    Your back up for your contacts is gmail. Now you can do this with the phone as well but go into gmail on line and set up your contacts as you like. I have to do this as well, mine are all out of whack for some reason too.

    Edit. I see what happened. I had selected the wrong contacts group. Do like I described but put them all in "My Contacts." Then when you go back to my contacts select the one that shows your gmail account. You should be good.
