Mobile tip: Lost your phone! How to retrieve your contacts?

By Admin | 29 January 2009

If you lose your mobile phone or if it gets stolen, you can use following tips to retrieve your contacts. There are three possibilities (the tips will work with certain conditions and- if you are lucky):

  • If you regularly backup your phone contacts on your computer (for example in Outlook Contacts) with any kind of communication software before you lose your phone, you can easily restore your contacts to your new phone – just connect your phone to your computer and use software for Mobile – Computer synchronization (delivered with any modern phone).
  • For phones operating without SIM cards: you cannot get your contacts back. This is why it’s important to regularly make backups of the data contained in your cell phone on your computer.
  • For phones operating with SIM cards: if you subscribe to a SIM save option, your mobile operator will be able to resend the data back to you. Of course, this will only work if your phone directory is saved on your SIM card. Some mobile operators offer this option but it isn’t the case for all of them.
