    Default PLEASE I need help !! I lost all my contacts and need to get them back from a back up

    OK, long story short. I edited my address book with someone else's contacts in order to restore and unlock and iphone while being able to give this girl all his contacts back. Afterwards I just wiped the address book.
    Then I completely forgot, and today I plugged in my iphone and it wiped off my contacts.
    I assume this has messed up my current itunes back up, but I do have another backup file form 4 months ago which should have my contacts in.
    Is there a way to recover them from that back up file?? I cant restore from back up cause my phone is unlocked.

    Yep, you're in a pickle, but not too bad of one.

    Get something like this: iPhone Backup Extractor for Windows and Mac

    That program is pay (but I think it will do what you need anyway without paying), but there are others that are free. Use something like that to pull the actual contacts database from the backup, then copy it onto your phone (overwriting the one that is there), and make sure the ownership and permissions are correct, then reboot the phone.

    Tada! All your contacts (from that backup) are back. This does assume that your current phone is jailbroken and you have AFC access to it (using something like DiskAid/iPhoneBrowser/iFunBox/etc.)

    Glad you found it! I was going to suggest tossing a few bucks to the forums via the link in my sig or the green donate link at the top since I know it costs an arm and a leg to keep them hosted every month, but it seems you already got that taken care of.

    Let us know if you need anything else!

    you can use other apps such as copytrans contacts to back up iphone contacts and restore them after (if needed):



    Hint: This is a paid tool but I have managed to go around its limitations and use the unpaid version as if it were registered. I have written about that in this thread.
