    You can use another phone as your wifi hotspot if you have one available. That's the only way to do it.

    It's not a small update but I can't remember how big it was so it will take some time and preferably a good connection the whole time otherwise you'll have to start again.

    Yes you can update over mobile data. It depends on you data package as it may eat your allowance. It asks if you want to update over 3g or wait for WiFi.

    Your contacts are synchronised in the cloud in your Microsoft account. You won't lose any of your contact or message.
