    open a contact and see if they are "people" contacts or "google" contacts

    if they are people contacts then from main contacts window click on menu>export to sd card then delete all your contacts then click on menu>import contacts and import them as google contacts then sync to gmail

    I think it exports them as a CSV file. Take that file, and open it using excel to make sure all your stuff is there.

    The contacts are at the root (top level) of your sdcard (not in a folder). It is actually a vcf (vcard) file. You'll want to view that in a text editor, rather than excel.
