How to Recover Deleted Phone Numbers from Android

By Emily Watson, Wednesday, June 24, 2015

There is a common situation that leads to contact loss and requests you to recover deleted phone numbers from Android.

Sometimes we add contacts into a same group for convenient manage. And then it allows us to group send the same message or email in just one click. However, it is more likely to delete all the contacts by one wrong click. Actually, what you want to do is deleting the group and adding the member to another group rather than both the group and group members. And you need to hit "Group only" other than "Group and group members". In this way, you lose the phone numbers of the whole group. To make things worse, you don't have a backup.

Well, to get back phone numbers of this group, FonePaw Android Data Recovery is recommended. It is the efficient alternative solutions to costly and time-consuming data recovery services. Users are allowed to get back deleted Android telephone numbers in several steps and clicks. First of all,  please notice that you should stop using the phone once a delete is performed. Or data will be overwritten and everything will be in vain.
