    Do you sync to any other source?  Icloud?, gmail? iTunes to somewhere on your desktop?

     

    When was the last time you synced to iTunes and back-ed up your iPhone?  A restore would bring that back.  You would loose any activity since the last backup. 

     

    Check out this article from Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4108????

    So, have you accidentally deleted them from your iPhone? I did the same thing a couple weeks ago. Here is the solution I found:
    If you have back up your contacts, you can restore from the backup.
    Look at this tutorial from Apple:

    I have my iTunes in devices checked off to sync contacts so each time I make a change it will change in all my iDevices when they are sync'd.

    Well Don't worry my friend you can retrieve deleted contacts from your iPhone back. You just follow my given step's:-

    ===>First of all connect your device to PC over USB.
    ===>Now Launch iTunes in your PC.
    ===>Select your Device there by clicking on your device.
    ===>After connecting click on Backup & Storage option there.
    ===>Now click on Backup option there.
    ===>Then click on Restore Backup.
    ===>This action will restore deleted data back to your device.

    I can't express how important it is to back up your computers,tablets and phones just about all modern OS's provide a means to backup because at some point devices will fail or data will corrupt.

    Apple made it easy with iTunes and iCloud so you have redundant backup incase of diasaster.

    They might have been backed up through iCloud (if you use that service)

    But they are gone if not.

    Anyone know of a way to restore the missing contacts and especially the custom tone settings?  (e.g., each of my kids had their own ringtone setting, had a setting for spouse, etc.  These were all the "stock" iPhone tones, nothing purchased or created.)

     

    Another odd thing:  I just connected to iTunes to do a backup and noticed that I have about 1GB more free space (per iTunes) than I had a few days ago when I last backed up.  Makes me wonder what else is missing!
