    Sync with googlemail all contatcts via iTunes works fine I did the same, then when you link your android with google mail it loads the contacts.

    Yep,

    Get a googlemail account and store all of your contacts in there.
    Then your Android, or iPhone 4.0 when you 'upgrade' , will sync and update automatically.

    If its jailbroken get sim manager from cydia and send the contacts to the sim card.

    If you have your iPhone set up as an exchange account then it will all be synced. If you log onto google on a PC do you see all your contacts?
