      If you don't have any backups on your PC, then you have to ask the third-party android recovery software for help.. Android Data Recovery is highly recommended here, It is designed to recover deleted/lost data from Android devices, as well as photos videos, call history etc. files.  How to recover deleted contacts

    • For Android Users to Get Back Deleted Contacts

      Step 1. Connect Android Phone to PC 
      Install Android Data Recovery for Android. A similar window can be seen when you launch the software. Connect the two by a USB cable and wait for your computer to recognize the devices. 

      Note: Do make sure that your Android is over 20% charged.

      Recover Lost Contacts

      Step 2. Enter USB Debugging 
      Tick USB debugging as the interface tells. This step is quite easy if you follow the procedure underneath. (The methods are different on different Android operating systems.) 

      1)For Android 5.0 or newer: Tap "Settings" > "About Phone" to tap "Build number" seven times for "You are now a developer!" signal. Then, move to "Settings" > "Developer options" to turn on "USB debugging"
      2) For Android 4.2 to 4.4.4: Move steps according to the methods for Android 5.0
      3) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter "Settings" > "Developer options" > Tick "USB debugging"
      4) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Go to "Settings" > "Applications" > "Development" > Tick "USB debugging"

      Retrieve Android Contacts

      After that, choose "Start" button on the next interface to go on.

      Step 3. Choose Kinds of Data and Which Mod to Scan with
      An interface will pop up for you to select what to recover. Since only contacts are to be retrieved, we tick "Contacts" in order to save time.

      Restore Deleted Contacts

      Step 4. Click to Analyze 
      Click Start to analyze your Android. Just wait a sec and a Superuser Request will show up on your phone. Allow it. Sometimes the box may pop up more than once, click "Allow" until it does not. And then, choose "Start" on your computer to begin scanning. 

      Retrieve Android Deleted Contacts  

      Step 5. Preview and Restore Deleted Contacts from Android
      The result will be shown in the window as below. You can highlight one of them to see the details of your missing contact or existing one. (The missing data are marked by red, while the existing data by black.) Choose the ones that you want to get back and save on your computer, and click "Recover".

      Restore Android Data

      That's all about how to recover deleted phone numbers. Below are some notes about contact recovery you need to keep in mind.

      1. Remember to do your backup regularly.
      2. Android Data Recovery can not only recover deleted contacts, but also do backups of screen-broken phones.
      3. It also applies to recovery after factory reset.
      4. You can see only deleted items by turn on the switch on the top.

    • Hello,

      After experiencing the similar Samsung phone deleted photo loss troubles, I had learned that you often could retrieve lost android phone files and contacts from its inner used memory card with phone data recovery freeware.

      Honestly, I did have tried several ones and got some successes last time, like:

      Recuva – free and fast, but, many retrieved files could not be used

      iCare Data Recovery Free – completely free and good to take most of my phone pictures and songs.

      PhotoRec-free, but, not easy to understand and grasp

      And you’d better also go search some ones and see which one of them was proper for your case.

      And this article may help you anyway:

      Hope my words can help you out anyway.

    • To recover deleted photo for vivo V9, first stop using it in case of data overwritten. Then you can use pro phone data recovery tool to get them back. After connecting vivo V9 to computer via usb cable, the tool will scan out the deleted photo and display them on program window. Then we can choose the photo we want to recover.
