Device Contacts and CardDav

Enabling Device Contacts will sync contacts that exist on your phone (either locally stored or on Exchange* servers) to FullContact My Contacts. This does not mean that FullContact will sync back un update the existing local contacts. For that, either use either iCloud, Google or Exchange to sync to Contacts.

Next, in FullContact for iOS, go to Settings - Address Books, Device Contacts and enable available sources (Local, Exchange*) to add to your FullContact account (ensures that your existing contacts on iPhone are added to Unified Contacts).


Lastly, go to iOS Contacts - Groups (upper left corner) and check if you only have All FullContact checked (this way you will make sure that no duplicates are displayed, only contacts in My Contacts).

Once this is set up, your contacts should sync automatically.
