Droid 1 phone, and I did something and it wouldn't boot. I followed the instructions to unbrick the phone so I wiped it clean and loaded 2.01 then back to 2.1. Did a factory reset a few times.
So I lost all my contacts and apps. Of course I didn't have a backup of all my contacts and really need some of them back. They're still in the phone somewhere.
When I open Contacts or in Phone / Contacts all that are there are the ones I put back in that I could remember. The ones I really need I can't remember (of course) but when I use Voice Dialer and say one of the old contacts it comes up and dials correctly.
For example... I don't have Brad Smith in my Contacts. I lost his number when I wiped the phone. If I go to Voice Dialer and say "call Brad Smith" his number comes up and I can dial it. I can then add him back into my contacts and everythings good.
The problem is that I can't remember all the contacts I am missing. I know this sounds strange, but somehow Voice Dialer is pulling up my old lost contacts from somewhere and I need to find out where so I can restore them. Voice Dialer pulls up my old contacts that are not in my current contacts list. How?
Anyone have any ideas?
