I downloaded the Spring Cleaning app for my iPhone 5, and now my contacts are doing whacky things. I can add a contact, but a couple of days later, it will disappear. Or, contacts that I know were in my phone a few days ago are gone today. Help! This has been happening for about two weeks. I have since deleted the app from my phone, but it keeps happening.

iPhone 5, iOS 6, Ringer Switch Malfunction

    I'm not sure exactly how the app works, however since it is designed to do things to the contacts, I suggest that you try a reset first. See if that will clear things up. If not, it may be necessary to do a restore, and not from a backup since it appears the app may have something lingering in the OS. Restore as a new device.

    I have a similiar problem. I had to restore my 4th gen iPod Touch. When I restored from the iCloud backup; it showed 31 contacts but after 2 mins, those contacts disappeared. How do I get my 31 contacts back since it was orignially on iCloud? When I logged into iCloud on my PC it didn't show the 31 contacts. My last backup to iCloud was yesterday and there were 31 Contacts which are now gone.
