I lost all of my contacts from my new iPhone today…Well, I tried merging the contacts with iCloud from my old phone to the new one… After that, none of the contacts showed up on my contacts list… So I went to the iCloud settings and turned off the contacts button… It asked whether to keep the already backed up contacts or delete them… I accidentally pressed delete the contacts…Now, none of my contacts are there on my old iPhone nor the new one… I went to icloud.com to check, and it was empty there as well…It seems as though I don’t have an iTunes back up as well since I just checked on my computer…I really need all those contacts… Please help me someone, with genuine support and solution…Thanks.
The above was extracted from Apple community and in short, this user lost all his contacts when he tended to merge contacts with iCloud, he just accidentally press “Deleted From My iPhone”. Quite pathetic. Have you ever lost all your contacts just because of such accidents? I have operated my iPad mini according to the description of the user. I lost all contacts from my iPad, but when I use iFonebox to scan those lost contacts, luckily, I found that all lost contacts are there. So what is iFonebox?
