    where did your contacts come from??

    I think when you get an android phone, and import the contacts from a different the retail store where they plug it in....

    then it grabs them all i do believe...

    and if you sign on t facebook on your phone....pfft it grabs them....

    or your hotmail...yup them to....

    i got crap on here from people i havent emailed in years

    If your contacts are saved to gmail and not locally, they should transfer over immediately when you first log in to your phone. If your phone contacts are all local, you can try first exporting them, then set your phone to save all new/imported contacts as gmail, then re-import your contacts. Note this may create duplicates in your contact list (both phone and gmail), so you'll need to then either delete the phone contacts or just hide them. All of this can be accomplished in the contacts app via the menu button.

    I've never done it, but I'm assuming that when you export to the SD it's in some sort of format that you could import into gmail. All you'd need to do is email that file to your gmail, and then from a PC, log into gmail and import the contacts file. I'd imagine it'd be that easy.
