    Hello all, recently i purchased an iPhone 4s the day it came out and have loved it ever since i got it. However, last night while i was out i checked my contacts and i had gone from 234 contacts to 115!! I was so confused to what happened so i of course googled it and nothing came up, I was out last night and just thought i would restore from my last backup when i get home. So this morning thats what i did, all worked well and my contacts were back on my phone and i was happy that i fixed it without any problems.... Or so i thought... i exited my contacts app and started moving some apps around my springboard, then went into my contacts once more and i see i now have 95 contacts, when i JUST literally had my 234 contacts back. I restored from last backup once more, got my contacts back, exited the contacts app, came back in and now back to 95 contacts. WTF please help me guys it seems everytime i leave the contacts app it deletes a random amount of my contacts! What to do ?!?! :((

    it could be that the last time you backed up your device you had that many contacts? so when you restored to a backup in itunes it restores the 94 contacts.

    No, because i can backup my phone and it will restore it to 234 contacts, and as soooon as i leave the app, it deletes half of them.

    Did you check groups on top left and make sure it's on all contacts and not just pc or iCloud? Just a thought

    I'm going to be following this thread. My iPhone has done this as well. Only worse. Would delete all contacts from my iPhone, iTunes, and yahoo. Thankfully they were still in an other app on my Mac called entourage. From there I was able to restore my contacts. This happened several times. I have since stopped syncing with yahoo. Since I stopped syncing to yahoo the problem went away. Not much of a solution as I would rather be syncing to yahoo. I'm thinking about switching to gmail. Wonder if things will be smoother over there.

    We are having the exact same issue. For no reason at all, all of my contacts disappeared from my phone, I couldn't even add one back in. Tried the Import SIM Contacts, and nothing happened. Just another quirk with the phone. The phone wasn't being used at the time the contacts disappeared.
