Lost contacts on iPhone after iOS 7 update ?
After doing the iOS 7 update and the iTunes update for my iPhone 4S I realized that i had no contacts or photos. Please help.

to get a major redesign, including a complete overhaul to the appearance
of classic Apple apps like Calendar or Email. As an iPhone user, I can’
find any reason that doesn’t upgrade iOS 7. But at the same time, if
you do not backup iPhone, you will lose iPhone data after iOS 7 update,

iOS device (recently supports iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone

provides Windows and Mac users simple and effective ways to recover lost contacts on iPhone.
