Learning two ways to recover contacts from iPhone 5S/5/4S/4/3GS with few simple steps.

iOS Update cause lost Contacts on iPhone
I buy a new iPhone 5 last week, I am importing contacts from SIM card to the iPhone 5, all those contacts including my new friends and new business partners.

In addition, if I accident deleted contacts on iPhone, are there any way to recover iPhone 5S contacts when I deleted them.

Lost contacts on iPhone and haven’t made a backup before? The best way is using an iPhone Data Recovery program. iPhone Data Recovery can recover any data shot with your iDevice, contacts, SMS, call records, memos and calendars as long as you synced your device with iTunes before, so that you can get on with your digital life. How does it work?

Here are the steps of how to recover deleted contacts from iPhone without backup

Step 1: Choose the recovery mode.
Firstly, you need to download iPhone data recovery tool and install it on the computer. Connect iPhone with computer. After launch this program and select “Recover Data from iOS Device” as recovery mode.

Step 2: Scan for lost contacts.
iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S users, click “Start Scan” to scan for lost files directly.
