    Are you on Windows or Mac? I would suggest trying to sync your phone with your Mac or Windows address book. Export your contacts from that application and import them into google. Than use google and iPhone sync.

    sorry yeh I am on a mac, I ticked Sync Address Book Contacts but that wiped my phone contacts, since apple don't let you copy contacts to sim I couldn't import contacts so I had to restore from a backup. How do I sync to address book on mac?

    I am without a Mac until I get home but in the mean time, you didn't have the check box checked that says "replace contacts on this iPhone" did you?
