    Welcome to Android Central! Clarify a couple of things:

    1. When you say contacts were deleted, do you mean you can't find the Contacts shortcut icon any more on the homescreen, or you actually went into the Contacts app and can't find any contacts there?

    2. Were all of your contacts associated with your Google account, or with the local Phone account only? If they're associated with Google, then they get synced to your Google Contacts in the cloud automatically. You can then sync them easily to any device that you log into with your Google account. If you associate them with the local Phone account only, then they don't get synced anywhere, and if they get lost somehow, or if something happens to the phone, then they're gone forever.

    3. Open Contacts, and tap Menu, then Contacts to Display--make sure the correct account has been selected.

    I don't think you mean that your Google contacts we're completely deleted, both on the phone and from your account, but just in case they were, this should restore them as long as it hasn't been over 30 days since they were deleted:
