Hey there Cboling001,
Congrats on the new iPhone 5. I have it myself and it truly is a great phone. I am clumsy when it comes to remembering numbers so I understand the importance of transferring numbers. Let's get you back up and running.
Are you missing a majority of your contacts? Which phone did you have before the iPhone 5? Did you run back up assistant? If you ran back up assistant on the previous phone I would recommend downloading it form the Apple App store and try restoring your contacts that way. Keep us updated with results.
