    Default contacts

    Is there a way where I can merge all of my regular phone contacts with my google contacts? I don't want to have to go into my phone and change each individual contact to google. Is there a way to do this quicker? I have tried to just sync it by going into the setting and hitting my gmail like that but it still didn't work. Am I doing something wrong? I just want to have all of my contacts from the phone to google.

    I found that just putting all my contacts in Google on my PC was easiest, and just deleted all the contacts stored phone-side.

    I believe you can export your phone contacts & import them to Google would make the process easier as well. I can go about and confirm this if you want to try it out.

    Okie dokes. I'm on my PC now so:

    On your phone:
    Tap People
    Tap Import/Export
    Tap Export to SD Card
    Tap Phone
    Tap OK

    On PC:
    Plug your phone in via USB
    Tap Disk Drive when it asks
    Load up Gmail on your PC
    Contacts
    More Actions
    Import...
    Browse to your SD card
    Find the PCSC file on the root of the card
    Tap import
    Tap More Actions
    Find & Merge Duplicates

    This is pretty much the same question I just came here to ask. My wife recently got an Incredible and the VZ tech imported all her contacts from her Blackberry as phone contacts, but I'd rather they be Google contacts so they synch with GMail. Is there any sort of option to change the contact type? From what I understand the export/import method results in 2 copies of every contact, since it leaves the individual phone contact and creates a new Google one.

    Edit: After trying CinnaBubbles solution, it worked perfectly. Thanks!

    Once you got all the contacts backed up via SD card you can go ahead and delete them from the phone.

    And then when you add them to your google account they will be synced automatically so that you will only have one copy of your contacts.

    What is the next step? I deleted my contacts from my phone and when I went into the setting to sync my google it synced but when I went back into my contacts nothing was there.

    These are the steps and appear to be correct to me.

    Did you import the file from your SD card to your GMail contacts on your PC? It should sync automatically on it's own.

    I did everything. It wouldn't sync for some reason when I had it mounted to the computer but once I unmounted it from the computer it synced just fine. I appreciate it.
