Recover LG Text Messages and Contacts

Edited by Eng

Erased contacts can be restored because your deletion doesn't have them wiped right away. In fact, the space occupied by the erased ones is only marked as usable. Not until new contacts are received to overwrite them will they stay there as well. Your contact information can either be stored in your SIM card or your phone's internal memory. If it's the former, as long as the card is kept intact and the deleted data haven't been overwritten, you can have them recovered. If it's the latter, make sure that you have no more new data in and it remains what it was like the moment the data were erased. Then turn to Coolmuster Lab.Phone for Android (for Windows 8/7/XP/Vista) or Coolmuster Lab.Phone for Android (Mac) (OS X 10.9 or later), a powerful and useful tool for help.
