after spending hours worrying about losing ALL my contacts
I finally searched for the right thing
and found out it is SO easy.
this is where you go if you ever experience any problems with gmail,
it is ABOUT.COM
of course, I knew there must be a way to do this, but trying to get responses from Google
is impossible as they only communicate via one of there message boards...
takes a hideously long time.
but, restoring your contact list must be done within 30 days or it will be gone forever !
I love every single one of you who phoned, emailed and/or left comments
you knew I wouldn't be in the Phillipines, didn't you ?
