    I just got my first iphone. I transferred all my contacts (like ten thousand) to my new phone (ATT tech[​IMG] did it for me). Problem is they all came out delectated and mixed. I was told to go to the cloud on my PC and fix them. I did this and it was very easy.

    The problem:

    Everything I did on the cloud[​IMG] did in fact add to my contacts, but all the old clutter is still on the phone (just added more to the mess). I want my phone to mirror the cloud. How di I get the cloud contacts to sync and overwrite what is on my phone?

    Hello and welcome.

    -What brand/model phone did you have before the iPhone?
    -What cloud on your PC are they referencing?
