    So I lost some of my contacts, I don't know if its connected to me resetting my network settings. I wanna know what caused the sudden disappearance of some of my contacs. I was able to get them back from icloud though and typing names of the lost contacts on messages which enabled me to save them from messages.

    Check your Group settings in the Contacts app to see if all your groups are showing as visible.

    Mine didn't have Group when I checked before and only some of the contacts are gone not all. All my contacts are back after icloud. I wanted to know what caused the disappearance of some of my contacts.

    Then possibly you are only using one group - iCloud.

    Mine has a groups setting (see below) and pressing on it shows the groups of contacts. If one or more of those are not checked my contacts disappear.

    Now if you have no groups and iCloud is the only group listed then this isn't the issue at all and I have no idea why your contacts disappeared.
