You have a few options. Restore from backup to another iPhone. If you do not have access to another iPhone, but have a backup file through iTunes locally on your computer, there are applications that can process those backup files. You may have success in browsing through them. If you were using iCloud, then your contacts may have been syncing there. Login ...

At some point somebody used your Apple ID on one of their devices (either OSX or iOS), or their Apple ID on one of your devices. Or, somebody might have connected your or their iPhone in your or their iTunes in the past. And things got mixed up. If you don't have a local iTunes backup, there's not too much you can do to recover. And if you have a local ...

You have a backup - that's good, and it's got valid data which is even better. First, I suggest taking a quick backup of your contacts as they stand right now. It might not be required, but in case you mess up the restore, or even if you subsequently realise you now have recent updates missing, it's wise to have a safe copy. Firstly, take a fresh Time ...

In Settings, visit "Mail, Contacts Calendars." Scroll down and select "Fetch New Data." Then, on that screen, temporarily turn on "Push," and then make sure iCloud is also set to push, so that new data is pushed from the server automatically whenever possible.

I tried everything apple suggests on their website several times (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204150), but nothing worked. Then I tried turning on Gmail contacts from anther account ...

This isn't a feature in iOS 8 or iOS 9. If you don't want a new number to be categorized as "home" you need to tap and change it. Luckily, third party apps can and do provide more customized interfaces to your contact database. I would start with a tool like Interact for setting up a more flexible default contact addition interface as well as extending ...

I have been having this same problem and as I go through this thread I found that I could answer yes to everything, but the problem persisted. I ended up opening the Contacts page on my Mac and while the contacts I needed were in "All Contacts" they were not in the "On My Mac" so I highlighted them all under "All Contacts" and did a drag and drop into "On ...
