Set up the same email accounts on your iPhone 5s, and you’ll find your contacts there as well.

iCloud does not backup contacts, if they are already stored in your iCloud account.

You’re welcome.
when i check icloud it indicates that the backups have been done, but when i try to restore it says "no archive" - have i got the concept right? -
also i thought that once backed up i would be able to see the icloud contacts when i select icloud -
please guide me to a link that will explain the concepts to me

I don’t think there’s a link that explains iCloud completely.

To make sure there’s a most recent backup, go to Settings - tap your information, go to iCloud - iCloud Backup - "Back Up Now". Right below that, you should see the time of the last backup. To backup manually, tap "Back Up Now".

To get your contacts to a new iPhone, you don’t need a backup.
Just set up the email address which stores your contacts on your other device, enable Contacts, and they will be synced to the iPhone.
When you activate an iPhone, it will ask you to login to your iCloud account. When you’ve done this, go to Settings - Mail - Accounts, select your iCloud account, and make sure Contacts is enabled.
To set up an email account other than iCloud, go to Settings - Mail - Accounts - Add Account, and set up the email account.

If you can't get it done through iCloud. Try this app. Fotoswipe. Hope you get it resolved.

Email accounts backup contacts well. I prefer gmail. Also this doesn't tie you into OS specific. ie. IOS.
