Recover Contacts from iPhone Backup with Tenorshare iTunes Data Recovery Software

Does anyone know how to recover lost contacts on an iPhone?
I lost all my contacts on my iPhone 5 for some reason. It means a lot to me, can anyone tell me how I can recover my lost contacts? I can use iTunes and I synced my iPhone to iTunes on my computer from time to time. So if there is anyone out there that can tell me how i can restore contacts from iPhone backup. Thanks.

Yeah, you can recover lost contacts from iTunes backup because you have synced your data with iTunes before. Every time, you sync data between your iDevice and iTunes, all the data will be backed up as .sqlitedb files by iTunes. And the backup files will be updated to the last sync. That’s mean you just can extract the final backup file from iTunes. This type of backup file can’t be taken out or viewed unless using some program as Tenorshare iTunes Data Recovery.

iTunes Data Recovery enables you to extract iTunes backup file, including contacts, text messages, notes, photo, video, call history and calendar, no matter you’re using iPhone or iPad and iPod Touch. The software is compatible with latest Windows 8 & 7, Vista, XP and Mac. To get your lost contacts, you need to download the free trial version of iTunes Data Recovery program.
