Today I changed my mobile from contract to pay as you go, so I started the process of backing up my phone through the software, everything was synced and backed up, I also sync my contacts on the SIM hopefuly to the phone. After completing the switch over I did a restore, all my pictures, music etc all returned, the only thing that didn't was my contacts.I've tried putting my contract sim back in but Orange have made the switch so I cant get to any of my original contacts, have I lost them all? Any ideas welcome on how I can retrieve them.

I've seen many times how stuff has gone "missing" only to show up again after a phone reboot so let's give that a whirl.
While your phone is powered on, remove the battery then replace it a few seconds later. Hopefully that will bring them back again.
Post back with your results.

Just did an extractor on the .bbb file looks like I've lost them for good, for what ever reason the transfer took accross 2 contacts from my 'address book', obviously the contacts which were in my 'contacts' folder were on my SIM and never got taken across during the back-up. Really annoying.
