"I stupidly deleted my contacts on my iPhone 5 and now they all gone,I have synced my iPhone with my Mac last week, so I went to restore from backup to get the deleted contacts back on my iPhone,however the iTunes tell me "iTunes could not backup the iPhone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPhone"! oh my god,what should I do? Is there any way to restore deleted contacts back when iTunes backup was corrupt? "

Actually, iFonebox could directly scan your iPhone to find back deleted contacts number and synced these contacts back to you iPhone in a few steps. Before transferring deleted contacts back to iPhone you are allowed to edit and add contacts info like name, number, email address, etc.
Free download here:

Step 1 choose recovery mode
Install and lunch this ios data recovery on your computer and launch it, connect your iPhone with computer by USB cable, your iDevice will be automatically detected. Here choose “Recover from iOS device” as recovery mode.
If you have iTunes backup, you can also choose “Recover from iTunes backup” mode to preview the content in backup file, and extract iOS data from backup like contacts ,photos, notes etc

Step 2 Preview and restore deleted contacts on iPhone
This iOS data recovery will scan your iPhone automatically. The scanning time depends on the database on your iPhone. After scanning finished, all of the data on your iPhone could be displayed in the interface. Click “Contacts”, you could preview all the contacts on your iPhone one by one, check box “Only display the deleted items” on the interface to list the deleted contacts only, then choose those you want by clicking “Recover” button to save them all on your Mac.

Step 3 Edit and Sync contacts to iPhone
If you want to recover your deleted contacts back to your device, just tick off those you want recover and click “Transfer all selected to device” button on the bottom of the interface to transfer those deleted contacts back to your iPhone

Tip: You could do some edit before synced deleted contacts to iPhone. Choose one deleted contacts, and click the “Edit” on the bottom right of the interface to edit and add the content of this contact like name, number, address, birthday, etc. Then click "Save" button to transfer the contact back to you iPhone.
