If your Android phone is missing, stolen or spoiled it is easy to retrieve all your contacts stored on that particular phone.
This is possible if you associated your Android device with a Gmail account.

These contacts are kept online by Google and it is very easy to retrieve those contacts when your phone is missing.
To do that, follow the steps below:
Go to google.com/contacts If you are not already signed in, signed in with your Gmail address that was associated with your Android device/phone. All your contacts that you stored on that particular Gmail account will be listed.
If you have a new phone and you would like to restore your contacts, follow the steps below:
