Lost Contacts on iPhone 5 with No Backup – How to Recover?

iPhone Lost Contacts, Help!

My wife’s iPhone 5 has suddenly decided to delete all her contacts. She didn’t connect to iTunes or do anything out of the ordinary.

The phone kicked her out of a few applications back to the home screen, so she switched the phone off and on again. On checking contacts, she saw the entire list was gone.

No idea if they were gone before the switch off or not but all seems very strange. Subsequently updated to the latest iOS 7 to see if that would help (which it didn’t!) Now I am waiting for you clever guys to provide any advice on recovering the lost contacts on the iPhone 5. Thank you in advance.
