iCloud contacts not synching across Macs!
yeah, I know, you like to spell it "syncing," but it's supposed to be "synching. " So nyaaaaa!


I've never had trouble having my iCloud contacts sync from my iMac to my MacBook (details near my avatar) and vice versa, but lately suddenly any new contacts I add via my iMac don't get synched to my MacBook. Never have problems going the other way around, and they all sync to my iPhone with zero problem.

I've verified that my account information is entered correctly. I'm using the latest version of Lion on both.

What I have noticed, though, is if I open my contacts on my MacBook, the little busy icon thingy keeps spinning (not the beach ball) and never stops...picture below.

What all should I be looking out for???

Export all contacts in the Addressbook App as a VCard.
Then make sure you got another backup, delete all contacts in the addressbook app.
Now drop the Vcard export (not the addressbook archive, it doesn't work) onto the iCloud group in your addressbook windows on the left.

That should do it... I think ;)
