Are you not syncing your contacts to an email account like hotmail or gmail?
Reset takes everything off the phone and restores it to factory settings. A base install of the OS. Your contacts shouldn't be stored in the OS [only] unless you put them all in manually and chose not to sync your contacts with any service.
If your contacts are syncing to an email or exchange service, they will simply be downloaded to your device after you reset once you add the account (such as your hotmail account) they are located in.

Everything. Brings your phone back to its original, out of the box, state. Any Microsoft updates you have installed will still be there though.
Your contacts should already be synced with Windows Live and will return as soon as you ente your Live ID. Same for calendar. Some apps will auto-download, but you will have to reinstall the rest. And you will need to setup sync with Zune again.

Warning: There are no 32 GB microSD cards confirmed working with the Focus. Putting one in your device may damage it, and people have been reporting that this voids their warranty with AT&T.
Please see these threads for more information:
[REF] Working SD Cards List - xda-developers
[Q] Using a MicroSD voids Warranty?! - xda-developers
And yes, inserting a microSD card requires a hard reset, which will delete everything.

I purchased the 32gig Sandisk card from AT&T and have been using it in my Focus for months with zero issues. When I purchased it, I was told by the rep that it was compatible and could be returned if I had any problems with it. Couldn't say if it voids warranty or not.
