    I backed up my contacts to SD card before I installed a custom theme, now when I went to import them from SD I cant get hardly any of them back. When I click on import I get a message

    Create Contact under account, then I hvae myu gmail account and phone-only(unsynced), then it searches for vcard and I get another message to import one Vcard file, or Multiple V card files or All files. I have tried all of them and still dont have all my contacts it synced some from Gmail and Facebook but most of the ones I had input manually did not come back.

    Any ideas?

    Back them up via Google or Lookout.

    Everything I read said it would not work when rooted so I did not try.

    I got it now and will be using Google to keep it cleaned up.
