Hello fellow Samsung users,
I am having an issue with my contacts. Lost almost half of them. Does anyone know how to recover them please? And I tried Google sync, contacts merge, restarting, I'd say importing but I can't find the vcf file. Is there anyone else having the same issue?

How to recover them.

Check the Contacts Trash.
 Contacts-> Hamburger Menu in upper left/ right (three dots) ->Trash ->Select one contact then click All.

Just got off the phone with Google apparently it's a known issue and they are still trying to figure it out

Same here - ATT user all contacts are still in my Google account but messenger seems to only be looking at Samsung account which is NOT where I store contacts...

This is a terrible problem
