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. Does this have to do with my apple ID being changed to the MobileMe email address?
I upgraded my iPhone 4 from iOS4 to iOS5.1 last night while connected to iTunes. My contacts list became empty when the phone came back on.
I already tried to retrieve the contacts through the following methods:Open a recent Text Message, tap "Contact" and edit.Turn off and on icloud.Import from SIM.Reset the phone and re-sync.Restore from backup. All previous backups from iOS4 are inaccessible.I do not have the contacts list backed up on Windows/Outlook/Google/etc. I was naive to put my trust in Apple.
The contacts are not on icloud.com either.
This is utterly ridiculous. There was no warning about losing contacts. I followed the directions on iTunes and on the phone. My phone is NOT jailbroken. It's Apple hardware and Apple software, I do not see how this happened other than because of a fault on Apple's part. After months of complaints from consumers, there was no warning or fix to this problem that has been well known to Apple. I already wasted more than 4 hours trying to find a way to get the contacts list back to no avail.
Is there a way to get my contacts back or are they lost forever?
so I backup my phone , restore it and the update it, but now after I restore my iphone all the info from my backup all my contacts are lost I tryied to do all those thing with the iCloud (aint worked for me :S) , and i also tried to sync my contacts from the outlook , aint worked either =[
I dont know what to do anymore and those contacts are relly importent to me ...
I updated through my phone not itunes to 5.1 everything worked and is fine except it deleted all my contacts in my contact list. The weird thing is that in my txts the names are there and if you hit contacts at the top of the txt it shows all the info of the contact like id be looking at it in my contact list.
Updated my iphone last night and lost 800 of my phone numbers. How can I retrieve my lost contacts. I back up my computer with carbonite and tried to put the folder back into itunes but when I resync they did not show up.
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.
I updated my I Phone 4 to the os 5.1.1 but lost all of my contacts. I believe it should still be stored in my laptop Apple file but don't know how to restore. I only see the restore option to the factory settings. I have never used the I Cloud.
My iphone4 stucked in recovery mode after updating to iOS5.1 and now it has been restored but it says there is no simcard installed! Now my iphone is useless and I am so depress because it is 4mons.old :( I dont know where to repair it or should apple carry the responsible to replace it.
tried to download photos. Prompted to update phone. Prompted to download Back up doc. Did backup successfully. When Restored - all of my contacts have gone !! hen I check thro my text messages I can find contacts beginning with A B C L and M.
I updated to iOS5.1 and am noticing high battery drainage. Battery 100% charged can not last the entire day.Previously it was not so. No change in usage habits!! Is it some reported bug in iOS5.1. I updated to it directly while on iOS 5.0
