Is there anyway to get all my contacts back on my iPhone after deleting them all?

Q: I noticed duplicates in my address book after spending much time editing my address book within my iphone and decided to delete all my contacts within my address book within my MacBook. Thinking that when I would synch my iphone back to my mac would then populate the Mac address book with my new collection, I sorely found that my iPhone now has no contacts and did the exact opposite of what I was hoping to achieve.

So, i tried restoring the address book, however, time machine was not set up and the help manual did not specify any other means to restore my MacBook address book contacts. Am I S-out-of-luck or is there a way to restore my address book within my MacBook?
