    Contacts Gone!

    I just synced my laptop to iTunes and ran it like I normally do but this time I go to find a # in my contacts and they're all gone!! All the #'s in my texts/recent calls are all blank w/no names...just the #'s. The only thing in my contacts is the app I DL...PkgBackup, but when I click on it...it does nothing. Please help guys, I need my contacts for work/school.

    I'm resyncing it now since the app says it'll keep a backup copy on my computer...but I dont see it anywhere.

    PkgBackup is for restoring Cydia apps not your contacts. In order to restore your contacts you need to restore your device from a previous backup with iTunes.

    Oh wow!! I didn't know that. So when I restore my device will I still be able to get my backup Cydia apps back?

    If you back them up, yes. I would use xbackup though, it is much more reliable then pkgbackup

    Pkgbackup will only backup cydia apps and tweaks as Jmills say. It's your best friend for cydia apps!

    It still says "no contacts" even after I've synced & backedup a few times. *sigh* this is a sad sad day.

    You have to "restore from backup" not sync and you have to choose a backup file that contains your contacts in it.

    Right-Click your phone in the left-pane and select "restore from backup" a list should pop up with all the backup files you have in a dropdown menu, just select a backup from a date where you had your contacts.
