We lost all the contacts on my husbands ipad and our PCs Outlook.
I have them on my ipad2. How can I get them from my iPad to his ipad?
If I cant do that can I copy them to my PC and then synch his?
Were both novices with iPad (Id know all these things on the computer but the ipad is very different and Im frustrated). HELP

What about the backup of your computer, can you not restore the Outlook contacts that way?
There is no way to transfer contacts from one iPad to the other, nor can you transfer then back to the computer from the iPad.
The computer is the source of information and the iPad is just a recipient, you cant make the iPad the source Im afraid.

I think you can sync them back from the iPad to the computer without wiping out the contacts on the iPad... otherwise how would any changes you make on the iPad be copied back to the computer?

You cant sync the entire contents back to the computer, as soon as you try it will erase all the contacts on the iPad.
It works for changes because the same starting point of information is on both devices, i.e. all your contacts are on both devices, when you add a new one to the ipad, iTunes can see it is an extra one over and above the list it has in your address book and adds it.
At the moment there is nothing in the computer address book, so iTunes will try to make the iPad the same as the address book on the computer, not the other way round.

I see... would creating a Gmail account and trying to sync the contacts do this, or would it also wipe out the iPad contacts?
