    so i recently downloaded weather bug to my phone, after it successfully installed it asked me to install something else, so i did! since then my phone has been a nightmare! the appearance of the phone is completly different in terms of sliding to turn on the screen or answering incoming calls. furthermore, when i did that it de-synced facebook from the contacts. so i thought i should just remove the facebook account and re-add it. then my phone deleted ALL my contacts! HELP!

    You simply received the scheduled update for the droid. You should be able to re-sync your facebook and everything will be fine.
    Also make sure you re-sync with gmail.

    Hey all! I had the same problem but I think I figure it out. What you have to do is go to contacts and then button for all the options (the 4 stripes) then you press display options and under your gmail or facebook, make sure that "my contacts" and "all other contacts" both are checked. This brought back all of my old ones! Hope it helps :)

    So when you synced your Facebook, it deleted all of your contacts?

    Do you see any numbers in your contact folder? If you don't, try typing in a name in the text message screen.

    Let's say you had an ADAM in your contacts...go to messaging and type in ADAM as the receiver. Does his name still show up? Do names of Facebook friends show up when you didn't have them in your contacts?

    If it does, Facebook just over rode you're contacts.

    Go to:

    1. Contacts
    2. touch the menu button (the four lines) Options menu will pop up.
    3. Click import/export
    4. IMPORT FROM SD CARD

    Just like the guy above said.

    That should restore all your contacts.

    Trust me, it scared me at first too!

    I lost all contacts too but found them on the SD card.

    Go to Menu display (4 lines)
    Go to Import/Export
    Select Import from SD card

    All my contacts reappeared, including non-FB and non-Gmail ones.

    Good luck.

    Hey all

    This was driving me nuts! I could search my contacts but they wouldn't just display. I resynced... reloaded my 355 vcard contacts to still no avail.

    Finally after making sure "android starred" group was checked in my accounts... viola* my contacts were back! All 355 of them. This fix should be applicable to this and other missing contact threads!

    Hope this puts your worry heads to rest cause I sure was livid I didn't have my contacts...

    Thanx for that! I was about to be heated. It's almost you have to take a course to fully understand this device!

    Thanks!!

    Awesome... I did this and I think it helped with my problem. Mine seems to delete them at its own will. I hope not to have to do this every day as I have been having to do for the past week. It's really getting annoying. But thanks for the tip!
