    Default Help! deleted contact - where is it?

    I synced my phone up to my laptop. So then I had ALL my address book contacts on my phone. I promptly started deleting the ones I didn't want on my phone including a fairly important contact that had lots of extra info that I REALLY need.
    Then I plugged my phone back into my laptop and it synced back to the computer and deleted off the computer address book all the contacts I'd deleted off my phone - including my really important one!!!!

    Yes, I'm dumb!!! :o But I didn't know it would do this. So where can I find my lost contacts? I looked in trash but they weren't there.

    You could try this from one of your backups:
