The only native way to view the iNotes contacts is by hosting the file on a Domino server and opening the 'Contacts' view in a web browser.

In a pinch, you can also view them in a Notes client by opening your Inbox, then holding the CTRL and SHIFT keys down together while selecting "View \ Goto..." from the Notes menu.  When the "Go To" screen appears, select ($Contacts) and click OK.  Contacts are not meant to be accessed this way, but as I said, it will work in a pinch.
