Can you tell us a bit more about the computer and iPhone/iPad? For example, are you running iOS 7 on the iDevices, and is the computer a Mac or a Windows machine - and also, which OS are you running? Are you using iCloud to sync, or iTunes?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Trying to sync with both but can't get my I mac contacts to sync at all now but it use to sync from my computer my contact information as soon as it was typed on the computer to where ever I was at the time onto my phone and my I pad. Some setting must have been changed and can't do now.

Are you using iCloud to sync things? If so, check that "contacts" is set to sync on each of the devices AND the Mac in the iCloud preferences.

On your iMac that would be in System Preferences - iCloud


(and just as an FYI: it is iMac, iPhone, iPad... not I Mac, I Phone, I Pad - makes it hard if not impossible for others that may be searching for a fix to the same or similar issue)

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
