My wife called me this morning and said that her phone did some type of sync with her contacts to Verizon and now all of them are gone. She said that it synced 4 contact and the only ones she has are like the stock Verizon ones to get into the account information.

I'm not sure what happened or how to fix this. Any suggestions would be great, thanks...(I don't have the phone with me so I will have to try suggestions when I get home)

well i would go to the verizon website and sign onto her account and check the contacts area of her line, perhaps backup assistant still has them in records

also have her log into her gmail account and checks the contacts section there perhaps she hopefully had them sync'd at some point

Check to make sure Contacts is set to the group...Display All and not....Phone Only.
Even if only 4 synced they should all still be backed up to your Verizon account. The only way to delete them from Verizon backup is from a computer. She's most likely just displaying the wrong group under contacts.

I had her try the Verizon backup assistant but she is not registered nor has she signed up for that service. I also had her sign into her Gmail account and go to contact and there is nothing there...I'm not sure what the heck has happened. It's hard when I don't have the phone in front of me.

Does she have any backups available to restore? CWM? Titanium Backup? I had a similar issue happen to me once. While linking my contacts with different accounts I started getting tons of duplicates and even some triples. I figured the easiest way was to clear them all and re-sync with backup assistant. Instead of syncing what was on the VZ server to my phone, my phone synced and removed everything from the server. Titanium saved the day as usual.
