Today, almost all of my contacts have suddenly disappeared from my iPhone 6 with iOS 9.1. I can see only phone numbers, but when I want to add a contact when creating a new message (sms, iMessage) I can see all contacts, that is strange. Everywhere else are only numbers (contact, call history, etc.). The contacts are stored on Microsoft account which is set to default and I had no problems until now. I even didn't change any settings and it happened all of sudden. It is really frustrating, I didn't change any settings and this has happened. Could someone help me please?
