Hi, every so often, contact details that I have entered in my iPhone 4S disappear mysteriously and I can't find them in my Contacts on the phone. Is it because my iPhone is syncing with iCloud and iTunes and somewhere a command is overriding entries I have made in my iPhone? Thanks for your help.

Make sure you only sync your iPhone contacts to a single account (i.e. iCloud only or Outlook/Email only via iTunes) as otherwise the problem you describe could indeed appear. Here is more about how to go about sorting your iPhone contacts disappear issue. Hope this helps.

I think my easiest way is:

1-settings
2-mail,contacts
3-choose from the Accounts the one you want to delete its contacts from your iphone for example Yahoo.

Try syncing everything with iTunes, to an outlook account, and then syncing back. Then in iCloud settings disable contacts. This could perhaps solve your problem, or as an above poster said, if you are syncing with more than one account, this could likely happen.
