I got up this morning and finally, there it was!!! The update Ive been waiting for. So I hit update and got in the shower and went on with my business. Got out and the phone was sitting there like brand new. Checked everything, all looked good. All my contacts were listed under contacts untill about an hour after I did the update and now they are still on the phone because I can search for them and use the folder all contacts but just under the normal contacts where it shows the picture there are only three there the rest are gone. Has anyone else ran into this and might you know of what I can do to get my contacts back this is driving me crazy!!!!

Were most of your contacts from Facebook/myspace etc.? Try opening the app and signing in, I know I had to sign in to each of my accounts again after updating.

No, they were just regular contacts. A lot of them had been synced up with facebook but werent ported in from facebook. I can put a folder on the homescreen with all contacts and it pulls up the small popup window but when I go to regular contacts where it has their picture beside it theres nothing.

How do you go about backing up the contacts? I came from a BB where the desktop manager had an option to save all the info but this came with no software like that.

Thank you DA6, as soon as I went to options>import from sd card they all loaded up. I guess the update reset it and took them off the phone or something.

After my update it asked me to re sync with facebook and i said no.. Maybe it was there that something went wrong. I have all my contacts, phone log and everything else is running great. I would try reloading them, if that doesnt work then hopefully you have your other phone and can stop into a verizon to re install those contacts. Hopefully you work it out though. That would suck if you lost all your contacts..

I had the same problem all my contacts gone from regular contacts, but still in my favorites, still on facebook, it was really weird. However figured to import them from the SD card, thought this happened to everyone else.... guess not.

I didn't save the contacts but only used the backup tool SE said to use, and now I got no contacts, but as The Protagonist says have favorites ect.

What do I do?

I lose all my business and new contacts. New contacts I add disappear, all the businesses are gone. I am very fed up.
Palm OS, 15 years ago, was better than anything on the market today.
