    Did you synchronize with your computer and not check the sync box for contacts in iTunes?
    Re sync with iTunes and make sure this is checked.

    Make sure you don't have anything typed in the search box.

    I can't address your actual problem, but most of us choose to sync our contacts online. Because it is automatic it means if/when the iPad has problems all our contacts are safe and easily recovered.

    Google is probably the easiest of the services to set up, and free. In order to use Google contacts with the iPad you need to set it up as an Exchange account, not the standard GMail one. If you are interested, the iPad setup instructions are linked below. It won't help this time, but it could save you from a next time.

    Setting up Google Sync with your iOS device : Mail, Calendar, & Contacts - Google Mobile Help

    Try connecting to iTunes.
    Make sure you check off to sync your contacts and let us know what happens.

    Your not helping yourself really, you crossposted the same thing with little to no information in, so making it difficult for people to help you diagnose.
    When people do try to help you brush them aside.

    Take a deep breath and a step back and allow people to help you, give us more information and answer their questions, somebody will hopefully be able to help.

    There is no more information to give.i saved a contact , contact book closed by it self ,when i opend the contact everything was gone.
    Syncronization its out of the question because i sync it after the delete of contact book and the only sync i can do now is after the delete.
    Sorry if i am frustrated but it really is a shock i worked on my adress book a lot !

    That explains things a bit better.

    Your thread says you lost all your contacts.
    Are you saying that not only the new one is missing but everything else?

    Have you called Apple?
    You are under warranty.
    They will likely walk you you through a reset of your iPad.
    Make sure you synchronize with iTunes prior to calling so you can restore all your stuff once done.

    That is a much better fix in my opinion.
