You require nothing but only a SIM Card Readder(GSM Card Reader), A Windows PC, You SIM card from which your contacts are lost.

Now you need to connect you SIM Reader with your PC and install the driver software for it.

Connecting SIM to PC with Reader

As every device this also needs a software for its working. That can be got when you buy the reader. Or can be taken from internet.

  2. Hi
    what software you using for recovery (above pic)mate.

    1. @ Appu,

      The above given screenshot is a software which is provided with the SIM Card Reader you buy. Some times the software may be built-inside the SIM Card Reader. For different Readers the software might change, but I believe All software will have the similar functions.

  3. Hi Appu, I have puchased a sim card reader but I'm not able to see the recovery of my deleted contact numbers but I can see undeleted contact numbers.

    Please advise.

      I am the admin of this blog. I have written a new post for those who failed to recover using this trick please copy and paste the below link to your address bar, or click on it.

  4. Sir,

    Will you please make me clear whether the SIM card reader and Memory card reader are same or different. Can i do the explained process by inserting SIM card in memory card? Please suggest me.

    1. Hi Dear,
      A memory card is just a device that can read portable memory cards. But A SIM Card reader is used to read your SIM data. As an example your phone is a simcard can read your contacts within the simcard, messages, call logs and so on..

      In short they are not same as they do different functions, but there may be readers supporting these two.

      There is nothing to explain more, simply install the sim reader software on your pc if available (For some devices there will be software installed inside the reader). And plug the Sim reader with your sim into USB.

      You can try this at your own risk, I do only share my knowledge as well as my experience with my readers.

      Best of Luck !

    1. hi buddy..
      First of all, let me know the product's company name.

      I suggest you the following:
      * Check wether it asks for to choose any language when you install the application.
      * try a Google search on how to change language including the company name.
      * still you fail, use Google translator to translate Chinese to englis ( virtual keyboard in it will help you to type Chinese).

      I am getting many mails and comments on this topic, I will be posting many alternative ways of recovering deleted contacts soon.
