Did you put an active SIM card in the phone? Your carrier won't reactivate without it.
Also, you realize that when you restored the phone, you deleted all data including the contacts unless you also restored a backup that containted them. Right?

Active sim card is in the phone and just tried again and success however itunes recognised it as a 'new' phone. . As mentioned above had never plugged it into the computer before, had always acessed itunes via the phone. So guess that means that there is no way I'll get the contacts back??
