Have you tried going into the settings within your phone book and making sure that it's set to show contacts saved to wherever you had them saved.

I recieved the update and Samsung stated in the update description that it was a stability and performance update so it shouldn't have screwed up your contacts at all

I do not see that option in the phonebook settings. I will keep looking.

But thank you for letting me know what the update was.

AT&T has released a list of the changes found in this build:

Battery performance enhancement
HD Voice enhancement
Screen enhancements
Carrier Message enhancement
Screen rotation enhancement
Power key press time from .5 sec to 1.5 sec
Other various performance enhancements

The update from AT&T, 237 MB (236.92 MB to be precise), is exactly the same size as Koodo's. Samsung has not released an official changelog for this update, so this would make it difficult to figure out what this update actually did. Usually an update will list what changes will be made to the device. (Image below is for illustrative purposes only).

I always take a screenshot of the changes before updating and here's the one from the update we're talking about.
