Answers to some of your questions about synchronizing contacts between your Samsung Galaxy Note II and Gmail
How does my Samsung Galaxy Note® II back up and restore contacts with Gmail™?
If you set up a Google™ account on your Samsung Galaxy Note II, your contacts automatically synchronize with your Gmail account.
If you add contacts to your Samsung Galaxy Note II before setting up a Google account, your contacts don't synchronize with Gmail. They save as Phone Only contacts.
After you've associated your Google account with your Samsung Galaxy Note II, anytime you add, import, or transfer a contact, your device prompts you to choose where to save the contact. Contacts don't synchronize with your Google account unless you select Google.
