Thanks to the help I got here, my iOS 9 contacts are synced with my GMail account pretty well - the sync works, but is not immediate.

I would like to sync my contacts to iCloud as well, in order to be able to call a contact from FaceTime on my Macbook Pro with El Capitan 10.11.1.

I have enabled contact sync under iCloud on my device:

However, only 44 contacts are synced. There seems to be nothing special about them - some are old, some are new, and they were all synced from GMail.

Any idea how to sync these contacts to iCloud?

  • can you see your entire contact list on icloud.com -> contacts. – enzo Oct 26 '15 at 15:17
  • @maetsoh Done that, I see only 44 contacts out of the hundreds I have in my phone. – Adam Matan Oct 26 '15 at 15:17
  • Have you tried deleting your iCloud account (from settings -> mail,contacts,calendar), restarting the phone and adding the iCloud again. This will force the data that is not already synced to sync. – enzo Oct 26 '15 at 15:23
  • @maetsoh Do you mean settings - iCloud, and unchecking / checking contacts, mail etc? Will that delete the iCloud account? – Adam Matan Oct 26 '15 at 15:30
  • No, you should have a copy of your iCloud account in Settings - > Mail, Contacts, Calendar. This is the account you'll have to delete (delete button in the bottom of the screen) – enzo Oct 26 '15 at 15:33
