So yeah I thought they were all backed up to my Google accounts but the thing is it seems like it started with my Wi-Fi I had to call my AT&t company and I don't know man it seems like I had to reset my password for my Gmail couple times and then but now I kept all my photos and everything thank God but all my contacts are gone

Okay if you're using Google going to settings going to accounts pick the Google account that you have for Gmail touch sync settings and make sure contacts are on if it's been on then sync now it should restore your contacts
I have Verizon so I back my contacts up for free in the Verizon cloud

Man I done all that already I even recovered an old gmail that I haven't had in like a year I recovered it somehow last night didn't know the password but I had another Gmail and it worked one I think the reason I didn't lose like my all my pictures and everything is because I get in my phone through my phone print and that help me out last night because every time I would change my password on my Gmail it's like somebody would change it right back it's like somebody was on my phone the same time I was

Yeah that seems crazy if someone knew your Gmail email and knew your password they could change the password but if you changed it they would have to know the new password for they could change it again and most the time you get an alert from Gmail saying somebody's signed into your account on a device

And I'm just going to ask you a point blank question like my Aunt pays my Wi-Fi and I'm just going to keep it real she can look at the camera on her husband's phone but she would have no reason to you know do that like with me but how easy would it be for someone to like get in through Wi-Fi to get to your phone or something?
