Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!
Go into Settings then iCloud
It should show green next to CONTACTS -- If it shows Green, tap it to turn off then tap it back on again. If it does not show Green then turn it on.
Now check your contacts.
If that does not work, please hold down the POWER and HOME buttons together until you see the Apple icon then release the buttons. After the restart, check to see if the contacts are back.
I am checking back up on you about your issue. If the issue is resolved or you do not need anymore help, please rate our session as 4 stars or more and press Submit so I am credited with helping you otherwise please reply back so we can continue with the issue.
