Difficulty: Difficulty
Equipments Required: The latest version of iTunes, PC or Mac, a USB cable
Time Required: Within 20 minutes
Previous Preparation Required: iTunes backup for iPhone contacts

Note:
  • 1. If you haven’t use iTunes to sync or transfer contacts from iPhone to computer before you lost contacts, then you would not have the contacts backup. Go directly to Section 1 if you are in this case.
  • 2. iTunes can only recover the previous contacts you backup before, which means you won’t retrieve the new contacts added to your device before loss. Moreover, you can’t view and check the contacts in iTunes.
how:
  • 1. Connect your iPhone to computer with the USB cable.
  • 2. Open iTunes if it doesn’t start automatically. iTunes will recognize your iPhone.

  • 4. Select the contacts you want and choose which program you want your contacts synced from. PC users can choose “Microsoft Outlook” or “Outlook Express”; Mac users select “Address Book”
  • 5. Click “Sync”. Don’t pull out your USB cable during the sync process.
  • 6. Click “Eject” when the sync is finished. Don’t remove your iPhone from computer without first ejecting it.
