    Hi. I have an droid x phone, and recently bought a iPad that I would like to sync to my phone. I would like to transfer all my contacts from droid to iPad. How can I do it? Thank you

    You can use the More > Export option on the Google Contacts site to quickly export a file that can then be imported into iCloud, though new contacts won't sync thereafter. I do believe you can set up direct Google Contacts syncing by using CardDAV.

    iOS Device:

    1. Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars
    2. Add Account > Add CardDAV Account
    3. Fill in the fields as follows:
      Server: google.com
      User Name: email address of the source Google account
      Password: password of the source Google account
      Description: as you see fit...

    How can I make sure contacts are synced to my Google account?

    The really easy method I find is to have a Google Account where you can keep contacts, calendar, email and on the iPad you can use Google Calendar (especially if you share calendars) and you can sync contacts, email etc. or add Inbox or Gmail apps (which are far better than the native iOS email).
