    Go to the app drawer, long press the icon you want & drag it to the desktop.

    Did you save them to your Google account, or did you save your contacts directly to your phone? You can restore deleted Samsung contacts by syncing to your Google account, but if they were saved to your phone and you reset, rooted, or switched phones you're out of luck.

    If you accidentally deleted your Android phone contacts, this does not mean that your data are gone for good. The accidental deletion of contacts only means they are inaccessible, as long as they have not been overwritten by new data. So, just put your Android phone on computer and follow the detailed steps to have a try.
    How to Restore Lost Contacts from Android
    Step 1. Connect your Samsung mobile phone to the computer (enable USB debugging)
    Step 2. Analyze and scan your Android device for lost contacts
    Step 3. Preview and restore contacts from Android phones

    You can restore from your Gmail if you sync your phone to it before. I thank you cannot directly recover deleted contacts from Android due to it was stored in phone's internal memory, not SD card. I have a method for your reference,I suggest you use some Android data recoevry softwares.

    When you have deleted the contacts accidentally, you can restore them if you have backup files. However, if you have no any backups, you can apply Android Data Recovery to fix this case to recover those deleted contacts back to Android phone or tablets as you like. Besides contacts, messages, photos, videos and more data can be recovered also.

    that is an useful way to restore contacts, have a try.

    Thanks to such professional Android Recovery programs, so we don't need to worry about losing important data. However, we'd better keep a habit to backup our phone data to computer with Android Transfer.

    Contacts are without doubt the important data type for smartphone users. Contacts may get lost unexpectedly when you delete it accidentally and you haven't back it up previously. But don't worry. Android Data Recovery will help you. There is an ideal program for you to recover deleted contacts on Samsung phone. In addition, you can also recover your deleted photos, messages, videos if you want.
