    Found the solution!! Finally after trying everything i possibly could, I have realised why my damn contacts disappeared.

    Whichever account you have your contacts stored on i.e google, hotmail etc must be updated. I had the old hotmail app, and forgot to upgrade to the new outlook app (as hotmail has been replaced by outlook apparently :/ ). And all my contacts are back! panic over, good luck

    I recommend to anyone with a Note 2 to backup their contacts, and it's easy. Go to Settings in Contacts, choose Import/Export and choose either Export to USB or Export to SD card. The first backs up to the phone's internal storage and the second to your SD card. It's easy to restore by simply choosing Import later. You lose absolutely no data in any of your contact fields. I've done this.

    Futhermore, you can easily import the .vcf file that the export creates to nearly all other contact software on or off the phone.

    Ridin' a Note 2 blast

    It worked! Seemed as though every other number had disappeared from my phone, all of my family back home in particular. You're so sweet to post step by step instructions for this!

    Even I have faced a similar problem. While managing my contacts on Galaxy note II, I accidentally tapped "merge with Samsung" and have lost all my contacts. Can some one help me recover my contacts.

    Go into contacts



    Display Options

    Choose contacts to display.

    I think you can figure it out from there

    If this helps you are not alone, I have the new Blackberry Z10 and the same thing keeps on happening. All my contacts vanish (just leaving a bunch of phone mumbers) and they re-appear after a reeboot. Something aint right!

    Hello all....Id hate to be the guy to deliver the news.... but this happen to me for the first time last night and i have only had the Galaxy S4... Ive tried all the fixes that were posted and none of them worked. NOW heres the "F'd" up part abut this...all my contacts came back on its own ( mind you the last fix i tired was hours ago ) 15 min ago... which tells me this is a issue with Andriods O/S (operating system)... I think if enough of us complain to Google they will get on the ball and fix this BS!!!

    ok so like everyone i had the same thing happen to me on my HTC Sensation XE, all of a sudden all my phone contacts just disappeared, and no matter how i searched i could not seem to recover the lost contact, i tried file recovery apps and software but nothing. now for the solution that worked for me, is that i was in the phonebook managed and hit the option to import/export contacts, and to my surprise when it searched the phone memory for any contact cards it found all my lost contacts and i was able to re-import my lost contacts.

    I cannot guarantee this will work for everyone on every phone that has this problem, but it might.

    Didn't work for me.
    I use Contacts+ app. Doesn't have the "MORE" option.
    I check display ALL CONTACTS, with the Default Contact app, but still does not show.

    Hey I apologise if this is a stupid reply, but the same just happened to me - all of my contacts from my sim appeared to have been deleted. I tried the display contacts thing and it didn't work but restating the phone did.

    Anyway I just found by experimenting that if I close the contacts app using a task manager - that's when the problem occurs. So maybe you have an app killer that is closing the contacts app and causing it to happen?

    Again, I may be way off but that's what was causing the problem for me so I thought I'd share.
