Lost contacts during sync

Just sync my 9550 to my macbook pro.    My contacts on my phone seemed to have been moved to a hidden location on the phone.   If I select a number which I have either called or have received, it gives me the option to "view contact". If I click on that choice, I find the original contact information.   However, if I go to the "contacts" icon and open it, there are no contact shown.  

My orginal contact are obviously still stored on the phone, but how do I get them back to the original contact list/icon?

Re: Lost contacts during sync

sometimes we end up with multiple contact lists, whether from a bad sync or restore, a software update or just plain bad luck.


They can be stored as *unknown* or as an email list
