    Howdy. I am using "Windows" contacts for all my iOS devices rather than "Outlook" contacts. If I add contacts to my iCloud, how do I specify which contacts to sync to my iCloud? Thanks.

    I could be wrong, but I think iCloud only syncs contacts with Outlook.

    I'm pretty sure that's the case which really bothers me as I don't use outlook but I'd love to use iCloud more.

    I thought I read that you cannot sync contacts, calendar and reminders if you sync to an exchange server. I got an error message that stated the same when I tried.

    While what you say maybe true, outlook can be used without an exchange server.

    I'm sorry, I mistakenly read exchange and you did type outlook. I have outlook running from our Exchange server. Sorry to cloud the issue.

    Clouding the issue is exactly what the OP was hoping for, i think.

    I'd settle for sometimes. But as I get older...
