I figured it out. ON my old phone I had several email addresses. On the new one I only synced my iCloud. So all the other contacts were associated with one of the other email addresses. Once I added those accounts they all showed up. Now I just have to figure out how to associate them all to the iCloud account. Hope this helps someone else.

This is another reason I advise people to save their contacts to Google. Any mobile OS I choose to use at the time will always have instant access to all my contacts because of that.
Cannot access iCloud contacts on my Android or Windows Mobile devices if I swap my SIM over for a few days.

I switch between iPhones and Samsung phones often and save all my contacts to gmail which makes saving contacts very easy to transfer between devices.
I have a special gmail account that I use to save Names and Phone Numbers ONLY !!!
I don't want everyone I've ever emailed in my life being merged into my phone number contacts.
Saving contacts to Apple keeps you held hostage to Apple.
