    Check your External...

    Hard Drive. Hopefully, you backed-up everything? :cool:

    As far as I understand it, or at least from my experience, when you plug your iPhone into a Mac and the contacts are different it asks which way you want to sync. For example, when I edit contacts on my iPhone, then plug it into my Mac to sync, a box pops up telling me that the contacts are different on the two devices, and asks me if I want to sync from Mac to iPhone, or iPhone to Mac.

    In other words, if you plug your iPhone into your computer it should give you the option to sync the contacts on your iPhone back to your computer.

    Unfortunately the music side of things is a completely different situation, and I am not sure what to suggest here :confused:

    the only thing is that it only does that if the iphone is previously synced with the computer and if he had to reinstall stuff the computer may not recognize that the iphone was at one point synced with the computer
