I downloaded the new update last night. Just an hour ago (next day) all of my contacts except for 1 was deleted.... ??? so weird. I have not had any other problems just this.. Anyone else? Can these be recovered? anyone know?
Contacts should be "living" on your computer (Outlook Address Book) or in the cloud (iCloud, Google). The phone is merely a device to allow you to carry your contacts with you portably. Simply synch the contacts back to your phone from wherever they are "living".
You HAVE been using your phone as designed, right?
