    If you had then synced in iTunes, you should be able to sync again and they should be there.

    Yes, sync and it should restore your contacts. Did you use Outlook Express, Windows address book etc?

    If you use iTunes 8.2 or 8.2.1 you'll be fine being that it's a 2g phone you'll have no problem jailbreaking it and unlocking also.
    Use redsn0w 0.8 and make sure you also have the 2 bootloader files for the unlock.

    Opps, saw that you already ran the jailbreak, did you use the 2 bootloaders?

    It just uses Edge, no need for 3g network or data plan. Sorry 3g cool, was looking at you details it says 2g there.

    Just may be a hic-up in your location, it triangulates from the cell phone towers.

    Sorry, you will get no help, direction or assistance here for warez or cracked apps.

    Because you didn't use Outlook or Windows Address Book or something like that I guess they were not stored when you had synced. Not sure there is much you can do really, Sorry. As you can see some data was restored but with calenders and contacts you have to tell iTunes where and what you wish to store.
