Your contacts should sync automatically when you sign into your google account from the phone, but you have to reinstall all your apps manually.

Sometimes you need to reinstall Gmail, but then you just go to accounts and sync and sync it back up, then in market if you press the menu button and goto my apps it'll show all apps you downloaded, you will have to re download each of them

It should automatically backup and sync. Make sure 'Sync Contacts' is checked in Accounts & Sync. Just to stay on the safeside I like to keep a backup vCard which you can create by going to your contacts, hitting menu, then clicking export.
