    Didn't you read the notice when you hit On for Contacts in the settings? :rolleyes:


    Just have your iPhone set to sync them back from MobileMe...

    When you set up MobileMe on your iPhone, you get a window that asks you what you want enabled. Mail, Contacts, and Calender. When you hit "On" for each, it will delete what's on your phone and sync with the ones on MobileMe.

    As long as the updates from MobileMe are getting pushed to your phone now, you should get them back.


    If they don't show up, just resync them from your computer then?

    I had loaded about 25 songs on my phone Sunday night. Last night when I plugged my phone in the computer, there were no songs on my phone...I had to re-sync it...not sure what the deal was...
