    Contacts are not part of the iCloud backup, they are synced to your iCloud account instead.  If you were syncing contacts with iCloud they would appear in your iCloud account when you sign in on your computer to  If they aren't there when you look, you won't be able to recover them from iCloud.

    Can they be found anywhere else?  Does the phone itself store a backup somehow??
