How to Recovver Lost Contacts from iPhone 5C
“Before I could backup my iPhone 5C, I accidentally deleted the whole contact list on it. Now I can only find some of them from the call history, with no names. I used an Android phone before, erased the whole data and gave it to my sister. I can’t find my contacts anywhere now. I’ve called Apple, but still clueless. How can I recover the deleted contacts from my iPhone 5C? Do I have any chance now? Please let me know it if you have a clue. Thanks in advance.”
When you have ever synced your iPhone with iTunes or iCloud, it will be pretty easy to restore your contacts from the backup. Without a backup, you need to change a way: try to directly scan your iPhone and recover deleted contacts. This is the best way to get you out of the trouble. In fact, the deleted contacts are not gone immediately, unless they are overwritten by new data. So what you should pay attention is stop using your iPhone and perform the recovery ASAP.
