    So I have the Droid Razr M from Verizon. I updated to KitKat and now I have lost all of my previous contacts. Has anyone else experienced this? What do I do?

    Where are the contacts located? On the phone or on the SD card?

    Try going into the app manager. Find contacts and see if there is anything under the cache and how much data there is.

    I would be guessing your contacts are on the phone still, based off that, because your data is about double mine. But how to get them and where they are. ........ is another story.

    Try this out. ...... tap on the contacts icon, then hit the menu button. In the options that pop up there should be an option to.......Contacts to display.........tap on that. Then select.... All contacts.

    Check your SD card to see if anything may look strange such as contacts
