You can retrieve your contacts with a recovery app like recuva for Windows and data recovery for Mac.
The app will prompt you to browse for the folder where contacts are stored, but before doing so make sure all other apps on your device are closed. Your recovered contacts will be synced automatically with Apple or Android devices if it’s open in the background.

The easiest way to get them back is by downloading the backup onto a computer and restoring it onto the iPhone. Refer to Apple’s website for further guidance: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202039

Why did you delete my contact list?

The user deleted their contact list because they want to clean up or delete all of the contacts within it.
There are several reasons why people will stop using their phone, delete old contacts and start afresh with new opportunities. The first, most obvious reason is that the battery on their phone has died and cannot be recharged anymore – there’s nothing to do but buy a new one. A less common but also valid reason is that they would like to return an unwanted gift. Another potential cause could be the need for something better than what they already have; this person may not think that Android or iOS are capable enough for them, so they switch platforms altogether (for instance). Regardless of the reasoning behind it, deleting contacts may seem like an almost impossible task to reverse. This is not necessarily true, however, thanks to the hard work of some very talented developers.

What if I accidentally delete my contacts?

If you deleted your contacts and you’re in a hurry to restore them, don’t bother restoring them from the backup. Instead, just go ahead and set up a new one through iCloud or Gmail. You can then transfer in all your contacts in half the time it would take if they were already backed-up on the phone…or even running an operating system like Windows Phone which has no such feature.

What are some ways to back up my iPhone contacts?

There are several “backup” programs out there for your iPhone contacts. However, backups are not 100% reliable since one can’t be guaranteed that they will run on a computer which has never or is no longer associated with the phone in any way shape or form. Since Apple doesn’t support anything beyond an iTunes backup, you’re best bet would be iCloud if it’s set up on the phone. If you do have iTunes set up though, then it can make an encrypted copy of all your contact information which you can restore later if need be…provided the computer still exists and/or isn’t locked down by anti-theft software.

Is there a way to get back deleted contacts?

Unfortunately, contacts are an essential part of your phone’s data. They store all of the information you need to remain in contact with friends, family and professional contacts alike. Because deleting them can pose a threat to your livelihood or personal welfare, they’re usually “locked” so that they can’t be overwritten at will with other data on the phone’s memory card.

That being said, with the right software tools formatting your cell phone or mobile device correctly could restore at least some deleted contacts without harming any existing files on it. Of course, backing up important contact information before attempting this is always advisable just in case things go wrong for any reason!
