So I was trying to get rid of a Low on Space warning/error message and I accidentally deleted all of my contacts from the Contacts Storage.

How can I get them back??? H

If the Verizon back up app hasn't automatically backed up your contacts AFTER you deleted them, just restore them.

Go to Settings > Accounts & Sync

Hitting either the sync now will either back up what you currently have (which is nothing) and rewrite over your contacts, (meaning both Verizon's back up of your contacts will be gone and you cant restore them via Verizon. Which means you would lose them permanently.) OR it will pull the back up from Verizon and apply it to your phone. I don't know which one it does.

Call Verizon and see if they can do it for you, just to be on the safe side.

The OP didn't even say what carrier she is with. if with Verizon, the back-up assistant should work, or try to sync from the google account. If you have the back-up assistant, it will be on the PC as well on her Verizon account....provided she is with Verizon

Being a Droid Incredible, it would have to be Verizon. :)

If you cant get the download to work, go into the Verizon store. The back-up assistant stores the files on Verizon's servers. They can help if you can't get it to download.
