    Stack exchange doesn't work well when there are multiple questions. Please edit your post to concentrate on one issue, & provide as much detail as you can. As it stands, there is little to go on. – Tetsujin Dec 4 '15 at 15:52

The answer depends on where the contacts are stored.

  • If the contacts are stored in iCloud, you will not lose the contacts. Log in to iCloud and the contacts will be restored.
  • If the contacts are on your SIM card, you will not lose the contacts. You can re-import the contacts from your SIM card.
  • If the contacts are stored on your device, you will lose the contacts.
