1.   configure ur gmail account
2.   go to contacts menu -> import/export -> export to sd card (saves on external card)
3.   delete all your contacts
4.   now you will need internet connectivity
5.   go to contacts menu -> import/export -> import from sd card -> select that backup file ->  save contacts to google
6.   you are done here
7.   contacts will stay in 2 way sync ie: changes made on phone or gmail will be shown in both places
8.   this way you don't ever need 2 take backup of your contacts
9.   in case u accidently delete contacts on phone, it will also be deleted from gmail contacts, ur contact details is lost.  in this case there is option in gmail contacts -> more actions -> restore

** whn u have 2 add contact or calender entry to ur phone, make sure tht its entered into gmail acc
( on top it will show ur gmail acc, if u r entering it into gmail acc)
( while entering event in calender, under calender tag select ur gmail acc )
even if u dont have connectivity 2 net all details will be shown in ur phone, and when u get connected it will flash into ur gmail acc also )
each and every minute details such as pics, anniversary, B'days, notes, everything will be synchronized, also dates ( b'days & anniversary ) will flash in ur google calender.

You don't have to delete the contacts, you can just export them to the SD card then import to your gmail account. Works slick.

If you sycn from your phone to Gmail on the web does everything get transferred like photo's, birthdays etc? In other works does it do the job 100%?

Are the same things also true about the calendar?

It occurred to me that this might works even better in reverse by deleting everything from your phone & then downloading everything again from the Gmail.  If your list of contacts on the phone are like those of my wife's where she has a total mess with many wrong & duplicated items it should be quicker & easier to this.  I have always found it faster & easier to do contact updates on a bigger keyboard.

Does anyone agree?
