I tried to facetime with my mom tonight (unsuccessfully) and now my phone book is screwed up. All I have is email addresses for my contacts; their phone numbers are gone. Any ideas?

Did you do a recent restore? What version of iOS are you on, and are you using wifi or 3G?

Sounds like you might have logged out of your Apple ID. Login in these areas:

Settings > iCloud -- make sure all the services are checked.
Settings > Messages > iMessage
Settings > FaceTime
Settings > iTunes & App Stores

Followup - lost contacts in iPhone 4s

Well, after further struggles with attempting to find my phone numbers/contacts - I've discovered that my issue is not necessarily related to the facetime event. I still need help though and am hoping that it's a quick and easy fix that I just don't know about...so I don't have to move my question to the other board.

I inadvertenly deleted my "default" exchange (gmail) account around the facetime call last night. I have tried to add the exchange/gmail account back but am not sure how to get it to import my contacts from my gmail account into my phone.

Advice?

Thanks!!
