What approach should I take to export my iPhone contacts to Gmail?

I'm on the iPhone OS3, I want to get my contacts on my phone in sync with my Google contacts, but I don't want to lose what is currently in my phone. So far I have been under the impression that by just turning the Google Sync on that it will overwrite the info on my phone. I don't currently have all the info on my phone in Google contacts so this would not be desired.

"We recommend that you upload them to Google Mail using iTunes.

(PC instructions here.)

Don't forget to make sure they're in the ""My Contacts"" group, as that's what we'll then sync back down to the phone.

It's a pity that the iPhone won't let you upload them on the initial sync, but at least the iTunes option isn't too painful..."
