    Hey folks,

    I lost all the contacts on my phone. I made the switch back to a flip phone and tried to backup all my contacts on my iPhone so I could look at them later. Technology struck again and I am left without numbers.

    If you had my number, please contact me via this thread or PM. If you wanted exchange numbers anyhow, go ahead and let me know. If you are taking this as an opportunity to be scot free from talking to me, then go ahead and rejoice.

    I'm also on Facebook until I grow weary of it again. https://www.facebook.com/johnathan.allen.9809

    Apple runs a fenced off ecosystem.

    When the backup was performed, it included my contacts. Unfortunately, that ecosystem had an imbalance in the food chain and ate them.

    You switched to a phone that has no numbers?!

    Sadly... no.
    Yeah, it's ridiculous! That smug sales rep told me "the future is here" and handed me the flip phone (even spelled like phlip phone, so I thought it was kool). I should have been more skeptical about a cellphone store out of the back of a van.

    He did sell me a car stereo and a set of speakers for cheap though.

    If it went into the cloud, it's possible that Apple may have a backup registered copy/printout of your contact list. It might be worth calling them to see if that's the case. I'm not saying it will work out that way, but it might be worth a shot.

    On a better note, I've got your number so I'll stay in touch...:)

    I don’t think we ought to speculate about Johnathan’s contacts’ salvation here.
