Recently, I have found that my contacts no longer have phone numbers associated with them. In my text messages, I am no longer viewing names of contacts, but their would-be phone numbers. Unfortunately, this means that the only phone numbers I have of my contacts are the phone numbers of the contacts that have texted me somewhat recently. Befuddled, I decided to restore my iPhone via a manual backup from a month ago on my computer. Upon finishing the restoration, my contacts were restored, and I thought that I had solved my problem. Five minutes later, however, there are again no phone numbers associated with my contacts :/


Randomly, there are contacts that do not have this issue. I do not understand why this is, or know if it is of any significance.


Is there some way I can get the numbers back? This is very frustrating.


Thanks for your time in advance

    This is only the 2nd report I've seen of this so far.  I suspect it may have something to do with facebook contact integration.


    If you have it turned on, try turning it off.

    I just had the same issue crop up.  I turned facebook off and it's still the same.  Even my Favorites just show up as numbers.  All the contacts are still listed, but without numbers.  When I I tap "send message" to a contact, their phone number shows up ever so breifly before their name takes over, so it appears the numbers and names are linked up somewhere.


    Any help appreciated.

    This just happened to me as well.  Did anyone figure out how to fix it?
