    Hi I've got an iPad and an iPhone 4. I was wondering if there was an easy and free way to sync my contacts between my iPhone and iPad? I have tried Yahoo's CardDAV service but it doesn't seem to send my current iPhone contacts to the Yahoo server. If there is an easier way to do this or if anyone knows how to get Yahoo CardDAV working that would be much appreciated,

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I use MobileMe which works great if you can spare the cash. If not a friend uses Google and Vodafone Contact Sync which is just as good

    +1 for Google. No reason to use anything else for your contacts (or calendar).

    +2 for Google. It works flawlessly. I can make changes on the Google account, and it syncs to my Hackintosh and iPhone, and vice-versa.

    Mobile Me is almost identical. Costs 99 bucks a year though.

    ok, So if I add a contact or appointment on any device (ipad,iphoneoutlook pc) all will stay in sync correct?

    can you sync multiple calendars?

    Google/Gmail for sure. All you have to do is get them there once and from then on getting them from Google to Device X/Y/Z is painless.

    OK I think im getting there!!! DO you need a Google apps account to sync cal and contacts? I do not have one, and the sync widget on the PC only seems to sync the calendar.

    Mobile me! Syncs contact, calenders, bookmarks on iPhone, iPad, pc and mac. Also gives you cloud iDisk space, a me.com email address, and cloud storage for pictures. I love it.
