My iMac hard drive failed on me this week so I thought to sync my iPhone 4 with my MacBooks iTunes Library. I assumed that if I clicked sync contacts it would import my current contacts into address book and so forth. Obviously I was wrong and it instead just deleted everything. Is there any way to get them back? I tried to restore but but says it is going to delete everything from my phone and naturally all the apps and settings are on my now dead iMac library.
QUOTE Thanks

So after right clicking the iPhone icon in iTunes and restoring to back-up, when i initially go back to my contacts ( my favorites folder), everything is there, for one (1) second. thats right, 1 second. Then they disappear to unnamed phone numbers... what is going on? that has to mean that the info is still available somewhere. What do I do now?
QUOTE Thanks
