Learn 12 Steps to Recover Lost Contacts on Android

You can usually sync your Android smartphone or tablet with your Google account to import and retrieve lost contacts on your previous Android. This sync may have a user-specified timeframe, but if you lose these contacts on your Google account, they may also disappear from your Android device.

However, Google provides tools to recover contacts from your account up to 30 days before the current date, similar to the restore point for Windows computers. This makes it possible not only to retrieve your contacts on your Google account, but also to recover lost contacts on Android. This requires both a computer logged in to your Google account and an Android OS device.

Note: This method is not for recovering lost contacts on the SIM chip. Your calendar contacts must be from your Google account.
