    Before i realized that you had to save contacts to google to be able to sync them with Gmail i saved them all under the phone. I cant for the life of me find under the edit button in contacts to change from phone to google, if I create a new contact I can but with my existing contacts it wont let me. Anybody know of a way to do this?

    i think there are some apps that copy them to google contacts. but youll have to go through and delete all the phone contacts. but i dont think there is a way native to the phone to switch them to google contacts

    I did it manually. Added all of my contacts manually into my Gmail, deleted all the contacts in my phone, then synced. I dont think theres another way.

    Remember, you can open People, Menu -> Import/Export and send all of your phone (or google) contacts to a vcard file on your SD card.

    You can then move that file to your PC and then Import that file (More Actions) to your Gmail / Contacts.

    Kludgey - but it kinda works.

    thats how i did it..exported phone to sd card, then (without going to pc) imported back, it asked me if i wanted them google or phone..chose google..

    the kludgy part was linking them together..so they woulnt appear as dupes...
