Is there a way to identify the modified date of my iphone contacts? Here is my problem -

My contacts are on hotmail.com on my lapop and iphone.

1. I was using iphone5 until 10/2 when my screen broke.

2. I started using iphone4 from 10/2 to 12/7. I added/modified contacts during this time.

3. I fixed iphone5 and started using that from 12/8 onwards. I noticed my new/updated contacts from 10/2 to 12/7 missing! I can see them on iphone4. I need to identify all the missing ones (probably 20-30 out of 2500+) and I can enter them manually on iphone5.

Would be great if anyone can help.
Thanks

Make sure your 5 and 4 are on the same iCloud account. Then go on your 4 and enable contact syncing in your iCloud settings. Lock and plug in your 4 to a power source (this is the trigger for the phone to sync to iCloud). If that doesn't work, or is taking too long, go into settings, scroll down to contacts, then add an alternate source, such as the email the contacts were made with. Another more complicated method would be to move your contacts to one SIM card, then import them to the target phone.

I've deleted the second thread you started on this same topic as we only allow one thread per topic to avoid confusing things and making conversations hard to follow.
