    Recover contacts on HTC HERO after doing reset

    I reset my htc hero back to factory settings (holding home, end call, and back buttons together) because the unlock code for the phone was entered too many times until it asked for my email and password. I entered the correct email and password and the phone still said it was wrong, so I was forced to reset the phone.

    Now I am wondering if its possible to recover my contacts somehow? I did not sync them with gmail before. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks!

    Your contacts from the phone should still go to GMail, even if you didn't consciously do it. Its all done in the background. If you're able to download apps from the Market, that already means your phone has been associated with your GMail account.

    Go to your PC browser and check your GMail account. Go to Contacts. You can check if everything is there.

    If everything is there, give the phone some break period, after which, enter your GMail login and address again.

    For Android phone contacts recovery, generally, we can get them back from backup, such as sync from Google account, import from SIM card and memory card.

    If you don't have backup, the only way to recover contacts is using Android data recovery software, you can search "Tenorshare Android Data Recovery" on the web, this software is so effective to recover data from Android device, Good luck!

    Do you have a backup file of your HTC phone? If yes, that will be much easier!

    I know Google will auto sync contacts once you have logged in Gmail account on your Android phone. It is a good way to backup messages though. Last time I lose text messages and use Myjad Android SMS Recovery.

    To restore deleted contacts on HTC Wildfire from Gmail, you need to add your Google account to your phone first, and then go to the setting option to activate synchronization. When you update the contact list on your phone, the contacts in your Google account will be updated simultaneously. Well, there is a precondition: you need to sync your contact list to your Google account before you lost it, so that there is a backup for you to restore. You can't find anything on your Gmail account. It may be because you've never synced the contacts on your HTC Wildfire. Under this condition, you can only recover your HTC Wildfire contacts by directly scanning your phone to see if you can find them.

    I also use the Coolmuster to help me recover my HTC deleted/lost contacts.
