Thank God. Leaving iCloud as the only sync option was evidently not a smart decision. Since I upgraded to Mavericks, I had to use Windows via Parallels and transfer the contacts from the iPhone to Outlook as described here: http://www.copytrans.net/support/how-to-transfer-iphone-contacts-to-outlook/ Not the most ideal way for Mac users if you ask me. Thank god Apple returned the previous option.

Wow so Apple is not run by the NSA. Now all they have to do is stop gmail e-mails disappearing when you press the send button and we will be back to 2011
