    Did you back up your apps before you rooted? I use Astro and highly recommend it to back up my apps before wiping.

    If you are manually installing root/ROMs, most guides will have you back-up. In fact, I've yet to come across ANY guide on this forum that doesn't have it built into the steps.

    So if you are using a guide on this forum board, you did read about back-up some place.

    Note: Rooting doesn't remove any apps or actually change your configuration. It only allows you access to system files.

    Like I said, Google saves your contacts in the cloud and should resync once you input your Google info, if you even have to re-input your Google info.

    If all you did was root then you shouldnt have lost ANY data or apps. What else did you do to the phone?
