Extract And Recover Lost Contacts From iTunes Backup To iPhone

By | August 3, 2015


Hello, I have a problem with my iPhone. All my contacts have been deleted from my phone and from my iCloud account. It’s the second time this happens and i didn’t do anything to trigger this. I downloaded a backup extracting software and opened the last backup made. (For some reason, all my older backups were also gone from itunes. So i had only the one that was made when i plugged my phone to the computer) The backup extractor was able to see all the contacts. But for some reason if i restore my iPhone from that backup, my contacts are still not showing. Some help would be great as I am quite stuck. Thank you. iPhone 5S.
