    Dear community

    Yesterday I bought a Sony Xperia T and I wanted to delete some pre-installed apps with Cleaner app. Unfortunantly, I also accidentally deleted the 'Contact' and 'Phone' app. And now I'm asking if there is a way to retrieve them back.

    I would be very appreciated if someone would help me to resolve this problem.

    Hello, :)

    If you can not find the apks to reinstall, and if there is no restore feature on that phone, ( I heard some do) you might have to do a factory reset to put it back to stock.

    It will probably wipe your phone, so make sure to save anything you want to keep before you do so. :)

    Dear Dustwin
    I've done it before from settings, settings, back-up and reset and factory reset but still, I didn't retrieve the 'Phone' and 'Contacts' app. :(

    Do you know the other method to retrieve those apps back? Or is there someone else who can help me?

    As short a while as you have had it, I would consider taking it back to where you bought it and see if they can fix you up. :)

    If someone in here posted the apk or knows where you can find them. You could download and install them.

    There are probably non stock ones on playstore, as well.

    I hope you get it fixed.

    Hmm, I searched 'Contacts' on the PlayStore and it seems there are some free-to-download contact third party apps. With those apps, I can call my friends. Maybe I should download those, they have exactly the same function like the orginal pre-installed Contact app.

    I downloaded the Contacts+ app but when I tried to create a new contact or to add a phone number of someone, it says that it couldn't find an application for this action.

    Maybe because I deleted the original pre-installed contacts app?

    That sounds reasonable. Like it is piggybacking on the stock app.

    A different one might not.

    Since no one has posted an apk from their phone, i am starting to think your best option is to see if you can get it restored where you bought it. :(

    A reflash would do it without having to take it anywhere so long as you haven't unlocked the bootloader:

    To repair the phone software
    1. Install PC Companion on a Windows PC from Support at Download for PC - Sony Smartphones (Global UK English)
    2. In PC Companion, under Support Zone and click Start.
    3. Under Phone Software Update, click Start.
    4. Click repair phone.
    5. Follow the on-screen instructions.
