Default contacts on phone not syncing to gmail

bought Droid Monday night and the guy at store was able to transfer my contacts from my Palm 700p. However, the contacts are not showing up on Google.

If I make new ones on either phone or website, they sync. What the heck? I saw a thread that says it can take a couple of days, which makes no sense, but it's been a couple of days.

more info, i have noticed that if I go in to edit a contact that was moved onto phone at store, at the top it says "phone only, not synced".
I wonder if there is anyway to change the status of all these entries to get them to sync.

MOD: if this is wrong forum, please move

Default My Solution

I had the same problem.

I don't know if this is the best/easiest way. I exported the list from the phone to a file. Copied it to my laptop Thru the usb connection, and then imported into Gmail. They are syncing fine now.

Yep, they all doubled up, meaning if you edit a contact, there is a Google contact 'sheet' at top and if you scroll down, there is a 'phone only, not synced' sheet. Crap.

So I did the solution (ha) in this thread involving reset. Used MyBackup first and only restored my Apps (apps and data are separate b/ups) and synced w/google (where I had uploaded as you said) and now my contacts are fairly squared away. MyBackup restored almost all my apps (ringdroid did not) and I have to redo my homepage, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Default Double up?

No, mine did not double up. Sorry you had that problem. Is my backup in the marketplace? That could be a handy tool to have.

Mine doubled up and then inexplicably fixed itself a day later... I was, like, so, mega crazy happy!
