Changing iCloud settings in iOS freezes iPhone Settings

Hi All,

I am trying to convert to iCloud and have problems with the Contacts - it's on the 'on' setting on iOS but no contacts get downloaded in the Contacts application. I've already got all my contacts uploaded on iCloud.com and syncing via my mac book air.

I'd like to sync with my Contacts on my iPhone but for some reason every time I toggle a setting on the iCloud settings on iOS, the app freezes. It just says "turning off contacts..." forever. Or "saving..." but doesn't actually save.

Any tips would be appreciated - I've done many searches and most say turn iCloud on and off on the iPhone but I've done that and can't turn it off because it freezes!

Thanks in advance

Did you try a hard reset?

Otherwise, your best bet is a clean restore from backup.
