    Lost all contacts on Sony Xperia T all of a sudden

    I am confused. I did not upgrade the phone and there wasnít even physical damage to the phone. All of a sudden I lost all the contacts on my new Sony Xperia T. I did not have a backup. Now I am in a fix. Is there any way to retrieve these contacts back? Can someone please help?

    If you have a backup in SD card, then we will retrieve easily by following:
    Main screen-->Phonebook-->Contacts-->Then Menu Button-->Backup Contacts (To backup-Creating .vcf file) -->Import contacts ( To import from vcf file).
    You can open this file with a text editor or notepad too to edit before restoring.

    But, I think if you have saved somewhere only, to make restore your contacts and otherwise not.

    Thanks

    NO!!! Not at all!!!

    there is no such way of retrieving your phone contacts!! but you may try this out

    there are some apps and websites available offering various methods and solutions, mostly they are useless and fake

    >>check whether you have stored the contacts in the phone memory or in the SIM card

    If you have stored it in the sim card, you can get it back as it is still stored in the SIM card

    From now onwards always back up ypur phone contacts manually before upgraduation or formatting

    Hmmm,
    my dear friend you have lost your contacts.usually it doesn't happen.
    And this is causing you a lot of difficulty.
    Well there is no need to worry if you have syncronised and backed up your phone with your pc.
    From there you can easily retrieve all the data,including your phone numbers.
    Hope you understand

    You may also get those if you have sync with Gmail or Yahoo!! contacts..
    You have to back up your contacts..
    Choose Menu
    **Go for Phonebook>>>Contacts
    **Choose Options
    **Choose Backup Contacts (Choose .vcf file)
    **Then click on Import contacts..
    Your contacts will be recovered in your phone..

    Re: Lost all contacts on Sony Xperia T all of a sudden

    I would like to tell you that its not possible to recover your contacts from your SIM card/phone once you have deleted/lost them from it .
    There is only one way to get back all your contacts again only if you have a backup of all your contacts into your phone or into your pc.

    If you do have the backup into your pc then just connect your phone with the pc and then open the software you use to connect your phone with the pc .
    There you must be having an option of backup .
    Just click there and click on restore backup .
    Then search or browse for the backup file on your pc and then click ok to install i back into your phone .

    Also i would like to suggest you not to use any 3rd party software or app for restoring your contacts .
    Using these type of apps or software can harm your phone in any way ..
    Try out these steps and also make sure to regularly take a backup of your phone's data.

    hello sir,

    i think that you have not lost all the contacts from your device.
    According to me you are facing the current issue in to your device due to the attack of the virus in to your device.

    So my suggestion to you is that you simply have to scan your device with a good antivirus.

    You can use any of the following antiviruses:::::::>>>>>>>>>>>>

    norton.

    Quick heal.

    Avast.

    Bit defender.

    Avira.

    Kesper sky.

    And so many other you will get from the market.

    So download any of the above and scan your device.

    Then restart your device.

    I am sure that you will got the solution.

    That's all.

    Thank you.

    download sony pc companion
    Connect phone when prompted
    Transfer New ( this thinks you are transferring contacts to a new phone)
    Follow instruction
    Disconnect the phone from the pc then reconnect
    Follow instructions
    This restored my sons contact after a software update wiped his out.
