One of the main things I was worried about wrt to jailbreaking was losing my contacts. My entire phone was essentially wiped clean after I jailbroke on 2.x. That sucked. Well, I was now thinking of trying to jailbreak 3.0.1. First though, I wanted to make sure I had everything backed up and would be able to get my stuff back after jailbreak. Sure enough, even before the jailbreak, I lost all my contacts. I went through and checked the "sync" box for everything (apps, photos, contacts). For contacts, I said sync with google contacts. I entered an email address and password (different than the one I had synced with a couple months ago). I went back to the summary screen and clicked apply. After the syncing was finished, I checked the contacts on my iphone...nothing. I went to my gmail contacts, nothing. Ok, please tell me there is a way to get my contacts back and reverse this process? I think I had pressed the "sync" button in itunes yesterday, though I do not believe I had the contacts box checked off when I did it the other day. But isn't there a way I can get my phone/contacts back to how it was right before I did the sync today which effectively wiped out all my contacts? Ugh, I can't believe I lost those contacts. If you guys can help me out and walk me through this step by step, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. Thanks.
