If im not wrong, when you make a backup of your iphone, you have to select Sync contacts with itunes. Then, when you restore the iphone instead of select set as new iphone, you have to select restore from Backup.

Yes, you must always set up as a new iPhone, but if you had synced your contacts with your computer, you can go to contacts in iTunes and select sync contacts :)  That should restore all the contacts :)  (what I always did when I had friends ;) )

In fact, if you want to recover deleted/lost contacts from iPhone, iTunes/iCloud Backup may helps. But if iTunes can't recognize your device or you forget iCloud account password, a third party tool will help such as iPhone Data Recovery, which provides you with three modes to get data back: restore directly from iDevice, recover from iTunes and retrieve from iCloud backups. It can save your time and solve your problem within several steps. What's more, you can restore contacts from iPhone directly or retrieve contacts by choosing iTunes/iCloud Backup mode.
