Why my backup of contacts to Icloud even with Contacts will not be activated in Icloud settings on my Iphone?

I have Contacts is activated in my settings on my Iphone 6s icloud, but they are not backup on Icloud. My calendar and reminders appear to back up fine but my Contacts and notes do not backuo.  Am I missing a required parameter in Icloud for include Contacts and Notes in the Backup car?


Contacts are not saved, but rather synchronized with icloud. In order to be synchronized, they would need to be at the very least not synchronized with something else.

For example with Google or Yahoo. Usually, if you have multiple contacts sources when you open contacts app you would see 'groups '. When you click on groups, you would see groups of the source, example - I see icloud, gmail, yahoo and facebook. Only icloud group would be synchronized with icloud.

    9.3.5 IOS is still safe?

    Please answer ins a few hours of

    iPads that will stay on iOS 9.3.5 will still run and be fine and app developers will publish app updates should still be compatible with iOS 9 for, probably, a year, or almost.

    Maybe a little of everything and more.

    Even in this case, regardless of apps that is updated will still continue to work.

  • the names of my contacts will not appear in Imessage on my mac? It is only numbers. Some contact names appear but not much

    in my imessage that I can type peoples contact names and they will come to the top, but then it changes automatically to their number. contacts will be displayed, but not much.


    Check the iPhone and Mac use the same service then synchronize Contacts.

    On Mac, including limiting to one account/service.

    There may be problems if the Mac uses iCloud, Google and Yahoo and others all at the same time.

    Most likely this isn't because of two devices sync contact lists.

  • iCloud contacts will not sync on macOS Sierra

    The contact.app on my mac does not download the new contacts I added to iClound via iPhone. I'm sure that the contacts are added successfully I checked on iCloud.com.

    I also check and unchecked "enable this account" (account iClould) in Contacts.app preference, but it does not work. The Fetch is set to "Automatic" or "Every minute", but none solved the problem.

    If you have already enabled Contacts switch under settings > iCloud, another option would be to sign out of your account iCloud on the device and reconnect.

  • Contacts will not sync via iCloud - once again!

    I get are leaning on the previous, mostly by now quite old, posts on this topic, but have not found answers that helped me.

    I have an iPhone 5s and a Mac mini with Mountain Lion (10.8.5). I have Contacts selected in iCloud on both devices, but the Contacts now does not synchronize anyway.

    I looked in iCloud.com. My contacts are there, but they are as they appear on my iPhone and they were on my Mac, a few days ago, not as they appear now on my Mac after some additions and changes.

    What can I do?

    On the iPhone, tap settings > iCloud > Contacts.

    Disable the Contacts then turn it back on.

    On Mac, open System Preferences > iCloud. Clear the Contacts check box, and then reselect it.

    Give a few minutes of re iCloud synchronize data.

  • Facebook contacts will not sync properly

    So I was wondering if someone else sees the same problem with the triumph. I have synced my Facebook contacts to see that I can't call one of them. Three digits are added before the number when you make a call ("001" the international dialing code for the United States) and for this reason, the call does not pass through. A similar problem occurs when trying to text message, these contacts as well. They appear as just the number rather than a name or the picture even if it lets you text the correct contact. It just does not display their right.

    Everyone knows about this problem? And how can we solve this problem? (Motorola, I'm looking at YOU). It's really annoying and I want it fixed.

    I think I found a work around for this problem.

    Settings > call settings > International prefix > remove 011 > arrow to the left (capacitive touch)

    Confirmed to work.

  • contacts will not open the e-mail program

    On my DroidX when I open a contact and select the e-mail address he opens my email software (k9 mail) so that I can send a message.

    On my Xoom when I try exactly the same the screen just turns gray and hangs until I got hit again.

    Does anyone have an idea what is happening here?

    could be the bug of screen refresh. Try turning 90 degrees when it fades and see if you get a popup.
