    Flash any Gingerbread ROM and you should be good as far as app compatibility. You probably should have backed up your contacts before rooting..

    Did you do a nandroid backup? Did you use titanium backup to backup your apps?

    As long as you have a nandroid backup (made through recovery or rom manager) you should be fine. Just make sure you wipe properly before flashing (wipe data/factory reset, cache and dalvik cache. Optionally, format system, data and cache. I would also suggest getting comfortable with recovery and not just trusting rom manager to do everything for you.
