    ok. i have backed-up using bootstrapper. i installed gummayjar (thanks...you know who) and didnt have the majority of my contacts. i went back to stock.

    today, i installed apex. NO contacts showed up. once again, i went back to stock.

    i thought i synced my contacts with google and i also used the backup assistance.

    i want to go back to gummyjar, but i want my contacts. what am i doing wrong?

    Log into gmail online, contacts there? On your phone, under accounts, make sure google stuff is syncing.

    Not sure what to say, if your backup app didn't save them, they might be lost.

    So do you have all of your contacts listed online at verizonwireless.com under Backup Assistant? If you do, go to that page then export contacts as a csv file, then go into your gmail Contacts tab and import the csv file. Then sync Contacts in your phone under Accounts.
