Recently I deleted my Outlook account on my Nokia Lumia 730 and lost all the contacts which were stored in the mobile. How do I retrieve them. It seems the contacts are stored in outlook.com. Can anyone help?

    Yes, the contacts should be stored at outlook.com. Have you tried logging in with your Outlook/MS account?

By default, Windows Phone stores you contacts within an online service (be it Outlook.com, Gmail, etc.). You will need to add the account back, to get the contacts - if required, you can reset your account password online
