So, I have my iPhone 4S with iOS5. I don't plug it into my computer often (I don't think I plugged it in since I got it), but I did plug it in today and I lost all of my contacts. I don't know if it was something I pressed, or it just felt like misbehaving, but nonetheless I went to right click the device and pressed restore. It didn't work.
So now, I'm stuck with a couple of questions:
Is there any way to restore these contacts? (I remember I deleted pictures off of my Android Phone once and the software recuvva from piriform helped me out)
Don't my contacts save to iCloud? (Forums online say that iCloud doesn't back up contacts, but on Apples website it sure does seem like it does)
Is there anything I should do to make sure my contacts back up? (I really don't want to resort to downloading any extra apps. I feel as though my email or icloud should be able to handle this)
How do I even know if iCloud is working? (I'm not entirely sure I set it up)
Plus any other tips you might have for me.
