    Try this go into settings And check Auto-Sync .. & Ck Contacts ... and give it some time ....

    When syncing is happening you will see the sync icon in the SystemTray of the Notification Bar at the top of the phone's Display .

    Are you using the default Contacts app? Or, are you using a 3rd party app? This is strange as I've never had issues with anything syncing up.

    What firmware are you running? menu>settings>about phone

    Yeah, I was going to say, no one has even mentioned for him to restart the phone, let alone factory reset.

    Yeah I doubt a Boot into Safe_Mode would be helpful ...

    I did restart the phone when at the first time i saw my contacts are missing.. i think i should add to that- some of the contacts went to favorites even though i had only one favorites before.. and they all are scrambled not in order i mean to say..though most of the numbers are missing..that is very weird. I just checked the gmail account where i see only my two my favs contacts that are showing on the phone.Phone keeps saying problems with contact sync and problems will be solved shortly then how they syncd the two my favs contact on gmail but not the rest of them..and now my contacts are also gone.

    Ok look at your Contacts for gmail on the web from your PC ... check that they are OK ... If not fix them first ...

    Then do a factory reset .. you will re-register you phone the same way when it was new ... BE SURE to use the SAME gmail account you USED Originally

    I am having the exact same problem. Sync works for everything else, just not for contacts.

    I have the same problem for about two weeks now I called tmo and they said it's a known issue and they are working on it, but they could not give me a date by when it would be resolved. This really sucks!! since there is no other way to backup your contact other then through the sync method.

    Use the Market app "MyBackup Pro" to backup EVERYTHING on the phone ,

    Apps, data (this includes contacts, msg, etc.), phone settings, etc

    If you use that mybackup pro don't ever restore your contacts thru it or your sync will fail from then on. Just so you know it will restore your contacts thru MBUPro and your sync does start working on your phone you'll never know.
