Hi @Dawnof2000,
I definitely understand how important it is for you to be able to access your contacts.I can help you with this.
With AT&T Address Book being discontinued all contacts stored in the cloud has been deleted. There is an alternative solution to recover your contacts. If your device was synced with your Google account, you may be able to transfer your contacts to a new device. Google has this great article, on how you can restore your contacts.
I hope this helps you out! Have an amazing rest of your day.
