First, you need to check whether Contacts syncing is enabled or not. If it isn’t enabled, enable it and if it is already enabled, disable it and then enable it again. Here’s how you can check this: Go to Settings > Accounts and tap on your Google account.
Restore contacts from backups
- Open your phone’s Settings app.
- Tap Google.
- Tap Set up & restore.
- Tap Restore contacts.
- If you have multiple Google Accounts, to choose which account’s contacts to restore, tap From account.
- Tap the phone with the contacts to copy.
The first thing to do is to check your Contacts app and see if all the contacts are displayed there. Still in the contacts app, locate the three vertical dots on the top-right of the screen and click on it. It will take you to the Contact Settings menu. Select the settings option and tap on Contacts.
Suddenly, all of your contacts are gone from Google and your phone. This happens more than you’d think, and it is largely because too many applications make it easy to set your empty smartphone address book to overwrite your up-to-date Google Contacts list, rather than the other way around.
How can I get back a deleted number?
Scroll down to the Contacts section and open Contacts by tapping on the entry or clicking the Open button. You can also just go directly to Google Contacts. You will now see a list of all contacts saved to your Google account. Open the side menu and select Trash to recover any numbers you’ve recently deleted.
- Go to “Settings”.
- Tap on “Accounts and backup”.
- Click on “Backup and restore”.
- Select the “Restore data” option.
- Choose “Contacts (Samsung account)” and other files you want to restore.
- Hit on “Restore Now ” to save the backed up contacts to your Samsung phone.
From your Android device, head over to the app drawer and open up your Contacts app. Tap the three vertical dots at the top-right corner of the screen to go to the Settings menu of the Contacts app. Tap the Settings option and then hit Contacts. Select the Contacts to display option.
Go to Settings > Accounts and tap on your Google account. Tap on Account sync and look for Contacts. Now, enable the toggle next to Contacts and if it’s already on, turn it off and on again.
The most common cause of losing your contacts is from upgrading your mobile’s operating system. Whether your phone runs on iOS, Android or Nokia’s Symbian, the manufacturer will send out intermittent software updates to refresh the phone with the latest features.
