Does anyone know of a way to export all my contacts from my iPhone straight into my iPad 2 without having to re-type all of them in? Thanks a lot.

You can sync data of your various apple products using itunes Sync.

Then sync your iPad to you iTunes
  • Download and install the latest version of iTunes on your computer.
  • Open iTunes.
  • Connect the iOS device to your computer using the included USB cable and select it in iTunes under Devices on the left-hand side.
  • Set up which items are to be synced: Click the corresponding tabs in iTunes to specify which information you want synced between the iOS device and your computer.
  • Click Apply, in the lower-right corner of the screen, to sync.

What you can Sync:

  • Movies and TV shows
  • Photos
  • Notes

The other option is subscribing to Mobile Me or wait for iCloud launch, which will let your sync data between your apple products for free.

Assuming you use the same PC for your iPhone as your iPad and the iPhone has been synched... Open iTunes and plug your iPad into your PC. Click on "the name of your iPad" in "Devices" in the left sidebar. Under the "Info" tab at the top of the screen you'll find "Synch Contacts" Uncheck this if it's checked. Then check "Selected Groups" and then check "iphone." Click "Synch" at the bottom right of the screen. Your contacts should now load to your iPad.

Hopefully this works for you.

Use iTunes to sync data from one device to another device. And you can also use a data transfer tool.
