    Maybe I'm a moron, or not...

    I've searched and cannot find a clear answer - when you add a contact on the phone (a "phone contact") should it sync with your Gmail?... that is, should it create a new entry in your Gmail contacts (assuming one did not already exist).

    (Probably) Silly me, I expected this to happen, only it does not (or did not). New contacts added to Gmail DO sync to the phone.

    Thanks to anyone who can give a definitive answer - and help me figure out what's wrong if they ARE supposed to sync to Gmail.

    Click on Menu > settings > accounts then click on your gmail account and see if sync contacts is checked. I thought it synced both ways.

    So last night I added a contact to my phone, just checked gmail now and it did sync. The only other options I could find that may need to be checked are: go to contacts > menu > more > settings and see if the sync is checked there. Also, do you have background data on?

    Well, I just tried it again... and of course it worked. Maybe I was just having a bad day before... but good to know it's supposed to work and does work.

    Thanks all!
