Once you unconsciously deleted your contacts on the Android phone, what should you do? No worry, if you recover the deleted contacts as soon as possible before they get overwritten. then the recovery rate can reach 100%.

Yes, we can recover deleted contacts by your method, but I think if you deleted your contacts for long time, if you don't have backup, you need one tool, it will deep scan your device, all deleted data will scanned out, then you can recover deleted contacts from Android.

When you delete or remove contacts on Android phone, they would be first moved to the trash bin and the device will mark these files as inactive. Actually, they still exist on your phone but are invisible and replaceable. Thus, you may depend on data recover program to get them back.

Mobikin Doctor for Android ,it has powerful scanning method to scan and retrieve deleted data on Android phone. It deserves a try
