The story started in November 2019, I bought a new IPhone in exchange of the earlier one. When I signed in with my Apple ID in new phone I didn’t get all my contacts, so it seemed to me that after the last backup I saved many more contacts and didn’t take their backup that’s why those new contacts weren’t appearing when I signed in and restored.

However, I started saving new contacts as I was using my new phone, I saved many contacts (somehwhere around 45-50) but few days earlier I found that some of those (I don’t know if all) contacts have disappeared! It’s a little spooky but it’s a loss to me, I really need those contacts back.

Please suggest me something.

  • How do you store/sync your contacts, iCloud/Google/something else? – nohillside May 10 '20 at 6:15
  • @nonhillside Both iCloud and Google. – Knight wants Loong back May 10 '20 at 6:17
  • Can you log in to either service via your browser and check whether the missing contacts are still there? – nohillside May 10 '20 at 7:15
  • @nohillside I have checked in both of them but they are not there. – Knight wants Loong back May 10 '20 at 10:26
  • When I go to Settings-> Contacts -> Deafult Account, I couldn’t find iCloud in it. There are just two options: Gmail, On my phone. – Knight wants Loong back May 10 '20 at 13:00

I think you should sign into the site of iCloud to view all the contacts every time you saved contacts.

  • They aren’t appearing there. When I save a new contact and I go to iclouds to check whether they have been stored there,I cannot find them. – Knight wants Loong back May 13 '20 at 11:44
