If the android smartphone has a google account with it, like you can recheck that it is shown in the settings for Accounts, then do you still need to SIGN IN to this google account to do anything like sync between phone and google account, or to download and install "APPS" ?

once you setup your google account at phone setup and its showing as google in accounts. You do not have to sign in again. The sync and contacts backup will happen automatically if that feature is turned on.

Thanks.  Good to know.  The reason I asked is because no "syncing" has been occurring.  I put a few contacts into the smartphone and tried syncing but nothing went into the Contacts part of the google/gmail account.

You have to save the contacts to the google account. If your contacts are saved onto the sim card or your device google account won't pick it up. Then if you have already done that and it still wont work try going into the google account and turning contacts sync off then on again.

That's disappointing.  I believed I could just put the contact names and phone numbers into the smartphone and then use 'sync' to put them into my google account.  I accomplished the needed upload to the account using 'share', from phone to google.
