How angry should I be that updating my settings deleted my contacts from my 4s?

    Were you actually syncing your contacts with iCloud? I'm guessing you were not. You were just backing up to iCloud.


    Contacts are intended to be synced with a compatible cloud service or contact manager, as I've already stated.


    I don't know what "problem" you're talking about that has been "happening since Aug 12".


    The "problem" is that you updated you phone without ever having actually synced your contacts with anything. The If you would have actually turned on iCloud contact sync, you wouldn't have had this problem.


    I don't know how you expect "seagate" to save you... unless they have a contact sync service that I don't know about.

    Tha't the problem, you're complaining which will get you nowhere.  Nobody likes a complainer, especially one that goes on and on about it.  AFAIK, the iCloud backup doesn't back up contacts at all, that's what iCloud sync is for.


    And my reading comprehension is fine, especially between the lines.
