    So I accidentally saved a few contacts to my phone instead of my google account. Is there any quick way to fix this?

    Not sure, but I have a side question.

    When you go to create a new contact, it seems to default to the phone (at least it doesn't give me an option). But, when I got to save a number from someone texting me or calling me, it gives me the option to save to the phone or Google. Anyone know how to fix that? I only use Google contacts.

    I read here somewhere that you could export the phone contacts to the SD card, and then import them into Google contacts. I haven't tried it, but it may be worth a shot.

    Yep, what he said. Export the phone contacts to SD card, delete contacts from phone, Import contacts from SD card to Google.

    sabrewings, when you add a new contact, the first menu on the page is Contact Type, and the default is phone, change it to google.
