back up your phone contacts to SD card....then delete your phone contacts.

Then import the backup you created and select import and google contacts they should then start sycing to your gmail account

hope this helps

Thanks, but will the newly imported contacts end up in gmail??? Won't they just end up in phone again (as it was originally)?

the only downside i see to this is that some of the contact's options are not available to google contacts. for example you can't set personal ringtone to google contact..

Could you add a phone contact "tab" later if you want?
