How to recover lost contacts from samsung galaxy s3?

I was closing all my unused running programs on my galaxy S3, and suddenly closed the contacts app. When I checked my contacts afterwards they were all gone. But when I checked my call logs, the corresponding name for each number showed for few seconds, and then disappeared as though all contacts were deleted from the phone.

Does that mean it is stored somewhere in the phone? I tried recovering from GMail, but unfortunately I had not sync'd my contacts initially. Please help to recover as they were all my office related contacts.

This video shows you how to recover lost contacts from your Samsung Android devices (samsung galaxy s3).

Hey, have you backed up your contacts to Google accounts, sim card or sd card. I think you can check them, if you have back up you can directly recover lost contacts from phone. However, if you don't have back up you have to use Android Data Recovery tools, learn how to do it from here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/topics/...alaxy.html

Accidentally deleted the whole contacts and photos when you clean up the much data on Galaxy Note. How can you get them back? Is there any solution to recover deleted content from Samsung Galaxy Note?


Hey there,
I have found an app for Android devices that uses Gmail, called "Backup to Gmail v.2.4.3". What I've seen so far is that my Call Logs, SMS & MMS files are backed up through Gmail then received as an email to my desktop, for each and every function I use on a daily basis.
What's more, please keep in mind that you should back up all your data all the time. I found another app that can backup the data between 2 devices. For example, it can backup the phone data from iPhone to Android.

Hey! What an coincident! Damn Sumsung!
I have been using iPhone but recently I want to try Sumsung then I broungt a new phone last month.
This contacts problem started last week and I tried many ways to fix it, it just goes like a circle.
I downloaded this from CNET and finally get them back!
Hope it works in your case, too.

The first thing you need to do is stop or add new data to Galaxy in order to avoid the overwriting. Then, with the assistant of Samsung Data Recovery, they can perform contacts recovery from Samsung Galaxy. Incidentally, this contacts recovery tool can enable you to directly scan your Samsung device and recover lost Contacts from Samsung Galaxy, as well as messages, photos and videos.
