    You need to export your contacts when you're on default Ginger Bread. Then you can import them from where they save when you flash the new Rom.

    If you have your contacts sync-d to ur gmail account, all you need to do is go to Setting > My Accounts > Add Account, and sign into gmail and it should bring all of your contacts back.

    Also you can go into Contacts, menu button, then select export to SD card, and restore when you have the rom installed
