How do I transfer my contacts from iPhone to Gmail ? I am not sure which is the correct site to ask this question, because it is a non-technical question. Can anyone guide me please?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
There are a few ways to do this, but the primary way is actually built into iOS. I gathered the information from this link where there is a good comprehensive run down of all the details in setting up a Gmail account and getting the syncing going.
Set up Gmail using the Exchange trick so that contact syncing will continue in the future:
And then to transfer your contacts to Google it looks like you will need to transfer your current contacts to iTunes:
Note that you will have to turn off iCloud contacts sync if you sync with iTunes. It won't let you transfer that to iTunes otherwise.
For another option you can use this app to transfer your contacts to Gmail, and manage syncing.
This looked like a good tutorial on setting up the sync using Exchange.
All iPhone contacts will be synced to your Gmail account. If you were syncing the iPhone contacts to iCloud at the time of syncing with Gmail, look this tutorial to transfer iphone cloud contacts between accounts instead.
