How does my Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 10.1 back up and restore contacts with Gmail™?
If you sign into a Google™ account during the initial setup process, your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 automatically synchronizes contacts with your Gmail account.
If you add contacts to your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 before signing into your Google account, your contacts don't synchronize with Gmail.
After you've associated your Google account with your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, 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.
