To erase the contacts from your phone, login to your My Contacts Backup account, click the "Lost Phone" link at the top of the page and follow the instructions provided. If your service is active and your phone is powered on, within a good coverage area and the erase function isn’t manually interrupted, this will remove your contacts from your phone.

Restore Troubleshooting

None of my contacts were restored.

- Check the Web site to see that all contacts are set to synchronize with phone state (noted by blue phone icon preceding the contact name). If not, select the contacts name and press “Add To Phone” button and retry the restore.

- If you changed your phone number, you will need to contact 1-888-944-9400 for assistance transferring your contacts to your new phone.

Not all of my contacts were transferred.

- Check that all of your contacts have a name and one of the following numbers work, home, or mobile phone. Often a phone will not allow a contact to be entered if it does not have a name and one of those common phone number fields. You can view your contacts by logging in to My Contacts Backup Web site.
