    Angry My Contacts List Wiped Out!!!!!

    My contacts list just wiped out the other day..... I got a call from my wife, but it didn't show her name. I thought that was weird. Then I went to the contact list and saw that none of my numbers were there. It had managed to keep/sunc my facebook and email contacts, but none of my phone numbers. I though I was good because I had done a Lookout Backup about a week prior. I did a restore of my contacts list through that, but it didn't work.

    Luckily for me, I thought that I still had my old Pre. I took it into the Sprint store to have them transfer my contacts to my Epic. They took 45 min to do it. When I came home, I saw that I still didn't have all of my numbers, my contacts had quite a few goof-ups with different FB pics and multiple entries for the same person, or even someone else's info under a different name.

    Any clue as to what happened or how I can fix it????????

    I periodically do an export to SD card back up. You also may be able to d/l your phonebook via your google email.

    Another good reason to use Google as your contact list. that way you have an automatic backup online
    Please add thanks if I have helped you in anyway. I will always spread the Aloha and reciprocate.
