When the contact items (or several) are set to 'phone', how can they be changed to 'gmail' in order to sync?
In the post Contacts Sync problems: phone contacts not syncing to Google,
it says that contacts set to 'phone' will not sync. So, how can they be changed?

You need to export your phone contacts in to vcf format and then again import it into Google contacts.
Steps in Android 4.2:
- contacts -> settings > Import/Export -> Export to storage.
- contacts -> settings > Import/Export -> Import from storage. - This will ask you to select your Google account to save.
Edit/Delete or remove duplicates in http://contacts.google.com. Thats easy.
