Frequently asked questions
Unfortunately you cannot do this as long as you don’t have direct access to the phone of this person. Such information is considered private, and is not accessible to the third party. However, in case you can install a tracking software, like uMobix, you will have access to the contact book, and detect any deleted contacts as well.
It is quite hard to identify when someone deleted your number, since it’s not the same as to get blocked. You can try to send this person a passage or give a call. If you cannot do this most likely you get either blocked or deleted from the contact list. It can also be that this person simply ignores your calls or messages.
You could try to sort them out if your contacts are synced with Google Contacts. If not, then it is quite hard to sort them like this, since such data is not usually stored. However, you could also try to use a tracking app, like uMobix. With this app you will be able to monitor the contact list and see the data when it was added.
When you add a contact to your contact list your device most likely does not store the date of creation. And it is quite hard to list the contacts in a chronological order. The most effective way is to use a dedicated app, that monitors all the contacts, and saves information of when it was added.
