    So I just rooted my phone, only problem now is I have no apps or anything. There is no app store, i have no contacts or anything, and i cant connect to my gmail account. I have no idea what to do, especially since I thought that rom manager made a backup of my stuff.

    This is normal. When you first root and the new custom rom is pushed to your phone it starts as new and none of your stuff is going to be on the phone until you put it on there. The same will be true when you flash a new rom. The only concern I have is not being able to log in with your gmail. Is the internet working on your phone? If all else fails you can go to a pc and log into your gmail then go to google.com/contacts and all of your contacts that were synced with your gmail will display for you but you have to be logged in of coarse. You can get the google play apk here if you still need it [APK] Google Play Store v3.5.16 + MOD - xda-developers. Good luck on this.

    Well I downloaded the play store, but when I use it it says that I need to add an account to the device. When I click yes to add account now it does nothing and kicks me to the main screen

    Try adding your gmail by going to accounts and sync. Menu key > settings > accounts and sync. Do you know what Rom you are using right now? Some roms like cyanogenmod don't come with Google services baked in. If it is cyanogenmod then you can get googleservices here Goo.im Downloads - Browsing gapps-gb-2 0110828-signed.zip You have to flash this from recovery. Hope this helps.
