    Had to do a factory reset because my home key and search key stopped working - Motorola Droid. Painful enough, but then I noticed that I had lost several Gmail contacts. Scary! Has anyone found a good backup utility - either to backup the Motorola Droid or to back up Gmail/Calendar? Has this happened to anyone else? I don't think it was a coincidence. Appreciate any thoughts.

    Welcome to Android Forums!! :) Not sure how the hard reset caused your contacts and such to be deleted as it does sync with google automatically. When you set up your email again the phone then should sync those contacts back on to your phone again. :thinking:
