Wow a reply to a 2 year old thread! I'd forgotten all about this conversation.
Welcome to the site mate, yep the info still holds true, it's better to use your google account for syncing contacts and calendars, for multiple reasons
So, this post 'aint dead yet!
I have an original Galaxy S.
I've followed your steps to sync all EXISTING contacts to gmail with great success. All contacts now synced.
My problem: Any new contact I add using my phone is automatically saved to the phone memory. I am not given the choice to save to SIM/gmail, nor can I find a setting anywhere that lets me edit the current default location. I'm pretty sure I used to get prompted with a choice when adding contacts. I think I must have selected 'phone' as the storage location & checked the box along the lines of 'remember this choice for this action'. Now I can't chane back!
I've googled the shit out of this with no luck - surely I'm not the only person to have had this problem.
Please help - I've got my contacts sorted (100% gmail) & I want it to stay that way for future contacts!
When you add a new contact you should see at the top of the screen where the contact will be saved. If you click on it then it will bring up more options where you can save the contact to....see screen shots below....I'm on Android Jelly Bean (4.1.1) so will look slightly different:
