need my contacts

Well, if you had your phone synced to a Google account, and updated it regularly, the contacts would be there. Or if you had them saved to a SD card, they should be readable from it. However, if they are on a dead phone, there is no way to get them. If they were deleted there is a very slim chance you can get them back, but it is really slim. Once deleted, they are meant to be gone.

There are a few apps/programs out there that 'may' be able to help you recover the data.

A few of the programs you could try would be... DiskDigger, MobiSaver, Android-Recovery and Tenorshare. They are all data recovery apps/programs. There are many others out there, so check around and see which you would rather try. There is also one called RECUVA, that I have heard is free, which you could try.

One important note though, most of these programs are not free. They may say they are "free" or have "Free Trials" and "Free Downloads". Yet to actually recover your data, and get your files back, you may be have to purchase the program/app. Just so you know.

NOTE: For future reference, I really would suggest backing up your data to a computer or cloud. Often. Better to spend the time doing that, rather than to be out all that stuff if the phone dies, things get deleted/erased or it gets stolen.
