    This is the second time that I've lost my contacts from my phone, just POOF! disappeared.

    I managed to get my phone contacts back by syncing with Outlook, but now all my Google contacts are gone.

    Help please! I don't understand why this phone seems to have a mind of its own sometimes.

    I've never had this issue. Do your contacts still show in Google Mail's contacts list? If so.....

    In the "People" app, select Menu, View and ensure that Google is checked.

    Menu-Settings-Data synchronisation-Google, select Contacts and they will be sync'd immediately from your Google account.
    Optionally check Auto-sync to do this automatically whenever changes are made.
