    As i understand it an iPad, even a 3G one, can't make phone calls. So how do I sync an iPad's contacts with an iPhone's contacts? What about calendar? Tasks? Notes?

    Choose to sync everything on your iPhone with some program on your computer like Microsoft Outlook. Then sync you iPad with Outlook.

    You can also sync with Google Contacts and get it to work as well. That's what I do.

    But I don't have Outlook and I don't want to pay for Outlook. Why must I pay for a *Microsoft* product to keep two *Apple* products in sync?

    No, it's free. Just have a Google email [Gmail], connect your Ipad to your computer, and tell it to sync contacts with Google.

    But do what you want, it's just my solution for keeping contacts between four Idevices.

    1. Connect your iPhone or iPod touch to your computer using the cable provided with your device or by placing the iPhone or iPod touch in the Apple Universal Dock.iTunes opens automatically when connected to your computer.

    2. In iTunes, in the source list, under Devices, click the entry for your iPhone or iPod touch.

    3. Click the Info tab.

    4. Under Calendars, click Sync calendars from, and then click Outlook.

    5. Do one of the following:
    * To synchronize all calendars, click All calendars.
    * To limit the calendars that are synchronized, click Selected calendars, and then click the calendars you want to synchronize.

    Note To select multiple calendars, press CTRL as you click each calendar name.

    6. Click Apply.

    Errm. As per my previous post, I do *not* have Outlook and don't want to pay for it. How come Steve Jobs forces me to buy a *Microsoft* product to keep two *Apple* products in Sync?

    He doesn't. There is a free Outlook dude. iTunes works with other programs as well I'm sure. Try googling it.
