I've already restored it to factory settings, what else can I try?
Suddenly my iPhone has lost touch with all my contacts. I can go to Contacts list and see all the names, but attempting to open any of them results in an empty screen except their name. The phone app just show numbers where it had names. I've restarted, reset and restored to factory settings but nothing's helped.
I speak from experience. I had my laptop stolen last year. I had Undercover installed, and the Firmware password enabled and a basic Guest account setup.

I was wondering if it would be possible for the iPhone to operate as a wireless keyboard and trackpad for a mac. They keyboard would be in it's current position, with the screen area above for trackpad and mouse buttons.
How come there's not junk mail folder on iPhone? Mobile Me should sync up those rules and preferences too.
Having just jumped on the iPhone bandwagon - and an avid Apple fanboy for nearly 20 years now - I have to say there's a fundamental shortcoming that really bothers me. Not cut & paste, not global search (although each are sorely missing). But if I don't happen to hear the sound of an incoming message - voicemail, email or SMS - I have no idea one is waiting unless I press 'HOME' and the 'SLIDE'. Just to check. I could tell on my old Sidekick II because although the...
