    Have you tried to log on to your Google account to see if your contacts were saved there? If they are you should be able to sync them, if they're not you at least know not to keep trying to get them to sync.

    If you've used a computer and they still don't show you may be in trouble.

    Not unless you backed up your contacts to another location.

    Not any "Problem" ! Simple recovery, Just do this on your computer...

    GMail now offers a restore option for Contacts - you can roll back your Contacts to how they were at any time in the last 30 days.

    Go to Contacts and choose More Actions... Then Choose RESTORE CONTACTS.


    You'll be rolling in a few seconds.... No worries!

    This will work if he ever backed up his contacts to Gmail. If he's never backed them up there though this won't help.

    It's worth a shot.

    My suspicion is that you were not actually saving them to your Google account but to the phone. I think it can be confusing when entering contacts and if you aren't careful, you can end up saving contacts to the wrong place. This is a common problem and lots of people have fallen prey to the way Samsung has you manage contacts using the stock app.

    If you are absolutely sure they were on Google and you had previously logged onto your Google account on a computer and had seen the contacts listed when when you go to "contacts" on your Gmail page, then it sounds like Google lost them which is very rare. Which is why I think your contacts were actually stored on the phone.

    One more thing...are you sure you are using the correct Google account? Do you maybe have more than one account?
