Accidentally deleting contacts on the iPhone
Hi, the other day for some reason i lost all my contacts on my
IPhone 5. I have search everywhere i can think of to find a way to
recover them but nothing worked. So can anyone please tell me how i can
recover my contacts? I can’t use ITunes because i don't have the backup.
I even downloaded software that said it could recover my contacts
without using ITunes but that didn't work either. So if there is anyone
out there that can tell me how i can recover deleted contacts from iPhone 5, please tell me. Thanks.
Lost contacts on iPhone and haven’t made a backup before? The best
way is using an iPhone Data Recovery program. iPhone Data Recovery can
recover any data shot with your iDevice, contacts, SMS, call records,
memos and calendars as long as you synced your device with iTunes
before, so that you can get on with your digital life. How does it work?
Here are the steps of how to recover deleted contacts from iPhone without backup
Step 1: Choose the recovery mode.
Firstly, you need to download iPhone data recovery tool and install it
on the computer. Connect iPhone with computer. After launch this
program and select “Recover Data from iOS Device” as recovery mode.
Step 2: Scan for lost contacts.
iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S users, click “Start Scan” to scan for lost files directly.
iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users, need to enter dfu mode to scan. Follow these tips to enter DFU recovery mode:
1) Hold your device and click "Start" in the pop-up window.
2) Hold both "Power" and "Home" buttons for 10 seconds.
3) Release the “Power” button but not the "Home" button after 10
seconds. Release "Home" button after another 10 seconds. Then you'll be
told that you've successfully entered DFU mode.
Now wait when iPhone Data Recovery is automatically scanning your iPhone for lost or deleted data files
Step 3: Preview and restore deleted contacts on iPhone
