    So back when I first got my phone I was putting in contacts the dumb way selecting "phone contact" rather than putting them in under my google account. I also have a bunch of contacts recovered from backup assistant. Since I am constantly flashing new roms it has come to my attention that there isn't always Verizon Back up Assistant support on them. Take for example CM6-RC3, I love the rom, totally and completely....except when I try and run Back Up, it says it isn't compatible with the program and recommends uninstall. So my specific inquiry to all the great rooted Dinc users out there is, is there an easy way to turn all those annoying "phone"/old non google contacts into google contacts without doing each one individually on my computer/phone? As always thanks for the help!

    I believe you can go to the VZ website and export as a .csv or something, then import to your Gmail account.

    I did the same thing and csills is right, login into your verizon and go to backup assistant and you can export your contacts to a csv file and load them into your contacts. I did it through the google voice login, but I would assume regular gmail would work too.
