    Are the contacts in itunes? They should be since it does a back up. If you email apple support they will get back to you within 24 hrs. Both my wifes and my phones had no issues with the upgrade.

    Right click on your phone in the left menu of itunes and select restore from backup. IF you have ever backed up or synced your phone before you upgraded this should restore your contacts.

    You also need to set it up so that your contacts from your iphone get synced with outlook or in my case I just use windows address book or windows contacts depending on what version of windows you have. This way you always have another copy of your contacts on your computer.

    That happened to my older brothers phone. Not sure how he fixed it, but he did. Keep at it. Check out Google a lot.

    Most likely you need to check the Sync settings in iTunes.

    This time use Google Sync. It'll never happen again.

    Doing the restore/back up didnt do ****.

    Called apple, couldnt get them back either... Then I remembered when I had my Storm2, I uploaded my contacts at that time to Gmail.. so I got most of em back... Still pissed off though.. Missing about 40 dif. #'s

    Someone needs an android phone backed up to googles magical cloud. How many of your booty call numbers did you lose?

    Thanks for the reminder! Backing up/Synching my 'Droid... Now.

    Astro File Manager will backup your installed Apps as well... A must have for any 'Droid user, IMO.

    Email is good works best if you have gmail though. If you dont like the default email client there are many to download. I love android though lots of stuff to tinker with if you know how. Ive been running android 2.2 for a while know and it plays flash videos and games great.
