If you sign into a Google™ account during the initial setup process, your Samsung Epic™ 4G automatically synchronizes contacts with your Gmail™ account.
If you add contacts to your Samsung Epic 4G before signing into your Google account, your contacts do not synchronize with Gmail. They are saved as Phone Only contacts.
After you've associated your Google account with your Samsung Epic 4G, 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 Account.
