There are reports of iPhone contacts suddenly missing -- showing only numbers, no names (except for Facebook contacts).


Anyone have a fix?

    Did you figure this out?  This just happened with my phone tonight too. I've not updated the software, a few apps have updated today so there is no reason for them to disappear. Also, Reminders isn't working for me. It launches, but it doesn't work and none of my lists appear.

    If on iOS 7.0.3 check iCloud and toggle contact off and on should resolve

    I see you got help. I am having the same problem as of today. My phone was acting up yesterday, it prompted me to enter user name and password. Iall contact info is missing. Can you tell me what you did to fix? thank you!

    Thank you so much for the fix. I had searched all over help and the rest of the internet and thought I was going to have to wipe my phone because I couldn't access a previous version of my backup after it automatically backed up with my contacts missing. You're a lifesaver!

    I have tried everything.  I have toggled the contacts button, restored backups, etc.  and STILL nothing has changed.  Just like the others, my favorites tab shows the phone numbers but no names for half of my favorite contacts.  The weird thing is that let's say the name, John Smith, is missing from my favorites tab but his phone number is there.  His name won't show up if I search for it under the contacts tab but if I create a new text message then his name and number will show up there!  I'm in desperate need of HELP!  I have heard rumors of rogue apps that destroy information and you cannot get it back.  Do you know anything about the validity behind that and do you have any other possible solutions for me?

    I'm having the EXACT same issue as you.

    What did you do to sort it out?

  • garlicd Level 1 (0 points)

    MDJ101, toggle the icloud contacts on and off and THEN turn your phone off and on!!

    I recently had this happen to me and I used Siri. I asked to restore contacts and it worked. I don't know anything about Toggle, so hoping this helps. :)

    Alamo 1981 how were you able to fix it please?

  • Pink-rose Level 1 (0 points)

    I Finally found it!!

    go to settings

    then click on iCloud, you will notice that everything is turned off!!

    Just turn them on again & all will go back to normal!

    NO no need to connect to iTunes because I've done that already & all the apps that where recently downloaded & not backed up were lost    plus nothing happened!!
