How to Recover Deleted Contacts from Rooted Samsung Mobile

By Emily Watson, Tuesday, June 23, 2015

"My Samsung phone was crammed with all kinds of data. So rooted it and intended to remove some useless apps. I tapped 'Settings' > 'Application manager' > 'All'. Then selected the application I want and press the 'Clear data'. During this process, I wrongly chose 'Contacts' > 'Clear data'. I tried several recovery tools to recover deleted contacts from rooted Samsung Mobile. But they didn't work since my Samsung phone has been rooted before. Any thoughts of recovering lost contacts from rooted Samsung?"
