Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Computer
Expert:  James replied 2 years ago.
Hi, can you tell me a bit more about what you are trying to do?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I want to close my Yahoo address book and move it to Icloud
Expert:  James replied 2 years ago.
Thank you.

Add both the Yahoo account and your iCloud accounts to the iphone.
Then go to settings, mail/contacts/calendar.
Go to the icloud account, and turn contacts off.
When asked, choose to Keep contacts on the iphone.
Go into the Yahoo account, and turn contacts off.
Again, choose to keep contacts on iPhone.
Now go into the iCloud account on the iphone, and turn contacts on.

On the next sync - your conatcs will be synced to your iCloud account.

Thanks,

J.

Hello there! I would love to help but it sounds like we are going to need some sort of computer to act as a median for the contacts. If you want to continue please post back here.

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
