What The HECK Happened to my CONTACTS???!!!

Last Updated:

  1. Just flashed to cm-6.1.0-RC1-Liberty-signed (Froyo 2.2)

    Somewhere in the process, I lost all of my contacts from the SIM card! How the heck does THAT happen?

    Weird part is I use the Lookout backup feature, but the restore doesn't replace them either!

    Anyone else having similar problems? Any suggestions other than manually adding my contacts 1 by 1 for hours on end?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Sorry to hear about your issues. I don't know of any solution. However, to avoid any future related problems...I suggest centralizing you contact database on something other than SIM (e.g. - Outlook, Google, etc.). Use two actually to CYA.

    Did you make a nandroid like all the tutorials say to do? Are you sure you lost your contacts from your sim? Is "display sim contacts" checked/unchecked?

    Edit: I assume you already added your contacts again. To avoid this from happening again, you can export your contacts to your SD card or sync them through google

    This was an old thread that has already been answered on another forum that the OP posted the same question on. With CM 6.x for the Aria, it cannot at this point read contacts from the SIM, that was his whole problem.
