How do i get my contacts back without syncing iphone to itunes
Is it possible your contacts were synchronized with an iCloud and/or email account? If so, add that account back in through the settings, and that may help to retrieve those contacts.
Are your contacts synced to icloud? if so use that to create a file which backs up all your contacts and email that to yourself and open the attachment on your phone and import them that way. Go to www.icloud.com and try it
