    How to recover iphone lost contacts

    I gave my iphone to my little boy to let him play games on it. After that, I found out a few contacts were deleted without notice. Some of the deleted contacts are very important for me. I am wondering is there any way to get these contacts back?

    As I know, the deleted data still store in iPhone, if they are not be overwritten, you can restore iPhone data directly, but you need some iPhone Data Recovery programs for help, this way is for the user have no backup, if you backup your data with iTunes before, then recover deleted data from iPhone will be simply, , follow the step.Click the File menu and select Devices > Restore from Back up.
    Or
    Open the iOS device's Summary tab. There are two ways to access this:
    Click the device button in the upper right corner. (If viewing the iTunes Store, click the Library button in the upper right corner. The device button will then be visible.)
    From any view in iTunes, click the View menu and select Show Sidebar. Select your iOS device in iTunes under Devices.
    Just try the iStonsoft iPhone ipod ipad Data Recovery. Usefull app for iPhone users.

    When you decide to recover iPhone deleted data, iTunes may be the first choice which is free for us unless you find the free iPhone data recovery software.
    1. Connect your iPhone with iTune on computer
    2. Right-click or control-click on the iPhone icon under iDevice on iTunes
    3. Select "Restore from Backup" from the given options
    4. After it finishs, your contacts are back to your iPhone

    what you should pay attention that the methods above works only if you have made a backup for your contacts on iTunes and you can recover contacts from iPhone.

    iPhone contacts can get lost due to various reasons, such as failed jail break, iOS update, mistaken deletion etc. Once your contacts or other types of data get lost you'd better not use your iPhone to avoid space overwritten. Because once the lost data be overwritten, there is no way to recover them.

    An iPhone data recovery software can do this for you, as I know, PhoneRescue, can retrieve contacts from device, from iTunes and from iCloud.

    Hey, share a little tip with you.
    If you have sent messages with the contact that is deleted by your boy, you can do the following things to recover the contact.
    Go to "Messages" app and create a new text messages. Type the name of the contact and your iPhone will suggest the phone number of the contact. Then you can click "i" to create a new contact. So you get your deleted contact back.
    If you have not sent messages with the contact, you can only recover deleted contact on iPhone with iPhone Data recovery software.
