    Hey guys,
    I got my Droid about a week ago and just absolutely love it.
    Today, I went into my contacts and noticed that all of them are deleted!:mad:
    I tried rebooting the phone, but they still weren't there.
    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thanks!

    Did you go into display options and make sure you have some/all groups checked? If you somehow accidentally unchecked all of your groups, your contact list would appear to be empty.

    Are your contacts still in your gmail when you sign on from your computer?

    I had the same problem. make sure gmail is set to show all contacts. to check go to contacts, hit menu, then display options and make sure all categories for gmail are checked. 6 boxes.

    Have you changed which contacts are displayed in the filters? They may all still be there, but not showing due to a filter you may have set while looking around the settings. If you go to the menu when in contacts, then pick display options, you'll have the ability to filter your contacts based on whether they have a phone number or not, and also by which email address/account they are associated with.

    All you have to do is go to your contacts, menu, import-exports and import from your SD card. They will be there.

    Man you guys are quick!
    Thanks for all of the help! I tried everything and didn't have much luck.
    At least I didn't have that many contacts and have all of them written down.

    Thanks for the help, guys.
