Nope, at least not that I know of. Once it's gone, it's gone. My brother just lost his phone recently, too... He had to get a new phone, SIM card, and a new phone number, too.

Re: retrieving data?

Depends:  If it was a smartphone; most of them have apps that backup for you in the background.   If it was andorid; at least you contacts would be backed up to your gmail account.  And there are other apps that sync you other data to the cloud as well.   But; I would think you would know if you did that.

 

If you had a fairly recent ATT feature phone, its asks you if you want to sync your contacts to a cloud address book when you activae it.  If you did that your contacts are at least saved.
