    Default Help,I lost my contacts!
    Help!

    I did a few Cydia updates last night and woke to find that I lost my contacts.


    My first mistake, I did not back up my iphone to itunes,I used iCloud. I called my airtime provider and they were useless. Basically they said to contact Apple, but then told me my phone is out of warranty and that Apple would not be able to help me???

    After about 40mins of messing around with this " helpful customer services person " I was no closer to recovering my contacts.



    Please any help,I would be grateful indeed.

    Rayhelp.

    If something deleted them from iCloud, you may be out of luck.

    They might be in your iCloud backup, but you have to restore your iPhone...
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    Thanks Scoops

    I am beginning to think this, I am so angry though mate. Is there anyway of accessing the disk via SSH and somehow finding the contacts?

    I am really desperate, please anyone any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Log in to your iCloud account and check if there are contacts. iCloud deletions are pretty final if you don't have your own backup.

    Bummer.

    Most apps, including WhatsApp, use your phone contacts. With iCloud being empty, all apps will be affected.

    Btw, did you log into the iCloud website?

    At least iTunes backups all your data. iCloud doesn't do everything.

    If you download the LookOut Mobile Security app, it backs up your contacts. I know it doesn't help at this point, but for future reference.
