The default way right now of getting contacts from one to the other is to use iTunes on a Windows or Mac computer. When you sync your iPhone with the computer, it will then sync the contacts as well. Then once you sync the iPad using the same computer and same iTunes, your contacts will sync as well. But, that is not a "direct" sync. It requires a "third party" (i.e. the computer running iTunes).
The primary way to have a "direct" sync is to use MobileMe. If you have a MobileMe account and then setup both the iPhone and iPad to use that MobileMe account, you can then have it sync contacts (and calendars and bookmarks). Technically it is still using a "third party" (i.e. the MobileMe server), but you really don't need to see or deal with that server...it all happens automatically in the background if you want it to. MobileMe is NOT free.
Now, the problem is that Apple no longer is allowing new MobileMe accounts. They introduced iCloud, which will do much of the same stuff if slightly differently, but iCloud won't be available until the fall...and until then, for some reason, Apple is not accepting new MobileMe accounts. FWIW, when available, iCloud will be free.
The other potential option is to use Google. I believe that you can sync you contacts on an iPhone/iPad with Google's Gmail system, but I have never really set it up, so I cannot say how well it may or may not work. http://www.google.co...y?answer=138740

Turn on Settings -> General -> Location Services on both devices and under that same screen, make sure the Bump application setting is ON for both devices. Just turning on Location Services by itself doesn't mean Bump has it's location setting ON.
