    Are you using iCloud?  Is someone else using the same account?  If so, they may be affecting your contacts.

    Try to have only one service synchronizing your contacts. If you're using more than one, for example iCloud, iTunes, MS Exchance, ... there my disappear some contracts.


    Good luck

    How can I turn off my iCloud

    iPhone: Settings -> iCloud -> disable "Contacts" if you want to disable the sycronizing of contacts with iCloud. If you want do disable for example Calender to disable "Calender". And if you want to sync your contacts with your Mac/PC go in iTunes on your iPhone -> Overview (i think it is overview, i only new the german translation which is "Überblick", but it is the second tab) and select under Contacts the way you wanna sync your contacts
