    Don't you hate that?!!!!! I've had that happen and it sends me into a major tail-spin! Azstar reminded me recently that, if you've got a backup, you can restore your contacts using advanced restore. You might look into that.

    The other thing that happens to me EVERY TIME I upgrade is all my profile settings get reset to vibrate/mute - THAT gets my goat too! I'll try to restore that next time it happens. It ought to be an adventure - I HATE those kind of adventures!

    Me too JB. I was in such a hurry I guess I overlooked that when I did my backup-oops. Anyway, I have new folks that I didn't have before so that's the upside. I will def remember to go advanced next time-I hope.

    ...but what I'm saying is, IF you backed up (even as you did the OS upgrade) you should be able to get the contacts back by doing an advanced restore. If you backed up those contacts should be backed up too.

    just to add to what jb said, if you have new contacts as you said...be sure to write those pin numbers down before you do your advanced restore because you will lose those when you do the restore.

    Yep, good point Cat. The advanced restore is a replacement so anything you've done since the upgrade will be overlaid, i.e. deleted.
