Where do you see the date of the backup?
Did you used iCloud for your Contacts?
Where did you backup your 7000 contacts?
Did you check your iCloud content in www.icloud.com from your desktop browser?

Actually I realized what I'd done wrong! I restored via my laptop.iTunes & NOT over the air with iCloud!
So I wiped the phone, & started all over again restoring wireless via iCloud! Guess what? It worked!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this & help! I'm an idiot, but I suspect that it's a mistake that occurs frequently!

You find the answer so you are not idiot at all.
Keep in mind that iCloud its not a backup system.
Backup your Contacts through desktop Contacts app (or outlook if you are using Windows) or download the "My Contacts Backup" app from App Store to save your Contacts.
Also you have to export your Camera Roll to your computer.
