I did not back them up to google but I did copy all of my files from my internal storage to external SD card before I did the reset. there should be some way to get them back. I have already tried importing from SD card SIM card and internal storage but no luck. please help.

    Welcome to Android Central! According to this thread, the contacts database that includes the Phone Account contacts is only available to manipulate if you're rooted. If you're not rooted, then it is unlikely that you were able to back up the database file to your external SD card if you did it manually. Sorry!

    For future, You can export the contacts to vcf and import them. Although I would recommend syncing with Google contacts.
