    There's a trick to this....I'm not sure what it is cause I've never experienced this problem, but I've seen something about this issue before....

    Anyone??

    How "gone" are they? If you sign into gmail from a PC, are they still there? This hasn't happened to me, but on the phone, check contacts-menu-display options-touch your gmail account, and see what is listed there.

    This is an easy one. Contacts/menu button/import - export/import from SD card. That should take care of it for you.

    This happened to me a few times, I actually had another thread on this. Yes, the solution is simple if you backed up to your SD card, but the question still is: where did the contact list go and why?

    In my case, I lost contact list, call log, and any customized ringtone associations.
