Hi, Don't know what happened. Overnight I woke up and all my whatsapp contacts disappeared. Meaning, I get all the previous chats with the bare phone number without the name of the person, and in my address book I get only the phone number without the whatsapp icon. What happened? What can I do to fix the problem? Thank you

thank you, it has "magically" been solved by itself by just adding again one of the contacts to the whatsapp contact list. And immediately it updated all the others. Wondered what happened though, however thx

Hi, same problem with me. Updating and re-installing is not helping. Even If I add a whatsapp contact it will not show or get deleted in some minutes from the whats app contact list.

WhatsApp contacts are exactly the same with your phone contacts, since WhatsApp syncs all your phone contacts to its contact list and these contacts are saved as your “WhatsApp contacts” in WhatsApp Messenger.

If your WhatsApp contacts are deleted only from WhatsApp contact list, you can sync your phone contacts to WhatsApp again.But if your contacts are directly deleted from your phone contact list, you might have to recover it from backup if you have, such as restoring from Google contact backup or local backup file.
Try to recover contacts from Android without backup by using MobiKin Doctor for Android.
