When you scan in the HTC forum, you may find that many users complain that they sometimes delete Contacts from their HTC phones by mistake if they use some unfamiliar functions. If you are one of them, what can you do to recover lost phone numbers? There are several programs on the Internet but some of them only can recover videos or music, not Contacts. But with Android Data Recovery, you can easily rescue your deleted data. Before that, do not use your HTC, because your original data will be overwritten by the new information.
As a professional Android recovery program, Android Data Recovery will restore deleted Contacts, SMS, photos and audio from the most Android phone, such as HTC, Samsung, Sony, Motorola and Huawei.

After you download it, install and launch the software. Let's take HTC ONE M8 as an example.
Step 1. Link your HTC with Computer
Before starting, please check whether your phone battery is more than 20% charged. Then link your device with computer.
When you see this interface, please follow the steps to enable USB debugging to continue.
1. Enter "Settings"
2. Click "About" > "Software Information" > "More"
3. Tap "Build number" for several times until getting a note "You are under developer mode"
4. Back to "Settings"
5. Click "Developer options"
6. Check "USB debugging"
Now you can move to next step.
Step 2. Select Contacts to Scan Contacts on HTC
When this window appears, you can tick "Contacts" to allow the program scan contacts from your M8. If you decide to recover other data you can select corresponding data mode.
Step 3. Scan your Lost Contacts
When you click "Start", there is a request on your phone. Just click "Allow". Move to your desktop to click "Start" again. Android Data Recovery begins to browse your HTC ONE.
Step 4. Preview and Retrieve your Deleted Contacts from HTC ONE
After several minutes, the app shows the result on the interface. Click "Contacts" on the left category. Tick off some Contacts to preview detailed information on the right side. Mark them and then click "Recover".
Note: The undeleted Contacts are saved in .html, .csv and .vcf files on your computer.
Good! Android Data Recovery also allows you to preview and restore other files including SMS, photos and videos. Download the trial version for free.
