Adding Contacts to Gmail on an Android Phone
When creating and saving a new contact for the first time, the phone will default to saving the contact to your device and not to your Gmail account. To save it to your Gmail account, be sure to select, as the first step, Gmail. How to do so is different on different phones, but it's usually the top box of the new contact box. After you do this a few times, your phone likely will start defaulting to the Gmail setting. Contacts saved your Gmail will sync to all your Gmail devices. Contacts saved to your phone will not sync with anything. Whether the iPhone works in the same way, I have no clue.
