Hi and welcome to JustAnswer.com.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your issues.

Please try to reset your ipad. Hold the power (on/off) button on top side and home button at the SAME time for 12 seconds. Ignore the Turn off message. Wait until you see the white apple logo.

NickMacIT :

Then check your Contacts again.

NickMacIT :

it's the round button with white square

NickMacIT :

the button you press to exit an app

what do you press when you want to exit an app?

JACUSTOMER-jo1j0r6k- :

WSorry I was looking on the case. Pressed and held the power and the home at the same time for 12 sec. The "apple" came and went. Turned the power on again, pulled-up Contacts ..."no contents"

You can please resync your ipad to iTunes?

JACUSTOMER-jo1j0r6k- :

Means nothing to me. (sorry)

NickMacIT :

How did you get those contacts? setup with your email and synced them from Email?

I manually entered contacts from a book. I did see just before this event a list that I believe included contacts from my PC

NickMacIT :

So you did connect this pad to your PC?

NickMacIT :

NickMacIT :
