    First thing to note is that the deleted data on the phone will remain there until something new is saved and overwrites it. This might not happen immediately but eventually, after continued use, it will.

    Either connect the phone straight to a PC using a USB cable (if supplied with the phone) or take the card out and put it in a card reader attached to the PC. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.

    Then try some photo recovery software on the PC. This should recognise the phone or card and then you can scan it using some good photo recovery software.

    attempt most of the tech web content, cellular/cellular telephones keep concepts regardless of if we predict of we've deleted them. there would desire to nicely be an app that helps restoration of deleted numbers. have you ever tried checking via all of the messaging and get in touch with logs to make certain if that selection is there, it merely isn't under a recognition yet would desire to nevertheless be indexed as a selection.
