i have an iPhone 4. i recently upgraded my macbook to lion (which includes facetime).

well, i guess itunes loaded all my contacts in to the facetime mac app. so i went through one day and deleted all them, because i didn't figure the two programs were tied together.

today, i synced my iphone and it deleted all my contacts off my iphone. is there any way i can get them back. i'm like everyone else and do not know a single persons phone number, it would be a hassle sending out a mass email and waiting for people to individually respond with the contact info.

i looked in the ~library/application support/ folder, but did not see the mobilesync folder that contains previous iphone back ups. where else would it be???
QUOTE Thanks
