    Contacts missing after factory reset on Motorola Droid 2 android mobile

    I have done a factory reset on my Motorola Droid 2 android mobile as it faced certain critical network issues. But after that, the contacts saved on the device are seen missing. What can I do with this?

    You can not get deleted contacts.Once deleted then deleted.You should know that before factory reset it is very important that you take backup.If you do reset without having proper backup then will lose all the important files,data,contacts,messages etc.So,whenever you do reset again then take backup.

    hello guest,

    factory reset means that the internal memory gets erased and all the default settings are rolled back.
    it your contacts were stored in internal memory, then i would have got erased.
    it is advisable that you roll back from backup if you have created.
    you can also import contacts from your sim card or your google account if you had synchronized with it before.



    if non of the above is valid , then there is no way to retrieve your contacts.

    NOTE:- it is advisable to backup your data as soon as possible.

    here is a list of top apps for backing up your data:

    my backup pro

    app backup

    titanium backup pro

    my backup

    While doing factory reset,always you need to take backup of all data present in the device,as it will get deleted,it seems that contacts are stored in the intrernal memory of the phone thats why it got deleted,once deleted you can't retrive them back,try to store contacts in sim card for better functioning

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to rset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
