    Hi everyone. I have had my Galaxy rush for about a month and I've already screwed something up.
    While messing around I accidentally disabled "Contacts Storage".

    Now (big surprise) my contacts are gone.
    I've re-enabled CS and was able to catch a FEW contacts by looking through the call log before the names disappeared.

    I have a bad feeling that I already know the answer to my question...but I figured I'd try anyway.

    Thanks for any help and sorry for bothering you with my blunder.

    Mike.

    Were your contacts backed up by Google ? If so, they'll automatically restore

    You could try syncing with Google. From the home screen tap on menu, settings, accounts or it might be accounts & sync depending on your OS, and resync with your Google account.

    Apparently there was no backup and syncing didn't help...is it hopeless?

    To recover deleted contacts on Samsung phone, first check if there is a backup of the deleted contacts. If there is, you can easily recover deleted contacts from backup files. If no, you can ask help from Coolmuster Android SMS+Contacts Recovery to help you get the deleted contacts back.
