    After a routine reboot, I noticed that 225 of my 235 contacts were missing from my phone.
    These contacts included multiple clients, my boss, my girlfriend, my guitarist, and my brother.

    Re-syncing hasn't gotten them back. I went into Gmail to restore the contacts, and... nothing. No matter how far back I turn the clock, all of my contacts are seemingly permanently gone.

    Does anyone have any ideas? I'm on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

    How did you get your contacts to your device originally?

    I don't bother with syncing my contacts. Whenever I make a change I export them to my sdcard, and my sdcard gets backed up to my pc.

    They're gone in PC gmail as well.
    I managed to restore them from a nandroid, then weed out everyone I had deleted or changed.

    Anyone know how to FORCE gmail and the phone contact list to synchronize?

    I heard about that. But all my email contacts are there, and so are my emails.

    Atleast the account didnt disappear on you. Also glad you had a nandroid to go off of. Reloading contacts is a pain tho especially when you have to weed out all the old numbers and double numbers

    Verizon's backup assistant is worthless, too.
    Last time I used it, I got back contacts from 2006.

    That's the question I'm asking: why won't it sync, manually or automatically?
