It happens when ur phone internal storage is full or often full. If you don't delete files to create space, your phone will tend to delete some files by itself, and the contacts is usually one of the victims. Also you need to update ur phone regularly because if it's been long u updated ur phone, and it's getting full, things like this happen too. Like people have said, always make sure all our contacts are saved on ur gmail account.

Change your Google account password immediately. You must have signed in to another phone and the person is deleting the contacts manually. Maybe you forgot to sign out of the account. Then go to contacts.google.com and manage your contact.

You can't link them. Except you start saving/moving the contacts to phone. I might be wrong.

It's either you saved it on your Google account, SIM or memory card you've ejected from your phone. It happens.

Someone is accessing your Google account through another device.

This happened to a friend when her second phone was stolen. The thief deleted some contacts and backed it up

I think you are correct because it happened to my phone. I used my email to open app store of my phone and my wife's phone so anytime I see strange contact and delete it on my phone it will be deleted from my wife's phone and anytime I saved number on my phone, it will appear on my wife's phone.

Some save contacts to different locations (gmail, phone etc).
Then check which location is set to display. Set on display all.

It's not a virus or anything.... You have your Gmail contact account on the previous phones you have used and the person maybe deleting unfamiliar contact..
Try logging out other phones connected to your Gmail account where you are saving your contacts and this will solve it.

Are you using Microsoft phone? Your contacts have been merged. If you check the contacts, you will notice that two or more contacts are hiding under one contact. Click on each contact and unlink them.

Hello guys,


Two days ago, i noticed some contacts are missing on my phone because I found out they are no longer saved, i only see the numbers on my WhatsApp chat list. This morning, it got worst. So i went to check my contact list and discovered that my contact that was over 300 is now 124 shocked. Please tech gurus, what could have caused that, and how can i get my contacts back? Some very important contacts to my life are missing.

NB: I saved my contacts in my google account

go to account and enter your google account..resync the contacts again..simple

Re: Help!!! My Contacts Are Deleting On My Phone by aod1(m): 12:57pm On Jun 22, 2019
You might have synchronised your email account on another device and the person with this other device be deleting them or probably storage problem. The later happened to me recently after giving my old phone to my nephew unknown to me that my email account was still synchronised.

Your is hacked you have a malicious app install on your phone.

Your contact can not be restored you can only prevent the rest from deleting by moving your contact to you sim.

Restore or factory reset your phone and thank me later

Oga why you no wan tell us the brand of the phone
Re: Help!!! My Contacts Are Deleting On My Phone by Softmojo(m): 1:39pm On Jun 22, 2019
bro. what happened to your old phone. did you sell it or did you give it out. if you did any of the above without doing a factory reset? then if the new user deletes stuff manually, then you will notice your contacts are reducing.


to fix this, use a browser on your foneto visit contacts.google.com. login and under the options select "undo changes".

also try and change your gmail password when you are done.

that only happens with Android OS to force you to back up your contacts on google, just write them down in your diary, spying spying never ends with google, I'm waiting for Huwaei OS , mind you there is no Huwaei on Auto Correct, not even Naira , google is an Ediot
