I've activated iCloud and it synced my iPhone with my Outlook Contacts.

Now all my old iPhone contacts are gone.

How can I change it back? I want to have only the iphone previous contacts.

Thank you!

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1

    Go to settings/icloud on your phone.  Make sure you are logged with your Apple ID.


    Contacts should be on, click on it to turn it off and choose keep (even though you show no contacts)

    When the process is done go ahead and turn on contacts again, choose merge.  All your contacts should show up if you had a previous backup to icloud.


    NOTE: You don't have to restore your phone.
