    Did you use Google or Gmail to backup your contacts?

    You should be able to retrieve all your contacts because contacts in google are usually synced to your email.

    Hey everyone,

    I have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Version 4.1.2.
    I recently deleted all my 500 photos by accident , and they were really important photos. I have tried many programs for photo recovery but they all require a rooted phone or a certain kind of model. My phone is a weird model that is not compatible with most programs so please do not give me a program unless it does not require rooting. (Doesn't rooting wipe all data anyway?)
    Anyways I am thinking about bringing my phone to a recovery place but I wanted to see if anyone could do it at home.

    Sorry for long post and thanks.

    P.S-What should I do to prevent overwriting the hidden data of my phone and photos? And what overwrites the data?

    Once you attempt to sync your phone to Gmail, it should ask you if you want to import contact from your Google account. That said, if you exported your contacts from your previous phone, then you will be able to retrieve them on any Android device. If not, you have one more choice, turn to use FonePaw Android Data Recovery, let it scan your contacts and select them to restore from Android phone.
