Sony Ericsson Xperia is the family of Sony smartphones and tablets, which advertised by Sony company since 2008. It brings great joy and convenience to us and you can see many Sony fans holding Sony phones here and there. If you are a Sony Ericsson Xperia user for a long time, you must save lots of important contacts on your phone that are closely correlated with your life and work. However, as far as I’m concerned, many people have no idea and even feel depressed when they got their contacts deleted or lost from their phones.
Then, is there any solution to get back the lost contacts from Sony handset? To be honest, deleted or lost phone contacts can be still recovered back. That’s because phone system will momentarily store the deleted files as invisible and inaccessible type. But once you store new data into the phone, the deleted files will be overwritten by the new data and you will lose the chance to recover them back. Therefore, you’d better stop using your Sony Ericsson Xperia phone to save new contacts if you still want to get the lost contacts back.
