    I was using my phone for about 3 weeks and suddenly one morning part of my contacts, mostly old ones, were gone. Then I added part of the contacts which I had o my whatsapp app and once again today all contacts were gone. What is happening???

    Were they entered as Google account contacts? If so, you should be able to restore them at Google Contacts. If not, I can't tell you why they disappeared (that's something someone has to see happening to have a chance of explaining), but from now on, enter all your contacts as Google contacts (the first line on a new contact entry). Contacts stored as Phone contacts, when they disappear, are gone. (Google account contacts are still on the phone - it should be called Sync to Google and Don't sync.)

    Do you have Contacts set to show All contacts?

    Contacts (the standalone app, *not* from the Phone app) -> Settings -> Contacts to show -> set to All & see if the contacts show up.
