One of the scariest things that might drive you crazy is losing Contacts when you try to upgrade, sync, restore your iPhone. However, things have become easy with iCloud. While you’re old school, you’ll find iTunes to be a good solution even today. As long as you’ve got a backup of your contacts somewhere, you can restore from it on your iPhone and salvage the deleted or lost Contacts easily. Even if you don't have one, some iPhone contact recovery software like Jihosoft iPhone Data Recovery will help.

- Click on iPhone icon, bring up the Summary and check the date of "Latest Backup".
- Select "Restore Backup" – this will replace everything on your iPhone with data from the backup.
Restore Deleted Contacts from iCloud:
Of course, you may not have iTunes backups before. If you have enabled iCloud Contacts sync, in all probability, the lost contact should be still on your iCloud account. To check if this is true:
- Login to https://www.icloud.com with your Apple ID and password.
- Click on Contacts.
- Search your contacts to check if the deleted/lost contacts (from your iPhone) are still visible here.
If there they are, go to iPhone → "Setting" → "iCloud" and (if it turned off) turn on "Contacts" switch → tap "Merge". Later, iCloud will merge all contacts to your iPhone and the deleted ones should be back, too!
