How to recover contacts in your device

Your phone suddenly crushes and refuses to work? Each of us has experienced such an unpleasant situation at least once . If it is old model, then we don’t specifically regret it but it’s worse when it comes to your longtime contact numbers. Particularly since we’ve had them stored in our phone memory. We have to be aware that this situation can happen to each of us in the least expected moment. Fortunately there are several methods that allows us to recover contacts from our phone.

1. Forewarned is forearmed – backup on the SIM card

How to recover numbers from the phone? Of course the best way is to prevent their total loss. It is highly recommended to copy all of your contact to the SIM card. With the possible failure of our phone or smartphone, we save a lot of stress. We can also copy the contacts to our PC and we have many opportunities to do so for example when we transfer multimedia files via USB cable. We definitely advise against holding contacts only on the SIM card. In case of any damage we can lose all of our phone numbers, so it is always advisable to keep your data in at least two places.Hard Reset your device

2. Recover data by using Gmail Account

The owners of Android smartphones may synchronize with Gmail  account. As a result of this operation there is a possibility to export contacts to your own Google account (sometimes you may need to transfer contacts to the SD card at first). When there is a need, we can log in to Gmail and open the menu tab. Then from the available options we have to choose contacts. The whole list of our contacts should appear on the screen. However, in order to use this method, it is necessary to synchronize your device with your account Gmail. It is only available for Android devices.HardReset your device

3. The professional apps

Unfortunately, many of us neither keep a backup on the SIM card nor Android phone. Not to mention earlier sync with Gmail account. Our last possible option is to use one of the many commercially available programs that allow you to restore the lost contacts. One of them is the Deleted Contact Restore Backup, which allows you to restore deleted contacts manually. So if you accidentally had deleted important number, this tool can help you to recover them.
In case of a sudden failure and loss of many (and perhaps all) contacts you will need more advanced program, for example EaseUS MobiSaver for Android. It is a comprehensive tool that allows you to recover your lost contacts as a result of Android system failure, memory card error or other scenarios. It also allows you to restore other files such as movies, pictures, MP3 and SMS. You may also use this tool to backup your data on your computer. Factory Reset your device

Summary

Most of us usually back up all sorts of files such as photos, documents, MP3, etc. but not the contacts. The group of preventive people transfer phone numbers to the SIM card in order to create a backup (we definitely recommend it). But even if we don’t do it there is some hope to restore our lost data and contacts.
