I just got the dang phone a couple of days ago and I sorta let it slip on my carpet. Then I noticed all my contacts went missing. It's like dropping my phone knocked the memory out of place. I have Verizon service and this is my 1st iPhone. I just want my contacts back or do I have to put them on the phone again?

Have you done a sync on it to a computer or to iCloud?

No I haven't synced it to iCloud but I have synced to iTunes but I never synced the contacts to iTunes. I have the iPhone 4s 16gb. So am I just SOL or what?

do u have the Verizon back up assistant? That will do it if you did it from the iPhone or your last Verizon phone. Good luck. Or if you have an old Verizon phone, hook up the Verizon back up assistant to it, then do the same on iPhone (found in iTunes just look up Verizon backup) and you are good to go!

That's odd that a fall would cause memory lose on a chip. Is the other data I tact? Your calendar, apps, etc.?

maybe by dropping your phone you gave Siri a concussion?

don't pay attention to him, he's just trying to be funny.

Did you look on your contact app?
When I first upgraded to 5.0 all my contacts went missing from my phone app, but not from my contact app. All I had to do was Tap on one of them and all of them reappeared on my phone app.
If that doesn't work re-sync and that should fix it.
