    I vaguely remember seeing someone post with this question, so I thought I'd share what I did.

    There's an option to print your contacts, and if you select all from that little print popup, you can copy and paste them into excel. Save the file as a .CSV. From there, with only minor intervention, you can import them into gmail, search and merge duplicates, and you're ready to go.

    Depending on how you have people saved, you might have to split your list. I cut and pasted to split into two files; one with first and last names sharing cells, and other with first and last names in individual cells.

    NAME - John Smith

    as opposed to

    FIRST NAME - John
    LAST NAME - Smith

    etc...

    Pretty easy and saved me a shitload of time from manually reentering people.
