    I logged on from my computer and checked all the tabs. Nothing in Contacts, nothing in Trash. Do you know anything about looking through the SD card?

    Not sure if verizon phones work like this but you can try. There is an app on the market called sim contacts. I know on gsm phones contacts are stored on the sim card and yours might be to. Worth a shot anyways.

    Thanks, but it didn't find anything. :-( I don't know if I did it right, but it kept giving me blank screens.

    It loads sim card right away, so if it was blank nothing was there. Im out of ideas. Everyone has already said everything i know of.

    One other thing I've seen on the forum is the possibility that you may actually have ended up with two very similar Google accounts and the sync went through on the one that HASN'T been the destination of all your information. I've seen it explain missing music and photo files. Maybe??? Not too techy here but it's worth checking into.

    Wow...How would I even find out such a thing?? Everything else goes to my regular Google account - calendar etc. I had the Google account forever before I got the phone, so the only account that was ever associated with it was that one.

    I sure hope someone more adept picks up here because I really don't know. If you had another password in the past, try logging in with the old password and see if somehow during the password change you unknowingly created a second account with the same email address... That's what had happened in the post I read.

    Also you might try going to settings and unmounting, then remounting your sd card if you haven't tried that already.

    OK, new problem...I read somewhere that I can set up a second Gmail account just for syncing my contacts. After all this, I decided to try it. I made a new gmail and added it to the phone. Checked off "sync contacts." It says it synced, but the contacts on the phone are now not on that new Gmail account. How do I upload everything from the phone to Gmail?

    Sorry for your loss, that can be a real pain. A tech showed me a good app for cases like this. Its called my backup pro. Backs up everything and can be set to do backups on schedule. Like late at night. It can save to simply or online.
