History on iPhone, not on Desktop (Mac)

Question. Is there a way to recover Skype history that -- due to restoring from a backup on the Desktop -- is on an iPhone but not on any desktop applications? The chat apparently did not sync. I see a gap for last Friday and Saturday on all my Desktop Skype applications, and the history for two contacts are only on the iPhone. I bet everyone will get stumped on this one...!

You can extract your contacts from the iTunes backup when you lost your iPhone. iTunes can automatically back up your iPhone contacts and update it every time when you sync it. So you really have a big chance to know how to restore contacts on iPhone.

If you don't synced, you can directly scan and recover deleted contacts from your iPhone with iPhone Data Recovery.

Solution 1: Scan and extract iTunes backup to recover iPhone contacts (without iPhone)
Step 1: Scan the backup file
Step 2: Recover your iPhone contacts

Solution 2: Directly scan and recover contacts from iPhone 5/4S/4/3GS
Step 1: Connect your iPhone to the computer
Step 2: Enter the device's scanning mode and scan it
1) Hold your device and click the "Start" button.
2) Pressing the "Power" and "Home" buttons at the same time for exact 10 seconds.
3) Then release the "Power" button, but keep holding "Home" for another 15 seconds until you get
Step 3: Preview and recover iPhone contacts

Normally the devices exchange data when both are online at once. I'd say to try having both the phone and computer on skype at once. It may just be a glitch though.

ridiculous to have to uninstall and install a program because it can't synchronize messages across devices.

Sounds good. My contacts are OK, but those two days are missing. It turns out no important meeting chats were occurring. Thanks everyone.
