    Morning everyone!

    I noticed this morning in SMS that in the address field there was a phone # instead of a name. I checked my Contacts and the person who sent the text was no longer in my Phonebook. I sifted through more text and found that a few others were listed as numbers too
    No biggie because I knew who they were by the context of the message but it made me wonder who else may have been removed.

    I did everything I was supposed to when I downloaded - nothing strange happened - but now my contacts are all out of wack. I tried to restore using DM with the back-up file I created last night but that didn't re-add the 2 I knew for a fact were missing. Luckily I remembered VZW Back-up Assistant so I used that. It advised that 28 contacts were restored 28?!?!?!?

    Did anyone else have this problem???
    And, I noticed that on one friend that was restore, her address is all jammed onto one line instead of separating street/city/state/zip.

    Thanks in advance!

    Running the non-patched VZW OS I had similar issues with contacts disappearing and even cross contamination - Mary having John's info - even the wrong Facebook associations.

    I downgraded to Sprint's .484 the day the patch came out. I have since gone back to the VZW OS with the patch and I am watching the contacts closely.

    I do weekly backups - but found I had to go back a few weeks to get uncorrupted data...

    For those of you who sync with Gmail or Outlook - this is why I always, always run a synchronization immediately before an OS upgrade. A few times I've had to restore my contact list after an OS upgrade.

    I finally just downgraded to the VZW OS which was released on 03/31 because I wasn't quite sure what else to do.
