    Hi,

    I have upgraded my OS from 1.6 to 2.1 today using the PC companion.
    As suggested, I have taken the backup using the backup & restore app.

    After, the phone got upgraded, I could find only facebook contacts in my list.
    then i went to View options and played around with all the check boxes and i could view the contacts.

    how ever, i could see each contact having the numbers multiple times inside it.
    so, I deleted the contacts and tried to restore them again.

    the restore was successful. i can see the contacts in my favorites list. when i dial/receive calls, i can still see the contact name.

    but, the contacts are not being shown in the list. i know this is a weird problem. but, some please help me, how to figure this out.

    Thanks,
    Shravan

    hi, have you tried on the contacts page- hit menu, import contacts, now select either SIM card or Memory card?
    hope this helps as when i updated and restored from backup/restore everything was great but no contacts and no names against my txt messagae untill i imported contacts from my SIm card.

    I have all my contacts in gmail, after the 2.1 update it just sync again with the x10. Worth the effort getting them in gmail.

    Did you backup your contacts? If you did they should be on the sd card at sd/system/PIM.

    Try looking there. But if you never backed them up and didn't sync with Gmail then I doubt you're getting them back.

    Same thing happened to me. after my initial 2.1 upgrade it was fine, all contacts were found (but 3) and restored, but yesterday i did a reset and i did backups before (to SD and Memory card) and now i only found 3 of all my 70 contacts...

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for the trouble.

    though I have used only Backup and Restore app, I really am not sure how my contacts have "become" google contacts.

    They appeared only when I checked "show google contacts". Never knew when google synced all my contacts.+ve or -ve? not sure...

    but new phone book, new OS 2.1 everything sucks...
    i wish i could get back to 1.6 donut.
