    It is always advisable that before you reset or update your phone take back up.Without if you lose any data then will not be able to get back.In your case you tried to update your device & had some disturbance which lead to deleted all the contacts.Since,you have been lost of all the contacts,there is no chance to get back the deleted contacts.If you had back up then would have been got the contacts.So,if you have written some where then feed the contacts in your device.

    Re: Contacts got deleted while updating HTC One S to Jellybean



    hey friend...

    The reason for this deletion of your contacts is that the contacts were saved in the phone's memory and hence when you tried to update your phone's software the contacts got deleted in the process..
    I am sorry to say this but its not possible to recover the contacts once those got deleted from your phone ...
    This is the reason why its always said to take a backup of all your phone's data before updating the software.
    There is only one way to get back all your contacts again only if you have a backup of all your contacts into your pc/laptop....

    Also i would like to suggest that you can use any 3rd party software for this purpose ...
    Using these type of apps or softwares can help you in recovering your lost data ..
    One of the most commonly used and popular software is pandora recovery software which you can download from cnet.com
    Though i am not sure it will work but atleast you can try this out...

    hope i helped..
    thanks ..

    Hi,
    The problem with the contacts deleted in your HTC one S device can be solved by one way if there is an backup in your Google Account then you can retrieve all your contacts, in order to do that you have to open the application drawer and then select "Settings" under the settings menu you will find an option as "Accounts&Sync" select that there you will find the primary Google Account of the device when that is present you will be able to select the option to Sync all your contacts if they are present in that account. In order to see if the contacts are present or not log on to "www.google.com/contacts" there you can find your contacts, you can also download and import them as vCard. This is the only way to retrieve your contacts if you don't have any backup.
    Hope this Helps.

    My dear friend.

    You should have taken the backup of your phone before updating it.

    If you have got any backup then you can get your contacts back from the backup.

    Check if your contacts have been synced to your email or so.

    If they are synced then you can get them back.

    Otherwise there is no way to the contacts back my friend.

    Regards
    tanveersandhu.

    Dear friend

    when we upgrade, downgrade or reset the device
    then it deletes all the data from the device
    or format the device.
    So that s why you are unable to find any contact
    one must take backup of all the data available in
    the device
    you can take the contacts by synchronizing with
    gmail, yahoo or facebook

    hope this will help you
