I've just deleted the note field of one of my Gmail contacts which contains very critical information.

Is it possible to recover it?

You can restore your contacts to any point in the last 30 days.

From Restore Contacts:

  1. Click Gmail at the top-left corner of your Gmail page, then choose Contacts.
  2. From the More actions drop-down menu, choose Restore contacts.
  3. Choose the time you'd like to revert your contacts list to (e.g. 10 minutes ago, one hour ago, one week ago, etc). We suggest that you also make a note of the time that you restore your contacts, in case you'd like to return to where you started.
  4. Click Restore. You'll see a confirmation at the top of the screen when the rollback is complete.

You might want to export your current contacts before you do this.

May I ask why we don't need Please help in our question? – Nam G VU Aug 28 '13 at 4:15
While it seems polite, it really just detracts from the content of the question. (You might want to have a look at this question on Meta Stack Overflow). – Al E. Aug 28 '13 at 12:13
