    Go log into your gmail account, connect your phone to your PC, go to contacts in gmail and export them to the SD on your phone.

    Log into your VZW account and see if the contacts are there.

    OK try this, go into recovery, restore your stock rooted back up, assuming you made one, verify contacts, then export to sd, then reflash ROM and if contacts aren't there hit menu while on contacts page and import from sd, I know its a work around but it will get contacts there
