Nokia C7 - Contacts Lost

Guys,

 

I'm having a new problem with my C7.

 

All my contacts which were saved in Phone Memory were deleted without doing anything. I was using Facebook and when I closed the applications, there were no contacts on my favorties.

 

I checked the contacts and there were no contact available in my phone memory.

 

Anyone encountered the same problem? Or do we have any way to get those lost contacts back?

 

Suggestions are highly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Regards,
Azii Ahmad

Hello aziaahmad !

Check if your Nokia C7 is displaying contacts saved in the phone memory and not somewhere else ( since you said that all your contacts are saved in the phone memory ).

To do so :
Go to "Contacts" --> Press on "Options" and select "Settings" --> Check what is selected under "Contacts to display", it should be "Phone memory".

 

Hope this helps !

Let me know if it works !

Re: Nokia C7 - Contacts Lost

If I remember correctly, this happened to me one time too (C7-00).
I think it had something to do with the phone running out of memory.

I rebooted the phone and the contacts were there again.

Lumia 1020, N9, 808 PureView, Windows 7 Pro 64bit

Hello guys,

 

I also lost all my contacts but luckily, i connect my phone to PC from time to time to sync my phone details with nokia suites. So, when this happens, i just reconnect my phone to PC and sync with the details stored in nokia suite. after syncing, all my contacts are restore to my phone. you just have to re-assign your favorite number shortcuts again.

 

Hope this help.

The same thing had happend to me before, but after rebooting the device they came back. It just happened againSafter I updated some apps via the PC Suite, but even after 3 reeboots and a battery removal no luck.
Seriously Nokia, WHY??!! You could have made Symbian better, now you're off playing with windows while Nokia loyalists who have Symbian Belle are left with the short end of the stick. I'm going to get an Android after this.

Re: Nokia C7 - Contacts Lost

Some of you mentioned above that they were setting up the exchange when it all happened - I assume it was the microsoft exchange active sync. If so then the problem was definetely caused by this mail synchronising client. I set up my corporate mailbox on my phone, it did ask me if I want to delete my contacts and replace them with the outlook contacts - which I answered NO. But after the setting up my contacts were gone and instead I have 4 totally useless contacts. Thank you Nokia, thank you Microsoft. Why would I ever want to use my contacts retrived from my outlook which is mostly used at work?? I definetely answered no for deleting my contacts and still my phone book is gone. It was either a bug, or I am as stupid as hell.
