Recover iPod Touch contacts with Enigma Recovery software

With the decline in traditional physical address books, more and more of us are turning to our portable gadgets to store the important information we use on a day to day basis. Users of the iPod Touch are no different; the conveniently built in ‘Contacts’ app on an iPod Touch allows users to store personal contact information of friends, family and business associates, storing data such as contact phone numbers, emails and physical addresses.

Keeping this information on your iPod Touch is very convenient if you need to make a FaceTime call or send an email directly from your device.

However, problems may arise when you accidentally delete important contact information, or even worse all of the contacts on your iPod Touch. It is easily done – one swipe or tap on the wrong button and you can find yourself in an upsetting situation. Losing contacts could also be out of your control; a failed software update could also result in data loss.

In these types of situations, the last thing you would want to do is be forced to manually rebuild your contacts on your iPod Touch, by asking all of your former contacts to give you their details again! Fortunately, there is a data recovery software solution, offered by Enigma Recovery, which will recover deleted contact information and even allow you to export it to your computer or restore it back to your iPod Touch.

This software is completely safe in extracting and restoring data and will scan either your iPod Touch device directly, or a backup file of your device. Able to recover different types of data, including Contacts, Calls, Messages, Notes and more, our software will find your deleted data and display it to you in a readable format.

To recover, retrieve, export or restore contacts from your iPod Touch, follow the steps in one of our tutorials below.
