If your iPhone is running iOS 4.x and lower, then the method from another answer is practically redundant, since apps are not compatible with that version of iOS and iCloud did not exist back then. In the occasion, iTunes can help you sync iPhone contacts to Gmail.

1. Download and launch iTunes. Then connect your iPhone to the computer.

2. Open the device summary page. And Click the Info tab.

3. Check “Sync Contacts With” and then select “Google Contacts”.

4. Type your Google account’s username and password. And click Apply.
