iPhone messages and whatsapp were frozen so I switched my iPhone4 off and back on again and then my contacts were gone! My favourites are still there but only in the form of numbers. My messages and whatsapp also have no names associated with the numbers anymore. Tried to re-save my favourites by creating a new contact but the iPhone then decides to associate a completely different person's image with the contact.


I didn't do anything strange, did not download an update (running iOS 5.1.1 as I love my google maps too much), no new apps, nothing different at all. Just went to send a text and the messages app would just keep taking me back to the home screen so switched the device on and off.




Any ideas as to how to get them back? And why did this happen in the first place?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1
