but It is not clear to me....  Thanks.

  • I just updated to IOS 5 and now I can't add any contacts?

    So I have a iPhone 3GS, and I just updated the software to the new IOS5 using itunes, and i just got a new contact to add, but when i open contacts, there is no longer a button to add any contacts, I've seen that other also have this problem, and ideas? thank you in advance guys!

    Just go to "Settings" then "iCloud" and switch on "Contacts", wait until done and then switch off.
    Select "Keep in my iPhone" in the message that appears. It would be fixed.
    The same procedure (but with calendars switch) would enable the "+" button in calendars if it is missing.
