You should be able to hold down the contact and get a few different options. One should be copy to yourname @gmail.com. That is the best way. I put a rom on my phone. When I started the phone up again the contacts I'd saved were there. Fully saved with picture and notes.

I did that yesterday and I still don't see my contacts in Gmail . I'm not worried about it though, I'm using Cricket's MyBackup anyway.

A better suggestion would be start clicking your email when saving new contacts because that is how they get saved in your gmail in the first place. If you click phone it won't sync until you ask it to which is more complicated than just clicking your email in the option. In CM6 or CM7 it's a default option to save to gmail.

I always back up my contacts to sd card and copy them to my pc. Google has enough info about me they don't need to know who my friends are too.
