    Do you get an error message when trying to save a new contact in the yahoo mail app?

    Before continuing, trying powering of your ipad and turning it back on.

    The power cycle has a way of fixing a lot of problems with iOS devices and is a good place to start before tinkering with your settings.

    Hi Norplan,

    Have you tried setting up your Yahoo account via iOS's Accounts area? I'm thinking that just the Yahoo mail app only syncs contacts one way. Contacts are only synced to the device but not from the device to Yahoo mail.

    Take a look at this tutorial on Yahoo for setting up Yahoo mail, contact, and calendar sync via iOS's built in tools. Helpcentral | SLN14840 - Sync Yahoo Calendar and Yahoo Contacts with iOS devices

    :innocent::hammer:... Tried Removing / Rebooting Yahoo Mail App. Editing New Contact ( Source of HicUp).. Have gone at it from every possible angle / avenue... Unless I'm Missing Something , Tripping Over it and Can't See, The Problem seems to be the New Yahoo Mail App... For one thing No Provision to Add a New Contact, have to do the Back Door approach if you will..lol.. :eek:

    Sorry for the delay I forgot all about this thread. :oops:

    It's simple to do on a computer. Go to the old Yahoo #1 account in your browser > click the contacts icon > check off all contacts with the check all box on top of the list > use the actions menu to export them to "Yahoo CSV". Sign out or open a different browser and sign into Yahoo #2 go to contacts > Actions > Import and select the file you just downloaded from account #1.

    As for doing it on an iPad I have no clue. Usually there's a forced mobile view that's lacking features - I doubt it would support contact import/export.

    What about exporting your Yahoo contacts following the above steps then importing them into your Gmail contacts? Those should then sync to to the iPad/iPhone.

    Other than that I'm fresh out of suggestions. I don't use Yahoo's services very often.
