    Can you restore your phone from a backup?

    Do you currently use Outlook on your PC for calendar events? If so and you wanted to sync your iPhone's calendar with Outlook's calendar, why would you select Calendars for replace info on your iPhone? If this didn't replace your iPhone's calendar events with your Outlook calendar events, this indicates you are not currently using Outlook for calendar events.

    Do you have Outlook 2003 or 2007?

    If you haven't synced your iPhone with iTunes again since this happened, do not sync your iPhone again. Try restoring your iPhone with iTunes from your iPhone's backup.

    If this restores the calendar events and contact info on your iPhone and it should, if you have Outlook 2003 or 2007, before syncing contacts and calendar events with Outlook, enter one unique contact and one calendar event in Outlook. Make these up if needed, which can be deleted later. This will provide a merge prompt when syncing this data with Outlook, which you want to select.

    Look for a folder called "Mobilesync". This folder contains the backup folder for your iphone. Copy it to the location where you found the Mobilesync folder you're using now on your PC. Overwrite this one and restart itunes. Now you should have a backup going back to the point when you did your mirror backup. Restore your phone using this backup and your contacts should be back on your phone.
