    Open your contact list (which may be nearly empty) and hit the menu buton. Choose "Import Contacts" and then try either of those options (SIM / Memory Card). A friend and I recently updated and found that the "Backup & Restore" app is anything but reliable. Especially in the areas it should be flawless... such as contacts.

    Correct. You need to import from Contacts:
    Phone-Contacts-Menu-Import Contacts-Memory Card.

    The file is called PIMXXXXX.vcf where XXXX is the backup number, eg PIM00004.vcf.

    Search your SD card first for the vcf file. it should be under sd/system/PIM

    The backup and restore app doesn't back up contacts that have been synced so have a look at your google mail account online to see if they are there or possibly on SE sync.
