Customer Question
I was recently locked...

I was recently locked out of my phone. Upon the return of usability, my contacts were restored with only their email address. How do I return my contacts to display their name and numbers? iPhone 7.

Technician's Assistant: How old is the phone?

Roughly 2 months.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I was locked out for 3 days. Usability was restored yesterday at an Apple store. No troubleshooting has been done.
