So i've been playing with a Stable and Up-To-Date Custom ROM with my Ace-i (i won't say it so there will be no problem, but it is for personal use only)

i've tried to delete some .apk on the .zip file of the ROM and flash it, and so. but later on i experienced some crazy error or bug maybe. whenever i reboot my device safely, my SIM Contacts keep missing .. i think its being deleted .. it is saved in SIM Directory,

also i am shutting down and restarting my phone properly using the power button.

i also tried to reinstall a fresh, clean, copy of the ROM i use and still happens, anyone know why this odd problem happens ??

please help thank you

UPDATE: i reverted to Stock Ace-i GB ROM, as usual none of the contacts saved in my SIM Directory showed but after i added 1 contact, it all showed up. i'll try to reflash the rom and see if it will happen again. this is really really odd to happen

I think that time you are on custom kernel...

Next time before you flash a new rom, you can take a backup of your existing contacts. To do that go to Contacts>Contact Setting>Export to SD. You will get a .vcf file in SD Card. Once you have finished installing new rom, you can restore this backup by doing Contacts>Contact Setting>Import from SD Card and click on the .vcf file. Or your contacts are also synced with your google account. So whenever you log in to your google account, it will automatically sync you contacts back to your phone. Hope I Helped

no it's not that i didn't know that they are deleted after flashing .. my contacts are saved on my SIM Card Memory so either if i flash a new rom or factory reset they don't disappear .. the problem is, i discovered that they are still inside my Sim Card memory .. the only problem is, they won't appear on my contacts .. and everytime i add a new contact, it disappears after reboot ..

nonetheless, i'll just try using Cloud Contacts from now on,

You can use the google sync to save your contacts.
You see in an other device if your contacts is insite and you cant see it with your ace?

Lol it's quite simple. The entire contact is in your SIM card but for them to be displayed into your phone, you just have to import them. Go to Contacts>Contact Settings>Import from SIM card. That's it. It will import all the SIM contacts to your phone. You will be now able to see all your contacts. Hope I Helped

already did that, but it also shows "No Contacts" .. considering that when i plug the sim to an non-android device like asha, it reads all of my sim contacts, im telling you it is really really odd
