    I lost all my contacts for some reason when I upgraded to iOS 5. Did you upgrade to iOS 5? If you did just downgrade. Or if you didn't, try and restore you iPad to a previous date and see if they show up.

    It's not as simple as u accidentally flicking to another address book using that 'groups' feature in the top left hand of the contacts app?

    It is my understanding in an article I read that once you go to iOS 5 there is no going back to a previous version.

    Correct. It is not something we want to advocate, though ~ as we can not assist members if using Beta version and something goes wrong.

    So ~ back on topic, please especially since the OP never stated he was on iOS 5.

    I'm confused. Why do you allow these huge iOS 5 topics with everyone trying iOS 5 to be on these forums if you don't want to advocate it?

    And if you want your contacts back just restore your iPad until you get your contacts back.

    Testing is advocated, but only if you are an official dev.

    I hate these grey areas as much as you do, since by tweaking my software Papa Jobs is angry with me...
