Is it possible this thing ?. And how can i restore the contact ?

    Default Re: Deleted Contacts.

    It is possible.

    He will need to restore from a backup to get his data back. When he deleted all the contacts without signal, but left the account on the device, as soon as you connected to wifi it sent all those deletes to the cloud.

    you should wipe the device he gave you so nothing will be left in their name. Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings
