You can use an iPhone Data Recovery to get back all your contents, including contacts, photos, videos, SMS, notes, call history, etc. But one thing you should keep in mind is that not to sync your iPhone with iTunes after you lost all the contents, or your previous data will be overwritten and you won't ever get it back. With this in mind, let's check detailed steps below together.

First, download and have a try the professional iPhone Recovery Tool:
iPhone Data Recovery (Win) or iPhone Data Recovery (Mac).

Please Note: Plesae don't use your iPhone and don't sync your iPhone with iTunes, avoiding iTunes backup being updated.
