Bigpond Contacts on ipad

While I have set up my bigpond account on my iPad and have received emails successfully for somewhile, I've never had any success accessing my bigpond contacts on my iPad. If I go Settings/Contacts/AddAccount the choices are iCloud, Exchange, Google, Yahoo, outlook.com and other. When I click on "other" my choices are: LDAP Account or CardDAV Account or macOS Server Account. Putting in my bigpond account details isn't successful with any of the above (I have entered the server name as mail.bigpond.com or/and bigpond.com but neither work). Given my main contacts are on my bigpond webmail, I'm wondering if any one has a recommendation on the next best idea? 


Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
