    Every time I plug my phone into the computer to charge, some of my contacts get erased. I am not sure why it does this and would love someone to chime in and maybe give some advice so this does not happen in the future.

    Check under 'Info' (I think) in iTunes and make sure you aren't syncing contacts with your machine.

    Man, I wish I knew what it could be. It's odd that your computer would just remove contacts, especially if you aren't syncing them with it. Have you tried using iCloud? I personally do and I absolutely love it for syncing contacts. All of mine are in sync across my Mac, iPad, iPhone and iPod. The only downside I've seen it has occasionally duplicated a contact and when I remove the dup, it removes all entries for that user. Luckily the 2 times it's happened, I had my contacts also stored somewhere else.
