Lost my contacts???

So i backed up my 3GS this morning.... after finally getting my 4s activated I restored from back-up, but just noticed my contacts are missing.  Everything seemed to transfer (texts, voicemails, missed.received calls) except contact.

 

My old phone is wiped clean, is there anything I can do?

Contacts are probably still there.  I've seen cases where the contact app doesn't show them.

 

Check your texts... go to one of them, scroll to the top and tap 'Contact.'

 

If it's correct then you still have them.  Make a simply change (remember who this is to undo it later), and save it.

 

Then check to see if your contacts are back!

Thank you.... I had "Check your texts... go to one of them, scroll to the top and tap 'Contact.'" and noticed it was correct.  I didn't know about making a small change though.  It worked and they are back.
