Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question today.

After some research, I found a link to this site, where you can download a program to try and recover the contacts. Hopefully, the BB has not written over the files yet because if that happens, there is no way to recover them from that point.

Here is the link to the site https://www.bestandroiddatarecovery.com/recover-deleted-contacts-from-blackberry-priv.html

You should be able to download the software and hook your BB up to your computer to try and recover the contacts, but as I mentioned, I cannot guarantee that the contacts will be there.
