When I first booted up after flashing, the SIM card was locked, there was no carrier voicemail number, and of course, no contacts!
Is there anything in the clockworkmod or the HTC boot that deletes the user data on the SIM?
This was answered on your post over in XDA-Developers. CM6 for the Aria cannot read the Contacts off of the SIM card, that is why your contacts 'appear' to be missing. They are still on your SIM card.
What you can do is reload a backup of your Sense ROM and sync the SIM contacts to your Google account and then reinstall CM6.
I have all of my contacts synced to my corporate Exchange server, so that is how I restore my contacts after flashing new ROMs.
