How to Recover Deleted Android Contacts

Probably one of the most valuable things you can have on your Android device is your list of contacts. Everything from work, friends, family, etc. It’s terrible if all of them go missing at the same time.
It doesn’t matter if you have accidentally deleted your contacts, or if they were lost while you were rooting your Android device or doing any other kind of tweaking and tinkering.

Restoring Android contacts with Gmail
If your Android device is synced with your Google account, the odds of recovering missing contacts are definitively in your favor.

Gmail has a nifty feature, that allows you to restore a backup of all your contacts, which can date up to 30 days back. Once you have done this, you can re-sync your device with your Google account and get all your contacts back.

To restore a backup of your Gmail contacts, go to your inbox and select “Contacts” from the dropdown menu on your right hand side.

Once you see the list of your contacts (or not), click on “More” to get to the dropdown menu, where you need to select the option “Restore contacts…” or “Pulihkan Kontak”.

Now you should see this pop-up window, where you can select a backup, which can date back as far as 30 days. If this method worked for you, go ahead and re-sync your Google account on your Android device and you should be good to go. If it didn’t work, let’s explore some other options…
