Default Helpity help help! Contacts lost!

Please Login to Remove!

I was having issues trying to change my default email to a gmail account. I finally decided to delete the gmail account and then re-register it. When I did this I accidentally chose to sync contacts. Now all my contacts are friggin' gone! If I open my call history all the info is there for everyone, but not anywhere else.

Anyone have any ideas on WTF happened and how to recover them? I can't imagine that they were all wiped out irrecoverably.

BTW, I've checked for any filters, and even deleted the gmail contacts service book but still no joy.

A little (or alot) of help would be very helpful.

It sounds like you sync'ed to an account that had no contacts since it was new. You could export the contacts from the old account to the new one then sync. Another reason to have good backups

Did you have a backup? Otherwise, no recovery.

I have a backup at home. Guess I'll have to do that tonight when I get home.

I'm EXTREMELY surprised that it would just completely wipe out data like that. No confirmation of doing it. Not even appending the info and overwriting conflicts. Seems pretty F'd up.

If that's what you have your settings at. Do you want a windows-esk conformation on every button press?
