I have updated to os 5 today. Took all the precautions beforehand pressing sync and backing up etc. After the update I have lost all my contacts and apps and how they were arranged on the home screen. Stangely, I still have all my text messages. I'm not bothered about my apps or music they can be purchased again but is there any way of getting my contacts back? I have spent 3+ hours trying many of the options that other have used after a google search but they don't work.

How to retrieve my lost music. My laptop that I had all of my music on was ruined a leak in my ceiling. So after that I pretty much only downloaded songs to my phone. I just updated my phone and lost all of my music. It said that it was backing up my phone so I thought it was putting my music in a file on my new computer. I did a search and it appears to be no music at all. Does anyone know how to remedy this matter?

I just updated to the ios5 and have lost many of my apps and I'm also having trouble installing new apps - keep getting the message that I Must use the Canadian store, even though I came through the link on the Canada iTunes.

after updating to the 5 version for my iphone 4 the screen went blank, nothing would work and the itunes said error. tried again and same thing happened. couldn't bring my phone back to life so did a restore on it. that worked but lost everything and the itunes said if you do a restore it will bring back the contacts on it etc but no. All the apps have gone, my contacts, notebook etc.I have tried syncing back to the itunes to pick up the music again and it will only do 1 song, then says there is an error and won't upload anymore, it just freezes. I have deleted icloud thinking that might be the problem as it was updated and was added. but no change.
I installed the latest software update on my phone last night...only to discover that after I did I lost all my text messages from the past 3 months, along with all notes I had (which contained my mileage for work), and any pictures I have taken. I also lost all apps that I bought/downloaded in the last 3 months. I am now basically out money also for any apps that were purchased. How do I get all of that back? (the notes and pictures are the most important
