    Hi all,

    Having just disassembled a friends Galaxy i9000 with NeatROM custom ROM to change the broken proximity sensor for another, I put the phone back together and found the contacts are gone from the phones memory. SIM card contacts etc are still there as expected.

    Is there any way I can recover the contacts? Is it necessary to use recovery software? Evidently I didnt do the necessary research before taking the phone apart, but I assumed contacts were stored on the internal memory, so wouldnt be lost when the phone is disassembled. :thinking:

    Thanks for any help getting us out of this pickle.:)

    If there is no backup of contacts created manually and they were not saved as Google contacts, then you're outta luck.
