I have *never* posted on a forum, so please excuse any missteps. I got my SP3 a few months ago and would like to use it exclusively, giving up my ipad. The issues are my calendar and contacts on the iPad. The Microsoft guy told me that the only way I could move my data from my ipad (icloud) calendar was to manually type the entries back in. Has anyone found an easier workaround to that? Also, I was also told that they only way to get my contacts from my ipad to the SP3 was to send them one at a time via email. Again, any other suggestions? Lastly, right now, my iPhone and ipad calendars are synced automatically via the cloud. Could I accomplish the same thing by using a gmail calendar and sync my iPhone to my sp3? Many thanks for any suggestions you may have!
