As the users asked, if you have mistakenly deleted others' cellphone files, you must be worried about his/her anger or anxiety. Nevertheless, you cannot be anxious firstly and have to find out a solution to this problem. Actually, once you have backed up the cellphone before, there is no doubt that to retrieve the contacts and messages is really easy. If there is no any backups, how comes?
