I was closing all my unused running programs on my galaxy S3, and suddenly closed the contacts app. When I checked my contacts afterwards they were all gone. But when I checked my call logs, the corresponding name for each number showed for few seconds, and then disappeared as though all contacts were deleted from the phone.
Does that mean it is stored somewhere in the phone? I tried recovering from GMail, but unfortunately I had not sync'd my contacts initially. Please help to recover as they were all my office related contacts.

I have found an app for Android devices that uses Gmail, called "Backup to Gmail v.2.4.3". What I've seen so far is that my Call Logs, SMS & MMS files are backed up through Gmail then received as an email to my desktop, for each and every function I use on a daily basis.
What's more, please keep in mind that you should back up all your data all the time. I found another app that can backup the data between 2 devices. For example, it can backup the phone data from iPhone to Android.
