Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? When you say they didn't save to Gmail, do you mean that you went to contacts.google.com on your computer browser and they weren't there? Contacts don't save to Gmail -- they save to your Google Contacts in the cloud, but only if you specifically saved them to your Google account. If the contacts were saved instead to the local Phone account (which is often the default in many phones), those don't get synced anywhere, and if something happens to the phone and the contact info is lost, then it's lost forever.
