1. Check if your contacts are stored in your Google Account: If you use a Google Account with your Android phone, your contacts are likely synced to your Google Contacts. To check, go to the Google Contacts website and sign in with your Google Account. If your contacts are there, you can simply sync them back to your phone.

2. Use a local backup: If you've created a local backup of your contacts, you can restore them by following these steps:

  • Tap "System," then "Backup."
  • Tap "Restore data" and select the backup file containing your contacts.
