    Dear community

    Yesterday I bought a Sony Xperia T and I wanted to delete some pre-installed apps with Cleaner app. Unfortunantly, I also accidentally deleted the 'Contact' and 'Phone' app. And now I'm asking if there is a way to retrieve them back.

    I would be very appreciated if someone would help me to resolve this problem.

    I tried to set the phone into factory settings trough settings, back-up and reset, reset factory settings but still no result :/

    I downloaded the Contacts+ app but when I tried to create a new contact or to add a phone number of someone, it says that it couldn't find an application for this action.

    Welcome to the forums!
    I think the only way to bring those back is to reflash the original ROM.

    Being a Sony, I am not sure. You can try looking at the other threads here, or XDA might have something too.

    Its OK. A ROM is an OS version. Like Windows or iOS. Reflashing the ROM should bring back the apps you deleted.

    Yes and btw, where do I find the dialler since I don't have the Contact and Phone app? I searched on google where to find it but I only see links of the definition of dialler. I need to find it so I can write *#*#7378423#*#* to access the service menu.

    And what if I downgrade my Xperia? Maybe that should bring the contacts and phone app back? Or does it require an unlocked boot loader? Or maybe there is a ROM with locked bootloader? If I download custom ROM, will that bring those contacts and phone app back?

    Sorry, I'm a newbie of Android :/

    Well, any custom or stock ROM will bring those apps back. So if you can root, and flash a stock ROM that works too.
