I deleted some contacts of my old colleagues on my Android phone by mistake. I have no idea how to recover deleted contacts. Is it possible to recover deleted contacts from android? I'm not a professor of Android phone and high-tech software. If you have any ways, would you describe the process simply? Thanks a lot! --Sophie
I am sure many people have the similar annoyance that delete some important contacts of their mobile phone on accident and find it impossible to recover them. Here comes a useful recovery tool--Android Data Recovery which enables you to recover lost, deleted, formatted and corrupted contacts from Android devices.
Firstly, assure that your contacts are not yet overwritten with new data. Then download a version of Android Data Recovery from below and install it on your computer and follow the steps below to restore contacts on your Android device.
Step 1 Run the software & Connect phone to PC
Run the program on your computer. Connect your Android phone to your computer via USB cable. Then Tap "Data Recovery" to start the contacts recovery process.
Step 2 Enable USB debugging mode on Android Phone
After connect your mobile phone to your computer, you need to enable your phone into USB debugging mode. Just need several simple steps as follows(operating steps are depended on the version of your Android system).
For Android 2.3 or earlier:
Tap "Settings" > "Applications" > "Development" > "USB debugging"
For Android 3.0 to 4.1:
Tap "Settings" > "Developer options" > "USB debugging"
For Android 4.2 or newer:
Tap "Settings" > "About Phone" > "Build number" for several times until getting a note "You are under developer mode" > Back to "Settings" > click "Developer options" > check "USB debugging".
Note: Before enabling USB debugging mode, avoid disconnecting your phone from your computer.
To identify your device, you need to click "Start" in the window of your computer screen to analyze it. Then, a pop-up window from Superuser Request will appear on your phone to ask for your permission. Click "Allow" > "Remember". Then click "Start" on the window of the program and it begins scanning your device now.
Step 4 Preview & Recover contacts from android
After scanning, you can choose "Contacts" on the left side and preview all the contents in it. You can watch them after saving them on your computer. Mark those you want and click "Recover".
Note: To easily restore deleted contacts in android, you can click the button at the top of the window to merely display your lost data of your phone.
