The disadvantages of using iCloud when your iPhone contacts gone
When sharing my way to restore iPhone contacts, I'd like to say that iCloud is not recommended for you to get the iPhone contacts back. Why? The disadvantages of iCloud are as below:
◆ The whole process is too complicated, whether backup iPhone contacts to iCloud or get contacts from iCloud
◆ The limitation of network environment. If there is no Wi-Fi, you are unable to get back any iCloud contacts.
◆ It is not easy for people to develop the good habit of backing up contacts through iCloud.
◆ The insecurity of iCloud: You have to take the risk that your iCloud account may be stolen by the ID theft specialists. Once it happened, the result will be out of your control. All data in your iPhone will disappear in the next second!
For the purpose of protecting your iPhone contacts as well as the vital information in your iPhone, we do not recommend iCloud to be your necessary tool for restoring and backing up iPhone contacts, especially for those iPhone users who prefer saving their credit card number and other information to contacts for checking for convenience. So it is necessary for you to get a safe and easy-to-use iCloud alternative to recover all iPhone data, including contacts.
When your contacts on your iPhone are missing, please stop cleaning anything on your iPhone with any third-party cleaning software. Don't answer calls and receive text messages. What you need to do is to turn off your iPhone for avoiding any more information overlap.
