For Android phone users, there is no need to worry. Because apparently there are several ways that can be used to restore deleted phone contacts.
Can be used for Samsung, OPPO, Vivo, Lenovo, ASUS, and others. Let’s discuss.
1. First Check Contact Settings
We can save phone contacts in several places. Starting from being able to be stored in the email (Google account), SIM card, and internal memory.
There are people who mistakenly think that the contacts on their cellphones have been deleted, but that’s not the case.
Sometimes, there could be settings that have changed on the cellphone, thus hiding some of the existing contacts.
Please follow these steps for the solution:
Step 1: Open the Contacts app on your phone.
Step 2: Next, tap on the three-dot button present at the top right of the contacts app.
Step 3: Then select Settings.
Step 4: Finally, please reset contact settings.
- For example Show SIM Contacts
- Uncheck Hide Incomplete Numbers
- And other settings in case it affects this
Step 5: Then, after the previous step, the contacts that you thought were deleted will reappear.
This problem of missing or not appearing contacts, I have actually discussed in more depth in another article with 7 tips and solutions.
2. Recover Deleted Contacts with Apps
One of the easiest ways to restore deleted contacts on an Android phone is to use an application.
Install the Restore Contacts application on the Playstore, open the application, then restore the desired contacts.
This method can be done if the contact was recently deleted. It is guaranteed that contact data will be returned complete, including data on names, addresses, and the like if they previously existed.
The complete steps:
Step 1: First install the Restore Contact application from Google Playstore ( size is only about 2MB).
Step 2: Then please open the application.
Step 3: Then you will see the deleted contact data there.
Step 4: Here you just have to return it as usual.
- You can press the desired contact, then restore.
- Or it could be done manually, namely re-registering the number and contact name listed there.
Oh yes, if you are confused about a contact that only has a number listed (without a name), chances are you didn’t type the name on the contact when it was deleted.
3. How to Restore Deleted Phone Contacts Through Google Contacts
One of the contact data will be stored in a Google account. Well, we can open the data through a page called Google Contact.
Interestingly, in Google Contacts there is a feature that can revert changes to contacts.
With this feature, deleted contacts will be safer and can be recovered.
Step 1: First, open the Google Contact page on a computer or laptop.
Step 2: On the right side top > click on the setting icon > Then press the Undo Changes button again.
Step 3: Just set the contact recovery time, to when the contact has not been deleted.
For example, my contact data was deleted today, then I set the restore contact settings to yesterday.
In this way, contacts that were lost because they were deleted on Android can be restored.
But it’s not finished yet, because we need to resynchronize it first. The goal, so that contact data can be read by phone.
- Go to Android Settings.
- Go to the Account menu, then go to Google Account.
- Tap the menu button (at the bottom), then tap Sync now.
Wait for the process to finish. If so, open the contacts application again to view the deleted contacts earlier.
Please check, whether this method is effective or not.
