First, make sure that your settings are correct.
Settings---->Accounts&Sync--->Make sure both background data and Auto sync are checked---->then, perhaps more importantly, tap your gmail account under that and make sure all relevant items are checked (i.e. contacts).
If everything doesn't automagically repopulate after the reset go back to these settings and make sure the contacts are checked again.
