Suddenly i lost all my contact.

I get in the habit of backing the address book up on my desktop just drag them back to the right place with iphone explorer and then fix the permissions with file

After you fix your problem use this method in the future

Its always recommended to sync contacts with itunes or outlook

because this method won't work if you upgrade/downgrade to a different firmware

Even i have experienced it..
This is because of 91 PC Suite.
When ur phone is connected and when u open the software, it will remove all contacts.
