    Default Problems with contacts after switching ROMs?

    I was trying to switch from the Desensed DasBAMF 1.7 Remix to the regular DasBAMF 1.7 Remix and after backing up everything with Titanium Backup and restoring what I thought was everything I had no contacts. I've since gone back to the Nandroid before I tried to do this but I would like to go back to the Sense version. Any suggestions?

    Titanium is primarily for backing up apps, use "My Backup" for grabbing your settings and stuff like contacts, SMS, calendar, etc.

    Put all your contacts in to googel(gmail). Once you load gmail on the initial set up. All you contacts will be there.

    Thanks, I'll be using My Backup from now on. I was only concerned because I'd switched ROMs a couple times doing what I did last night and my contacts came through just fine.

    That's what I was doing wrong, selecting Phone when importing from the SD card. I went from 350 contacts to 1600+ before catching the mistake. Yesterday I was down to 500+ after manual deletion until I read this How-To. Thanks sent, Miami.
