    Anyone had these issues?

    This is the second time in as many weeks that it has decided upon itself to just wipe all my contacts out completely?!?!?! I still have all my saved messages, and recents list, but none of the contact numbers are saved anymore!!!!!!!

    PIECE OF FUCKING SHITE!

    I've got the iPhone 4 if that helps anyone know what the issue could be?

    This happened to me the other day, I think it's because it's jailbroken. Is yours?

    Do you not have an old back up on iTunes that you can restore the phone to?

    Also, is it on the most up to date software or is it still running iOS4 or 5?

    Never ever had this sort of thing happen on my 4,4S or my 5 Jailbroken or not.

    I don't think you had any contacts in the first place. Time to man up and accept the crushing reality of a lonely existence, counting down the hours until your inevitable suicide.

    This happened to me the other day too! I've stopped updating itunes and my iphone and I do not use ICloud. Apple seriously need to sort their shit out the updates and continuous realeases of better models every 6months is a pisstake! May join the Blackberry hype or Android.

    Using the iPhone on an old (and now obsolete) iOS can make it run into problems. That maybe where you're going wrong.

    Hasnt happened to me (yet) but a few mates on facebook have complained about this

    If youve got it backed up to iCloud, does it wipe iCloud contacts too?
