Contacts are needed to cover situations where the character has access to someone who will help but not in fact offer their full resources to the character's cause. Which is why they aren't complete characters and particularly why you don't pay for their full capability, because their full capability isn't available to the PC. And the reason why they aren't hirelings is because unlike hirelings, you don't need to negotiate and persuade to get them to help within the standard Contact parameters. It's an established relationship.
