    Question Rooting & Undelete

    Long story short, I've randomly 'lost' phone contacts & it's been more than 30 days so I can't use my gmail back-up list. Sprint can't/won't help me & from what I've read, the ONLY way to possible 'find/retrieve' these lost numbers, is to root my phone & use an "undelete" app. Before I proceed with attempting to root my phone, can anyone confirm if indeed this can or will work to find deleted phone contacts older than one month? Or, is there a better, faster or easier way...thanx for any info or insight anyone has to offer.

    You can log into your gmail account on a pc and they should be there also
    Or you looking for the contact history ?

    They're not in my gmail account anymore & i tried resetting back 30 days but no luck. I wish gmail would let undo/revert back more than 1 mos. So, do you know if there's anyway to find them on my phone sd card?

    I'm confused. Did you not sync your contacts with your Google account? Can't u go into settings-->accounts and choose to sync your contacts with google?

    I upgraded my phone back in Oct @ Sprint Store...they 'transferred' my contacts for me, however a few weeks ago I noticed I had random missing contacts/numbers etc. I went to my google (gmail) contacts & they were gone from there as well. So, apparently when they got mysteriously deleted somehow from my phone, they were also deleted from gmail contacts/backup, since my phone is synched to my email (gmail) acct. Is this making sense now? It's looking like I'm out of luck & I've even tried looking/searching online for specific Android software that can do undelete but most of it looks like it's for pictures.

    I'd happily pay to have this fixed/restored but am at a loss as to IF it can be and who can do it...I don't know anyone at CSI/NCIS! lol

    Do you have a old phone with them on it?
