    Are your contact currently only on your iPhone and not sync'd to any digital service?

    Yes. I am trying to sync them to gmail that has no contacts on it with no luck at all. ALL the how to that I have tried came up empty. It could be an ios 5 thing.

    The one common method of sync with itunes by using the sync in the info tab is not working. I am following the instructions exactly



    Then I go to my contacts in gmail and there is nothing. Totally empty. Why is that?

    I solved my problem. I did a search and found an app in the store called MCbackup. I backed up my contacts in a vcf file and emailed it to my google account. I openned the file from my google account and it populated the contacts section. VOILA. Done. Easy as pie )))))))

    I just did this and the whole thing including downloading the app, copying contacts, sending email to gmail and populating in contacts took about the same time as typing this!!
