    Either that, or if you had iCloud setup then that should have your contacts backed up as well.

    Usually you have to put the phone in DFU mode:

    Once you put your phone into this mode, you will need to restore the backup file that you have using the itunes program. This should put the contacts back if you backed them up. I hope this helps.
