Recovering lost iPhone contacts

ASE Web Design - IPhone ContactsSo I was setting up family sharing for my kids and somehow I ended up having all of my contacts in my iPhone disappear.

Now, I love my iPhone and have had several different versions but I haven’t ever had this situation happen. Obviously, somewhere along the line I did something that resulted in a disconnect from my phone to my iCloud account.

Here’s how I fixed it:

First, I went to iCloud and checked to make sure my contacts were still there.


1. Go to Settings >> scroll down to iCloud
2. Make sure you’re logged in with your iCloud account
3. Below that you’ll see a Contacts option
4. Turn that off ( and select DELETE – only removes contacts that are on the iPhone itself )

Then toggle the Contacts back on

and my contacts were showing on my phone.

And there you have it. Don’t really know why they disappeared in the first place but at least I know how to retrieve them.
