Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2011 10:17 AM (in response to kingstc)I'm having a similar problem. When I create a contact on my iPhone and sync to Address Book on my MacBook Pro, the contact is not written to Address Book (though any new contacts on Address Book are transferred to the iPhone). The new iPhone-created contact stays on the iPhone.
However, if I then sync AGAIN, that new iPhone-created contact disappears completely. There seems to be no way to create contacts on my iPhone and have them moved to the Address Book via syncing. I have tried resetting iSync.
Does anyone have any ideas on this?iPhone 4 (Verizon) / MacBook Pro (late 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.7), and iOS 4.2.6

I just had the same problem, and restoring from a backup wasn't working. I found a solution.
I recently had the windows restore virus on my pc - (a new variant that slipped through my security) I removed it but it left a few problems this being one of them. Basically it changed the status of loads of files and folders in my system to hidden, the iphone contacts backup being one of them. When I rectified this and restored my phone contacts from a backup they came back!
