Answers to some of your questions about synchronizing contacts between your Sprint Optik 2 and Gmail
How does my Sprint Optik 2 back up and restore contacts with Gmail™?
If you set up a Google™ account on your device, your Gmail contacts are automatically imported to your device. After you've associated your Google account with your device, anytime you add, import, or transfer a contact, you can choose where to save the contact. New contacts don't synchronize with your Google account unless you select Google.
If you add contacts to your device before setting up a Google account, your contacts don't synchronize with Gmail. They save as PHONE contacts.
