How can I change the backup from Verizon to Google?

In one of our two i510 Charge phones the Contact list is currently saved in Verizon's Backup Assistant. 

Now I want to change the "Save Contact To" symbol that is in the phone's contact list (see attached photo) from Verizon (RED colored) to Google ( Black colored) so we can backup/sync the contact list with Google rather than with Verizon. 

Currently all the contacts in the phone have the Verizon Red colored symbol.

My question is, how can I do this???

Click Contacts>Menu>Import/Export>Export to SD card

Once it's done exporting all contacts, Click Menu>Import/Export>Import from SD card>Save contacts to xxxx@gmail.com

Also, your screenshot only shows Phone, SIM, and Google as save locations, so I'm assuming that when you said Verizon red you meant the orange Samsung TouchWiz save to phone option?

winnersmw,

Thank you...great answer.  I marked it as answered.  On my wife's phone all the RED Verizon symbols are now BLACK Google symbols and we can finally backup to Google.

My photo shows the only three options I have which are  Red for phone (which I called Verizon), black for Google, and Green & Orange for SIM Card.  There were ONLY those three options,.  The reason the photo was cut off at the bottom was that it showed my GMAIL email address.  I had no orange Samsung TouchWiz save to phone option unless it is the Phone RED colored one, which it is.

Furthermore, it is nice to have our contacts saved on the SD Card too.

Thanks again,

JerryF

PS, Other Charge phone users take note:  you may want to print and save Winnersmw's answer in case sometime in the future you want to switch your backup/sync choice between Verizon and Google.
