    How do you sync all your contacts to gooogle?

    Also I've noticed that only my google contacts will allow me to use a custom label for phone numbers when I edit.

    I think all of your contacts are automatically synced to google as soon as you add your google acct.

    Not all of them. At least mine weren't . If you go to contacts and click on people you can switch for phone contacts to google contacts.

    But i found a fix in another post. You can export your contacts to your sdcard and then import hem back as your google contacts.

    This link should explain some of this better, and how to make your contacts sync better and easier... hopefully you didnt lose some of your contacts like i did when i traded it in thinking they had synced automatically like the rest of my google stuff

    After being fed up with multiple entries (phone/google/facebook, etc) for each person, I spent a whole day updating everything into my google contacts. I basically deleted all the ones called "phone". So now, when I make any changes through the phone, it updates my google contacts, picture and all. Now I have them all in one place, phone crashes (if ever) be damned!

    It was a pain in the ass, since nothing seems to truly sync it all into one platform, so I had to do it all manually. But in the end it was worth it. It's so much cleaner and easier to deal with now.
