|Uploading contacts from iphone to google contacts?||kmb6||3/15/09 2:34 PM|
I tried uploading my iphone to google contacts through iTunes, which is recommened before setting up google sync, as once you set that up, it wipes your current contacts off the iphone. itunes says it's syncing contacts; but it takes a long time, and when it's done, I go into google contacts, my iphone contacts are not there. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Yes, I also have missing contacts that were never uploaded by itunes into my google contacts. I haven't proceeded to the second step since I am sure that I will lose those contacts.

I traced the source of the bug. Before the sync, if you have a contact in your phone with an email address that is associated with a contact already in your gmail contacts book, then the iTunes backup/sync in the first stage will not upload that contact into your google contacts. That means that any phone numbers associated with that contact will not get put into your contacts book.

Thanks! But, very few of my contacts in my phone have e-mail, and none of my contacts uploaded to google. I wonder, if even one contact in the phone has an e-mail, does the error occur? Possibly if I just remove all e-mail addresses from my phone, it would work?

hmm... in my case, only the contacts with email that have already been listed in the google contacts, suffers from this bug. The contacts that do not have email are uploaded fine, in some cases, automatically merging (with name matching) with existing google contacts that only have the email. Also, if I remove email from a phone contact, then that individual contact will upload just fine.
In your case, since no contacts at all are being uploaded, it may be something else all together.
