cell phones..i mean seriously!! I have the worst luck with phones. they never freaking work right!!!

I have an iphone 4..i wake up this morning and have NO contacts, just gone! WTF!!!! Luckily I have a few numbers from my text messages so I have the numbers of a few people I talk to regularly but there are SO many that are just gone and that i need.

Any ideas on how or if i can get my contacts back?! HELP!

1 mom liked this

If you keep all your contacts on Gmail you can get them back. Do you know if you added them to gmail or just to the phone?

BTW - I also have the WORST luck with phones! I had two shitty droids and everyone convinced me to get the new Iphone 5 and I have had tons of problems with it too. lol

If you've recently synced the phone to iTunes, you can get them back. Just hook the phone up to your computer and re-sync.

DHs iphone4 deleted contacts too, he just had to re-add them. It deleted them more than once too so make sure you back it up after you get them back on there. No issues with iphone5. Maybe stop by the apple store, and see if one of their techs knows how?
