Why can't you sync your contacts? Gmail is the best way to do it but you can also export your contacts to your SD card. I have a completely different ROM on my phone but for me all I have to do is go to the people app, hit menu and then hit import/export. I'm sure it's something similar with the stock ROM.

Metalhead is correct. It creates a files on the root of the SD, so if you reload your phone you can import that files from the SD card.

Cant hit Menu the 4 buttons not working, Sprint is back orderd on the EVO's and they don't know when they will be avaiable. For the time being i can get to setting and onto the screen that sync's to g-mail but nothing happens after i hit sync

Well if you can get to the setting screen go to accounts & Sync. Click on your Google Account and make sure it is set to Sync Contacts. Now you can verified that it did this by logging into Gmail and looking at your contacts. You should see all the contacts from your phone there.
