Default Copy phone contacts to gmail contacts?

When my girlfriend got her Eris about 4-5 months ago Verizon was kind enough to copy her contacts from her Razor phone to her new Eris.

However she now needs to return the phone for service (silent call bug) and she went to Gmail to ensure all her contacts was backed up... they are not. It seems the contacts are stored on her phone (Eris) and not in gmail.

How can we import all of her contacts from the phone memory into Gmail?

Check out post number 4 on this thread: Can't get contacts to back up- Help Please!!!

UiA Backup Contacts will let you back up the phone contacts to your SD card in CSV format, which you can then import to your gmail contacts from a PC web browser (after copying that file over to your PC, of course.)

Well I kept playing with the phone and I've now managed to backup her contacts.

I went to People > Menu > Import/Export and exported the contacts from the phone to the SD card. I then connected the phone to the computer and downloaded the .vcf file to my PC. Then it was just a matter of importing the .vcf file into gmail.com and all of her contacts are there.

Good to go!
