    So I flashed the new fresh rom and restored my backup from titanium...everything seems to have been restored but contacts, messages, and call history. Could careless about history but is there anyway to get contacts back?

    You should be able to get your contacts back via google servers. when you sign into your phone for the first time it should automatically sync all of your contacts via google servers to your phone

    The way to restore text messgaes and call history is to restore [voicemail]dialer 2.2 and [sms/mms/apn] dialer storage 2.2. I think you can restore contacts using [contacts/calls] contacts storage 2.2 but I am not sure on that one. Reboot your phone after restoring to see the changes.

    That's the thing with titanium. If it sees the file already exist in the phone then it doesn't restore it and it doesn't know that data still need to be restored so you have to restore the data manually. Try the suggestion above but just restore data.

    ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS save your contacts as Google contacts, not phone contacts, to make restoring them painless. When they're on your phone and you wipe your phone, they're gone. When you sync to Google, they come back if you've saved them through your Google account.

    This is true. You can also save your contacts to your card by going to you contact list (people) then hit menu and Import/Export and do and export to card. You can do an Import to restore them back to your phone. The only problem I seen with this is it won't restore your group contacts if you've set that up previously.
