    About a week ago my phone lost all its contacts. I forced a sync and they came back. I then turned off contact sync to try and ensure it wouldn't happen whilst I was away, and today they've gone again. Anyone else had this happen? Any idea of a fix?

    TIA.

    Hope you find 'em


    Cheers!

    Err.. I was hoping you had been in Googlemail => Contacts .. the clicked on the "Export" thingy (in line on right-hand side of Import.. Export .. Print... ) which exports a .csv file you can (I'm assuming...) restore from...

    Cheers!

    I can force a sync from google and they come right back, but it seems to stop sync'ing, and remove them from my phone every now and then. I do backup using mybackuppro too though, just in case!

    Shouldn't be happening. But, worst case scenario, sync to get your contacts, then download contact2sim from the market and back 'em up in your SIM card.
