my iphone 4s, version 5.1.1, had dropped my contacts several times now. they arent synced to computer due to probs with that device. any recourse? any way to retrieve them? and ultimately, why would this happen?!

    I have this very same problem. My iPhone 4 just deleted my contacts for the third time.. After the first time I made a backup on my computer, which broke down right after the second time I had no contacts (talk about great timing).

    The third time I actually saw happening: phone was being charged, all of a sudden starts buzzing and shows a black screen with the 'loading' icon and the 'Slide to unlock' screen, one after another. Apart from that it did nothing anymore, so I had to reset it (home button + on/off button). After that: contacts gone. AGAIN..
