  • I need help finding my contacts from iCloud?
    I have an iPad and an iPhone, both using the same apple ID. My phone has recently been lost so I needed to go on the iCloud website to get my contacts, but the contacts from my iPad are coming up and not my iPhone. How do I get it back to my iPhone contacts being there? would i need to delete my icloud account? - Maria B

    Actually, if you backed up your iPhone data frequently with iCloud or iTunes, there are three ways you can choose to find contacts from iCloud: restore your device with iCloud backup, view contacts on iCloud.com and find contacts from iCloud backup with some iCloud backup extractor like iPhone Data Recovery or iPhone Data Recovery for Mac. However, if you just want to retrieve some lost contacts instead of all the data on your device, without doubt restoring device isn't a good choice.
