  • When that's done, your iPhone will reboot and needed to be set up. Just going through the steps in the iOS Setup Assistant until you reach a screen titled App & Screen.
  • From there, choose Restore from iCloud Backup and sign in your iCloud account which you use to sync the iPhone to.
  • Choose an appropriate backup among the displayed iPhone backups according to the timestamp and the process should begin automatically. Keep Wi-Fi network connected until the process finishes.

When it completes, you should hopefully find that all call logs have been restored. Head to the Phone app and look up the recent contacts in the call history list.
