Contact List - Default Location

    I had syncronised and kept my contact list on the local phone then it crashed and it wiped my address book. The other day I noticed that the data folders are still in tact.

    What is the default location where Android keeps the address book? I'm keeping my fingers cross and hoping one of these locations still has a readable text file with the data.

    Thank you for any help

    My contacts are in /data/data/, but as the name implies that's not a text file (and if it were intact you presumably wouldn't be missing your contacts).

    You hadn't synced with Google, or exported contacts to sd, I assume. May be worth checking your Gmail account anyway (log on to GMail via a browser, click on the red word GMail and select Contacts. Are your contacts shown there?).
