It is so important to find a deleted phone number that was in my contacts and in my call history. It is absolutely very very serious. Every way I have turned to ends up being a dead end. There is no back up at my google accounts. I have tried so many programs for data recovery, but they recovered contacts I didn't need, not the one I am searching for. My phone is not rooted, but I don't mind if I have to root it in order to find the number. Please help, this person did something bad and it's the only way I have of ever finding them.

This matter sounds very important!
The only thing I can suggest is this;
Contact your cell phone carrier. Ask them to send you a itemized bill. This will probably have a small fee, but it will have a list of phone calls with the numbers that you made !
Make sure you request the monthly bill when you last called the number you seek!
And remember, in the future, write down all important numbers on a piece of paper or in a address book for future reference!
I hope this helps you!
Take care!

Bye the way!
Rooting your phone will not recover lost data. Rooting is mostly used to remove unwanted apps that your programming won't allow you to uninstall!
Just a heads up!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to reply. Unfortunately, I have already contacted my phone service company and I got an online analysis of my calls, but the number I really really need is not there. It was an outcoming call that wasn't answered and missed calls aren't billed. It really is very serious, but as it seems I am out of any luck. However, thank you for taking the time to reply. I hope you have a nice happy day.

Usually, if the deleted contacts and/or call history is not overwritten by new data, you can use phone data recovery tool to help you recover them. Just use it to scan your phone, if the deleted contacts and/or call history can be scanned out, you can get it back easily.

Proper way to root a phone.
Back up or record all your apps on external hard drive.
Install re-root program of your choice. There are many to choose from in play store and on the internet.
Then delete unwanted apps.
After check to see if there is any negative or unwanted effects to your device. If there are!
Then go to your back up and reinstall that app.
I have never done this myself, but that's the way to do it!

Have you turned on any built-in backup services? If no, try android recovery tool in the market. Actually I suggest backup your phone regularly.

You can call to your carrier and they can help you bring that back.

Before finding ways to restore or find back your contacts, you'd better to have a look at your Android device, because your contacts might not be deleted. So you need to make sure all your contats are being displayed.
1. Find "Contacts" and open it on your Android phone.
2. Tap on the menu button on the top right corner. Then choose "Settings" > "Contacts to Display".
3. Select "All Contacts". Now, you can return and check whether you got your contacts back or not.
If it is back, that means your contacts is not deleted but hidden. But if it is still not back, you can try the below method to get them back.

An excellent program is required for the task - MobiKin Doctor for Android (Win/Mac). It is easy to manage as you can recover lost, deleted, or formatted contacts on Android phones through only several clicks. Furthermore, before you make the recovery, the program allows you to preview all the contacts information, such as name, phone number, email address, company address and so on. So that you can choose what you want and restore them selectively. The restored contacts can be saved in the format of HTML or TXT.
