    All my iPhone contacts was suddenly deleted today without any warning! Only thing I can think of, is that I updated to the latest version of the Springpad App in AppStore. Then later when I was going to call, all contacts gone!
    How can this happen??

    I was lucky to sync all my contacts to my address book on my Macbook a while ago. I synced my contacts in iTunes again.
    But after this sync, all my contact pictures where mixed up!

    2 major bugs in one day!

    I just had the same problem
    iPhone 3Gs on 4.2.1
    About a month ago my contacts disappeared
    Yesterday my contacts disappeared again
    I did a resync on iTunes and all my contact photos were mixed up.
    I had to do a full restore to fix

    Anyone any ideas about the cause?

    At least I had a small laugh. My contact picture was replaced with a the pic of a Hindu lawyer friend - complete with turban.

    Solved!

    Finally found the reason wha all contacts was deleted for me 3 times...
    Have an app called "Opplysningen 1881", this caused the contact list to be corrupt!
    An update has come to this app now though..
