Customer Question

I have a IMac Computer, Serial No. C02QM6RNGF1J, and an Extended Warrantee Feb. 2/19. I have deleted all my Contacts by accident. Is there any why I can retrieve them?
JA: How much experience do you have with this particular machine?
Customer: Not that much. I've only had it since October 2015. I'm still learning.
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: I can't remember. I think i's been a while.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I don't know how to do that.
JA: Anything else you want the Mac expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything, except I was having a problem adding a new Contact. But, I've done this before and it worked. It has been a while though, so I must have done something wrong and that's why I ended up deleting the existing Contacts. Isn't that why I have an extended warrantee with Apple Care?
