    Do you still have them online?

    Gmail -> Contacts

    Maybe you're just having trouble syncing, maybe reboot?

    Crisis averted. I guess my display settings were just changed or something by the update. Wow that was pretty scary!

    People if you lost your contacts during the update import them back, they will be on your SD card. Go to contacts and click options and you'll see the import contacts button.

    I read that people who lost their contacts did so because they don't have gmail set to sync. Check your settings on the Droid and at gmail. Hope that helps.

    I lost all my contacts when I loaded Dajaoffice and Companionlink to sync with my microsoft outlook. It incorrectly synced and imported all the incorrect times from mu calender. 300+ phone numbers were gone. Thanks hookbill. I found import contacts under
    " contacts" , " settings" Made my day
