“I am an insurance agent, and keep in touch with my customers through WeChat. But some of my WeChat contacts were deleted by my 5 year old son carelessly. Is it possible to recover them from the iPhone because I have never backed up my iPhone to iTunes. I don’t even have an iCloud account. No backup at all! I have asked apple support for help, only to end up with a frustrating reply that I am out of luck to recover the lost wechat contacts since I have no backup at all. Please help! Because the contacts are really important clients.”
Well, losing the wechat contacts is really a sad thing, but not an unsolvable thing.
If you do keep in touch with your customer through wechat, the WeChat contacts are very important information for you. Therefore you cannot afford losing them through accidental deletion. We are not scared of the trouble we ran into, instead, we are scared about having no way to recover the lost WeChat contacts, especially when you have no iTunes nor iCloud backup file like what the customers posted above.
Fortunately, there are a number of third party iPhone data recovery software that can recover lost iPhone data from iPhone as well as iTunes and iCloud backup file. iFonebox is such kind of software and it is the first desktop program that can retrieve lost wechat contacts, wechat messages and wechat messages attachment. With this magic iFonebox, you can recover the deleted wechat contacts directly from your iPhone with just a few clicks.
Before getting started to recover lost wechat contacts, you need to make sure your iPhone is accessible. Also, you need to decide which version of iFonebox you want to install according to what kind of computer your are using, as iFonebox is available for both Windows and Mac.
Install and run the full version of iFonebox. Connect your iPhone to your computer and click the popped up button “Start”. In this way, you have chosen the recovery mode of “Recover form iDevice”.
Then the next interface will show you all the supported data categories. Choose WeChat to scan selectively by clicking on the relevant icon. Then the program should start scanning for the WeChat contacts automatically.
Preview all the exported data after the scanning process is finished and choose whatever you need to recover to your computer.
